This is where you put on your big girl panties and tell your family what you expect of them. If it was my wedding, I would tell them all, in no uncertain terms, that their drama is NOT to interfere with MY wedding day. They can behave themselves for a few hours then go right back to crying and hating each other, but anyone who brings it with them will be thrown out on the spot. For those who are not coming, tell them in an adult voice that you are very disappointed that one of the most important people in your life is choosing to miss one of the most important days in your life because of their quarrels with someone else. Don't yell. Don't tell them they have to go. Just tell them that it upsets you. I don't know how to go about the money because I doubt there was any kind of no show contract for something like this, but dang, I'd be pissed about that part. There is still the possibility that they will all show up anyway. My family is one of those that likes to tear things apart last minute and act like it's the end of the world, but then they all suck it up and go to whatever thing had been planned. Even if they don't show up, enjoy your day. You and your soon to be spouse will be there and you two are really the only ones that matter.
Now you have a romantic night of reservation scalping to look forward to! You can make the sale, and your husband can pose as a rival for potential buyers. He can put on sunglasses and loudly chew gum while callously acting like money is no object for him, creating a small bidding war between him and potential buyers! Ah, what stories you two will have!
