While I agree that family is SUPER important, I would think that if a "close" family member were even CONSIDERING getting married, they would let us know once they heard us remotely talking about a trip. That way, there would be no surprise weddings to pop up. Heck, last spring we were talking to some friends (okay... so maybe it was February) about our son's b-day and they mentioned when they were having their wedding - all of this was discussed even before the save the date cards were sent. Turns out they were planning the wedding for DSs b-day. That was plenty of time to move up his party a week so we could all spend time together and have fun. It ended up working out better than we thought it would, but again, we had plenty of time to make arrangements to move dates around. It's so difficult to pull off a full wedding in 3 months, let alone tell everyone the good news.

Your trip is set. That is a time that you reserved to spend with your family. While missing a family wedding is sometimes looked down on (by the relatives) they should understand that this is a time that you are considering special by taking your family for the summer. Besides, you said yourself that the airport issues would put someone out what 2.5 hours to pick you up? If I were the person in charge of picking you up, I'd tell you to stay where you were and we'd see you at the next family reunion.

Don't cut the trip short because someone failed to mention a little thing like marriage... send a lovely gift (like PPs have mentioned, find something fabulous ((and personal to them)) at WDW) and have a great time.
