What would you do?

I am a little short on time, so I will just give a very brief explanation.

A good friend of mine is getting married for the second time. Her first marriage was a quick one at the court house. This marriage is going to be a full blown extravaganza. She and the groom already have a child together who is four and recently diagnosed with Autism. There is a program that the state offers for children like him and he was accepted into it, however, she must pay $4,000 (it is actually like a $20,000 but the state picks up the rest).

She recently told me she isn't going to put him in the program because she doesn't have the money, BUT she is still planning on her wedding.

Myself, along with many other friends, are very upset over this. Yes, she can still cancel the wedding and get 90% of her money back, but she refuses.

If you felt as strongly as I do about this, would you go to the wedding?

Ditto for me on the above. I have worked with Autistic children and I know how difficult it is to get into a program like that so it's surprising that this extravaganza is still going on, are you close enough with her that you could mention off handedly when she talks about her financial constraints: "If you need any help on scaling down the festivities I could give you some great resources for a more affordable event"?
