Etiquette For Missing a Friend's Wedding

Group Therapy: Miss a Good Friend's Wedding For Vacation?

This question comes from Group Therapy in our TrèsSugar Community. Feel free to add your advice in the comments!

So I am in a very awkward position. Every year I go to Hawaii with my family over Labor Day weekend. In December, I made the travel arrangements and booked my flight. I also made a commitment to run a marathon while there, so I am very excited about the trip. However, I just found out that a good friend (who I've known for over 10 years) has decided to get married on Sunday, September 5, right in the middle of Labor Day. She's a little slow to the planning and hasn't even sent her save the dates, but she has booked the location for that day.

I don't know what to do. I can't get the money refunded for the marathon and keep trying to change my flight and come back early for her wedding, but since it's a holiday weekend, there are literally no flights. I'm getting very upset about this because I don't want it to jeopardize our friendship, but I know she will be hurt if I don't go to her wedding. Should I cancel my entire vacation? I will be losing money. Any advice is appreciated!
