if you invite one sibling, you should invite the other.

but invite who you want to be there, this is your and your FI’s day.

If he isn’t close to them/doesn’t care if they are there and his parents aren’t paying anything then don’t invite them. It’s your wedding not theirs.

If possible, I’d recommend not breaking up family units in your invites, even if the family members don’t live together. Don’t forget that not everyone you invite will be able to attend. Obviously, the final call (and cost) is up to you though!

@bride_to_be_060714:  You don’t have to invite any of them if they are not close. My husband’s cousins were only allowed to attend as +1s to his single aunts and uncles. If they don’t speak to one another outside of funerals they, quite frankly,  probably aren’t that interested in your wedding anyway.
