I wouldn’t even tell her, no point in causing unnecessary drama.  Deal with it after the wedding if she wants to see pictures

“She basically said she didn’t care and didn’t want to be a part of anything involving me or my wedding.”

This is the point at which you no longer owe her any kind of explanation about your wedding including who will be there. If she cared she would be supporting you.

I would not lie to her, but I would be carefule. You are right in that it sounds like she will be upset and not take it well, but lieing almost always ends worse because she will find out at some point- pictures? slip of tongue.

I would tell her that your sister is going because she has always shown support for you and your relationship. And leave it at that. Dont try to justify your decision or defend it. Don’t tell her wha she hasnt done or should have done. Just keep repeating it a few times and if she still has a problem, then just say “I have already told you why”.

I wouldn’t tell her.. I wouldn’t hide it either though.  But unless she asks, I wouldn’t make it a point to tell her.

Considering the circumstances, I just wouldn’t tell her.
