I’m sorry about the death of your grandmother and all the subsequent crazy with your aunt; it sounds awful.

I also have a very poor relationship with my aunt that really went downhill after my grandmother died.   My family had similar issues with the will, etc. so I know how much that kind of stuff can really hurt a family; my mom’s relationship with her sister has never been the same.

I invited my aunt to the wedding, mainly because she would have been incredibly hurt if I had not and because she IS my aunt.  I just did my best to not be in a situation where we were alone (she has a nasty habit of being…well…nasty) and didn’t give her a chance to comment on many things.  It worked out.  It also helps that with 100 people in a room, you don’t have to spend much time one-on-one with her.  

Would your dad be offended or super uncomfortable if his sister were at the wedding?  I would ask him and see what he says.

If you can honestly say that you won’t regret not having her there, then you should do whatever you think is best with the invite.  

I don’t know if that helps, but I wanted to let you know that you’re not alone with this type of issue.  🙂
