Definitely just stick to something along the lines of “unfortunately she couldn’t make it today, and I miss her terribly” and then change the subject.

Sorry your sister is being a pain!

I agree with Kartz… don’t even give it too much thought, that’s exactly what she is trying to get… a reaction.  Simply tell her you are sorry she can’t make it, and then move on.  My sister has tried telling me that she refuses to save up to come for my wedding, and that, if I want her here, I have to pay for her to fly (with her 2y/o, her newborn baby and her hubby) money is not the issue for her.  Sometimes siblings have a hard time with us getting attention for one day… just try not to let it bug you too much!

Yeah, I think this is one of those situations where you don’t hair to air your family’s dirty laundry.  Just an “Unforunately she was unable to make it” will suffice.

It’s not your problem and people probably won’t ask YOU where your sister is, they will ask your mom.  If for whatever reason they do ask you just say she unfortunately couldn’t make it.  Besides it’s none of anyone’s business really lol
