@Shirz:  You are not obligated to invite him. You’ve never even met him. Don’t let your family make you feel like you have to turn your wedding into a family reunion. You can tell your cousin that your guest list is maxed out.

Unless you WANT to invite him, if you really want to meet him or don’t mind paying for his food etc…then that’s fine.

You don’t need to invite him. Especially if you’ve never met! No big deal!

I wouldn’t worry about it. Just send the invitations to the people who are invited. If you wanted to send an email, I’d keep it casual: “Thanks so much for sending the addresses, I really appreciate it! Just FYI – we weren’t planning on inviting John, just because we’ve never met, but thanks for covering all my bases!”

@Shirz:  I think you should not mention you are not planning to invite him. It seems rude. Just thank her for sending the information.

@Shirz:  I wouldn’t invite him but I also I wouldn’t mention it to his sister that you’re not. Just say thanks for the addresses and move on.
