@isabelle_86:  If it were me, I’d ultimately regret not having my sister there.  But it sounds like your family dynamic might make it to where you won’t regret it.  Only leave her out if you are prepared to not have her in your life.  That’s a relationship ender.

@isabelle_86:  You might not invite her over money she gave you and a shirt of yours she took? This is a bit odd. 

I would invite my sister, even if she stole my shirt. Your wedding is 9 months from now – lots of things can change between now and then.

Good luck!

I would invite your whole family and tell them they have to behave for the sake of it being your wedding day.  Not inviting your sister over a shirt and some money is bizarre.

@isabelle_86:  I remember your post from the other day. Is this the same sister you were worried about underage drinking? If you don’t want her and none of your other family is there either then don’t invite her. Do you think these family issues are going to get cleared up at some point? Just wondering bc down the road it may become even harder to reconcile if no one was invited. I guess if it’s all irreparable then it doesn’t make a difference.

@isabelle_86:  I think a lot of people do things like that.  It’s up to you, but personally, I couldn’t imagine my wedding without my family, regardless of whatever drama was going on. 

But in response to your original post, I still say yes, you should invite your sister still.

So your sister gave you money, and expects to be paid back, and because of that you’re not inviting her to your wedding? I’m confused. Give her the money, apologize, invite her. You seem keen to dump your birth family, but that’s a decision you’re going to regret down the road.

I don’t see a good reason for not inviting her. If your mom isn’t talking to you then why are you worried about how she would feel about you inviting your sister?
