I would NOT go against his wishes. It’s his family, and therefore, his choice I believe. This isn’t something you should dictate.

It would be a poor precedent to go against your FI’s wishes…especially when he DID extend an invite (in the form of a GM invitation) and was already turned down.  That probably really hurt his feelings.  Having his cousin RSVP no again?  Not so much…

This is something that should be left to your FI to decide. If he wants to invite him so it doesn’t look rude or weird then that’s up to him, but I wouldn’t do anything without talking to him first – in fact I’d be leaving everything to do with this issue up to him, especially seeing as it’s such a sensitive issue.

I would not invite him.  Your FI may change his mind in the coming months and that would be the time to add him to the list.  This is an interfamily matter and is best to leave it that way.  I have always found it best to stay out of those matters.
