    @BEWLove:  You don’t have any obligation to invite them.  You are not being rude.

    Don’t invite them. They’re not really part of your family (harsh but true) and you’re not required to invite them.

    @BEWLove:  Why have you automatically jumped to her being passice agreesive or mean spirited? She reached out to you and said she wanted to send you a gift. And then added a qualifier about a wedding being too hectic a place for a first meeting. It sounds to me like she felt it would be a good opportunity to reach out and wanted to make sure you knew she didn’t ecpect an invite to your wedding but wanted to do something nice for her half sister. It also sounds like she would like to meet.

    @BEWLove:  Im in a similar situation, but the resentment isnt as bad between my step sister and dad. In the end, I invited her, and she was so happy to recieve an invite.
