I think that you should try to not let your cousin not inviting you to her wedding cloud your thoughts on this. If you want to invite those family members, then invite them. If you don’t want them there, then don’t invite them.

If you are able to accomodate those guests (should they all decide to come), then I would just send them an invitation. You are being kind and courteous, and perhaps this will be the olive branch your family needs to come back together.

My father passed away many years ago and after that we lost touch with his family.  We weren’t that “close” to begin with but we did see them at holidays and I too had fond memories of my cousins and aunts/uncles.  Us drifting apart was partially due to where we live, I never find myself anywhere near where they live so I can’t just pop in or drop by, it’d have to be a “planned” visit and due to our not being close that just never happened.  Many of my cousins got married and we weren’t invited.  But when it came to my wedding I wanted to include them.  I invited all of them, including my cousins who had gotten married but hadn’t invited me.  I am so glad that I did b/c they were totally thrilled and 2 of my aunts, 1 of my uncles and 3 of my cousins came.  It was so great to see them and they danced the night away with me.  I am happy I invited them so I would say to invite them.  Your situation is different due to it being such a long trip for them but like you said the thought is what counts!
