I would not wait.  And I would not delay your aunt and cousin’s invites – it would suck if they found out other poeple got theirs first.  Life goes on and they may appreciate having something pleasant in the mail that is not sad.  Just my opinion.

My condolences for your family’s loss.

Do you happen to know when your uncle’s funeral will be held? 

If it is being held in the next few days, I would hold of and wait until after the funeral and burial.

Send notes to your aunt and cousins at once, offering your condolences on their loss. They should hear that from you, before they hear about your plans to carry on and have a joyful celebration. Sure, they know and expect that you will carry on — but that is not their focus right now and not what they need to hear.

Your instincts are good, and you have plenty of time. Send their invitations, as Keisha_In_Love suggests, after the funeral takes place.
