@MsMe:  Depends. Is is a big wedding or a small one? If it’s big and you don’t invite the other two, it could result in some unwanted drama. I would personally invite them and skip the drama, but it’s your wedding and your call.

@MsMe: If the ends justify the means, then don’t invite them.

@MsMe:  Heh, I call 140 a big wedding! Personally, for the cost of 2 seats (and perhaps 2 partners as well), I would invite them to avoid drama. But only you know your family dynamics.

Ask your parents what they think? Esp the one who’s sister or brother’s children these cousins are…

My FI’s fam is super tight, and 100% aunts, uncles, cousins, anyone who ever was deemed an “auntie” all had to be invited on his side

My fam, so different..my parents actually asked me not to invite 2 of my uncles, expressed indifference over 2, and really wanted 1 to come. I decided not to invite any cousins so as not to carry on the weird divisions beyond my parents’ relationships because I’m not close to any cousins anyway, and I live far away.

@paula1248:  yes me too! In my family, 140 is a huge wedding! lol. OP, I guess by your family standards, this is fairly small though?

I’m not sure how you’d get around inviting one sister and not the other two. Of course, it’s your wedding, absolutely, and if you don’t want to invite them, then don’t. However, unless you’ve had an argument with them or they are openly hostile to you, I would invite all 3 cousins only because I can just imagine what dramas you might have. Your one cousin you do invite may not come if she’s offended her sisters aren’t there. But, like I said, your wedding, you’re paying, so your choice! 🙂
