    No, you’re not obligated to invite anyone : ) If she’s the ONLY extended family member you’re cutting out then that’s probably a bad idea, I wouldn’t do that. But if you’re not inviting any of your cousins then I think that’s fine. She sounds pretty wrapped up in her own life, she probably won’t even realize it’s your wedding day lol. Invite the people who mean most to you & Fiance. Smaller weddings make the guest list hard (mine was same size as yours) but on the day of you’ll be glad to have an intimate group of close fam/friends.

    I think your cousin isn’t taking you, your Fiance, and your sister in consideration regarding her ceremonies so I don’t think it’s that big of a deal to omit them from the guest list especially considering you are already limiting the amount of guests to begin with.

    @Mrs-Sept-2013:  If you dont want her there for any reason, simply do not invite her.

    @Mrs-Sept-2013:  Yea I understand, and I wouldn’t want her there either after she was so incosiderate! But, I’d worry that you not inviting her would end up being more hurtful to your aunt then to her…maybe ask your mom what she thinks?

    Also keep in mind not everyone’s going to be able to attend the wedding, you can usually invite a *few* more people than you want your final # to be, and it’ll work out in the end. Good luck!

    @Mrs-Sept-2013:  She doesnt seem to care about your feelings or your immediate family’s feelings so I wouldnt invite her.  She was rude to not invite your Fiance to theirs.  You are a couple.  I say leave her off your list.  Dont have someone at your wedding that you are unhappy with.  Just seeing her may throw your mood off a bit.
