    @ambereyez:  I would invite her, thank her for coming and have your Maid/Matron of Honor run interference so she won’t spend the reception trying to talk to you.

    I promise you will be so in love with your new husband that day you won’t care.

    Now, do you think she will try anything to ruin your day? Or will she just be there trying to hug and kiss all over you?

    I’d invite her. She’s family, and I get the impression that not inviting her would look to be pretty glaring if everyone else was invited and came except for her.

    @ambereyez:  No way I would invite her.  She sounds crazy and negative and you’re not even friends with her or close to her so I don’t feel like you should invite her to the most special day of your life!

    Could you invite her but put someone unofficially in charge of her?  I’ve got someone who usually is charming but can have incidents of questionable behavior that I’m inviting, but I’ve asked someone responsible who knows the situation to keep an eye on them and to gently redirect their focus if they engage in negative behavior.  It probably won’t be necessary, but I don’t have to worry and can enjoy.

    If you’re inviting all cousins at that “level” and it would look like you specifically excluding her….then it might make sense to take the high-road here and send the invite. But, if your invite list is already more selective and you’re picking and choosing… there’s no real reason to choose her.

    Personally, I would probably invite her. I tend to be overly nice and get myself in terrible situations that way. I’m almost too forgiving. Do you think she would definitely go if you invited her? Also, if the pattern was that you guys were closee and then distant… maybe things will be okay since it has been so long.

    Hopefully, you’ll be so wrapped up in your new hubby that she won’t even be on your radar if she is there!
