as a sibling i would be pissed if my brother got married nearby and i wasnt invited (although i eloped i did that in a different country)  – the family already has issues with you so i think its a nice olive branch. i know its suppose to be about “your day” but its his day too

i also would not engage her in a sit down to discuss plans with her.   time for your Fiance to man up and decide if hes going to be your husband and support in your relationship or go crying to mom every time he feels hard done by.  if he is oversharing with her the issues you two have im guessing there isnt much time to share the good times and that could be blinding your Future Mother-In-Law attitude

I say if you’re inviting the parents, you probably should invite the siblings too. That way you are keeping it just immediate family. If this really bothers you, then you need to talk to Fiance about what you both want. It seems you were happy with it being just the two of you, and now he’s caving in to what his mom wants. Find out what is really important to him.
