My opinion is that it’s YOUR day and you should invite who you want there 🙂

We invited only some aunts and uncles and only some cousins. It’s fine to invite just those who you are close with.

I think in this case, since it will be a very small event and you are inviting them partly because your Maid/Matron of Honor is clearly invited, it is ok not to invite the rest of your siblings.  There are a LOT of them and it sounds like you are not close to the rest.

IF you were inviting a few more of the siblings, I would say you need to invite the others – this is what we call inviting in circles (all aunts/uncles. or all cousins, or all great aunts/uncles, etc.)

I think it depends a lot on family dynamics.  In my family, you can’t invite some aunts/uncles and not others without starting a huge family feud, same for cousins.  If the dynamics in your family are different, then invite just who you want to be there.

I think you are fine as long as it really is a small wedding. If it gets back to the rest of the family that you have 20 friends there, that would be bad.
