    They are your siblings so I think they should be invited. I have 2 older siblings who have a diff dad but in my family’s case…we don’t differentiate. The terms “step” or “half” have never been used by my family…to us they are our brother and sister…the end. I think it will be more noticeable if they aren’t there given they are your only siblings.

    I dont think it matters if they are your half they are still your sibling/s if you feel they should be there go with what you feel…Even if your Fiance has not met them its not an awkward place to meet its not a bar or anywhere crazy… its a family event in a way even though it is YOUR day : )

    I agree with JamaicaBride.  My 2 brothers have a different dad, but to me they are my brothers & I have 2 dads.  I call them both dad……..gets confusing when I am talking about both of my dads at the same time…..anywho, they are still siblings & should be invited.

    I think you don’t need to make a decision today. Give them a call, say you would like to visit to introduce them to your Fiance, and see how it goes. If they are excited, and you all do meet, invite them. If they show no interest in having you over/having dinner/making any effort, don’t invite.

    @snake…before you invite them, maybe call them up and let them know you are getting married and ask them if they want to come. They may not even be expecting an invitation.
