How is your great grandmother going to get to your wedding?

Would your parents or another invited relative be willing to pick up/drop off and escort your great-grandma to and from the wedding and reception?  If so, then invite her.  If not, then I think you will have to invite a “companion” to escort her.  I don’t think one extra person is really going to inflate your guest list that much!

There’s always a chance that she won’t attend.

Adding, if you invite Great Grandma, put “and guest” on her invite.  Do not send a separate invite to your great-aunt (her “companion”).  Let Great Grandma decide if Great Aunt or someone else will be attending.  That way, Great Aunt doesn’t get a solo invite and think she can come sans Great Grandma.

My suggestion would be to address the invite to “Great-Grandma and Aunt”. That’s what we’re doing with my FI’s great grandma and uncle- we know that neither will be able to make it, but not inviting grandma would likely cause some hurt feelings.
