My DH had not seen most of his mother’s family in MANY years. No disagreements or dislike but they just weren’t close. We invited them anyway out of fairness. Most of them did not come save for one family and it was a pleasant surprise to have them there! I personally believe if you invite some uncles & aunts, you need to invite all unless there’s a special circumstance like abuse or a really big conflict. Not knowing what happened with these family member it’s hard to say but I would try to invite them if the budget allows.

If your relationship is truly non-existent, don’t bother inviting them. They should understand. I would probably still invite them if you have somehwat of a relationship.

We didn’t invite one of his Aunts. He hates her, she was unkind to him when he was a kid. She was the only one we didn’t invite.
