chevaldame:  other people will tell you that she’s your family nonetheless and you HAVE to invite. I personally believe if someone treats you horribly, family or not, at some point you have to put your own happiness first and cut people out of your life.

Of course the biggest concern is your parents. Only you know the best. But be prepare you sister might be evil enough to make your parents choose sides. Then, what are you gonna do?

chevaldame:  Your relationship with her doesn’t sound good, but I wouldn’t say that it is bad enough to not invite her to your wedding (unless you’re just having a courthouse ceremony).  I gather you and your sister are both still relatively young? You two might still grow into an adult friendship one day, and you might regret not having her there. Not inviting a sibling to a wedding is a pretty big deal, and one that she, or your parents, might not be able to forgive.

I would invite her. People really will be focussing on you and your new DH that day, not your sister.

My sister and I don’t speak.  When each of us got married, neither invited the other.

chevaldame:  Invite her but pay for security that will kick her out if she wears something white/ attempts to do something crazy to upstage you.
