Clearly only the OP knows her family dynamic better than us reading about for the first time. So if she feels this strongly about it, its because her sister has crossed lines before. Typically, I don’t side with posters who do the whole “focus on me, me, me” thing. But what little you shared about your sisters attitude, I can understand your  frsutation. 

You are making some consessions and its still not enough. If she wants a platform to introduce her kid, do like Phadera from the RHOA and host a “Sip n See” on her own dime. I’m sorry, a wedding is 1st and foremost about the COUPLE and secondly about the joining of two families. Why is there always a push to make a wedding about everyone else but the couple. You should be able have the wedding that YOU want, it may not be what everyone else wants to for for theirs and thats fine.

For our wedding, I do look forward to seeing kids from family and friend all dressed up and providing cute moments. However, there is the budget consideriaton and if i’m honest there are a few parents who I know won’t be the most considerate. My biggest fear is screaming kids at the ceremony, the reception I’m not too concerned about.

Caution! Personal opinion to follow!:

Some of you have the most twisted ideas of what a wedding celebration is. I can’t even relate in the slightest. My wedding would not have had near the same amount of joy if the children of my siblings and friends were not in attendance.
