It depends, I think. If there’s been just the normal sibling drama, then you’re overreacting big time! Not having them at the wedding will permanently change your relationship, it sends quite the message! However, if they’ve truly done something terrible, it makes sense that you wouldn’t want them there.

this will totally ruin your relationship with them. after this there would be no going back. Can you live with that? 

Maybe this is their way of coming around?

I wasn’t invited to my older sisters wedding so I will not be inviting either of my sisters to my wedding. I don’t have a realationship with either of them so it is totally fine that I don’t invite them.<br /><br />If you don’t invite your sisters to your wedding it will totally ruin any future relationship that you will have with your sisters.

Do your sisters have “valid” reasoning for their actions?  Why haven’t they been supportive of your relationship?

Thi will ruin any chance of a relationship between your sisters and you as well as be a dampener if you two have chidlren in the future.

Have you talked with them about the issues?

I think you should reconsider

I would invite them. If you are concerned about the possibility of them being bridesmaids, just forgo having any bridesmaids at all. It will make things easier, and you won’t have to deal with the stress of deciding whether or not to have any of them as bridesmaids.

If I had 5 sisters and they all did not approve of my relationship, I’d have to have a long, deep look at why. Have you asked them why they disapprove?

I’d invite them to the wedding. Here’s why: it’s extremely important for family to SEE and HEAR you both make your vows. Done. See that? Hear that? It’s done. This guy is now your Brother-In-Law. He’s part of me. No more snubbing your noses or whatever. Now, any of that nonsense is a family squabble that we will deal with as best we can.

Anyway, that’s just my $0.02.

If they want to be bridesmaids aren’t they supporting your marriage at least to some extent?

I would invite them to the wedding, but not to be bridesmaids.  They can choose whether they want to be present, and you can decide from their presence and their reactions/behaviour if they are worth continuing a relationship with.

Well at least leave them an invitation on the table. If they come, oh well & sit them at a table together. If they don’t come, oh well.

I’m not inviting my dad. I think that’s much worse. I don’t think you have to invite people just because you’re related if the relationship is crappy.
