Sorry your feelings are hurt.  What’s the deal?  Could the invitation have gotten lost?  Are they just eloping?  If your brother is paying for the wedding, are you two in a fight?

If you are feeling like this is out of the blue, and others (your other siblings, etc) are getting invitations, I would call your brother to see what was up.  For my wedding I had a cousin get the invitation without problems, but my other cousin (her sister) did not.  (the zip code was wrong.)  We would never have known if she didn’t call us to ask about the invitation.

hmmm…could you give us more details?  Is it possible that it is a very small, immediate family (mom dad best friend sister) only type of thing.  are you sure you are not invited?  maybe they havent mailed the invites or Save-The-Date Cards yet.  how close are you to your neice.  i didnt invite one of my dads sisters to my wedding…i dont like her.  my dad isnt too happy about it, but its my wedding (and Im paying).  is this something you would feel comfortable calling and asking about?  it could be a simple misunderstanding…

I would look and see who else is invited before taking it as a snub…if it’s only immediate family, or immediate family plus a bunch of her college friends, etc., it could have just been logistics. If the rest of her aunts/uncles were invited but not you then maybe try to figure out what is going on, if she is upset for some reason.

When is the wedding?  Are you sure that invitations have been mailed?  Are you sure yours wasn’t just lost?  Is your niece or her dad kind of slack when it comes to attention to detail?  It’s possible that yours fell behind a desk or something and just didn’t get sent.  

 

Did you and your niece/your brother have a falling out?  Are you very close, or do you not keep contact?

 

More details please!
