Having seen your dad’s feelings on it, I would say invite the aunt you want, and not worry about the other three. Your dad has made it clear that it doesn’t bother him, which also sounds like he’ll have your back if the other aunts question you on not being invited.

Fiance and i have this same sort of dilemma. his father has two sisters, one of which has never ever been nice to Fiance, and has never treated Fiance as a family member (FI is adopted). he doesn’t want his aunt there, but we also don’t want there to be drama.

i say, invite the aunt that you want to. especially if your dad agrees with & supports your decision.

We only invited one of my aunts, because of the same thing, there is no relationship there, so why would I have wanted them at my wedding?  Not one word was said

My dad has 8 sisters (6 brothers) and the ONLY one I invited was his youngest sister. Her and I have always been close. She was my babysitter when my parents needed one and we look exactly alike! I don’t have an issue with some of them (but most). The ones who I wanted to invite (but didn’t) would have told other family members about it and they all would have just shown up.
