In our culture, very few people get together and stay together at 18. So I wouldn’t invite him if it were me.
However as you are only 21, I assume you were a similar age when you met your FI? If your culture marries young in general, then this could be the guy that she marries. Then it would be really wrong to exclude him, as he will be a family member one day.

I really like what you said about your family getting to know your sister’s new boyfriend, and that you are working on repairing your relationship with your sister.
It sounds like one major concern here is the money, so if I were you I would tell her that he is very welcome to come, but she and the new boyfriend must find the money to pay for his ticket. I would explain to her that it is a numbers game, had you even met him when you and your fiance began planning and saving for the trip?
That seems like a fair compromise! If they are serious I’m sure they’ll find the money somehow.
By the way, well done on paying for all your family yourself, that’s great! 🙂
