I would wait until she sends back the RSVP to see who she is putting on there.  Unfortunately, if she decides to put her son and his girlfriend on there, then you’ll have to call her and say “unfortunately, the spot is limited for you … I’m sure you understand.  Will you be able to come with your son?”  and go from there.

Have you thought about your mother speaking with her?  (since I’m assuming thats her sister?)

Its completely understandable where you’re coming from, but everyone is so tied up with wedding ettiquette (understandably).  But, sometimes, with some situations, you have to cut it and do what you think is best.

I’d call her.  I’d inform her.  And I’d expect her to understand.  But, I’m a firecracker.  lol

I’m with the firecracker above. I’d call her back and explain that the invite was for her and the uncle. If the cousin would rather escort the aunt and have the uncle stay home, then ok. But other than that situation, you regret that you cannot accommodate additional or ‘substitute’ guests as you’d really like to have your dad’s nearest and dearest there. “I’m sure there will be many other opportunities for cousin and cousin’s girlfriend to meet your family, maybe we’ll get dinner…lalala” etc. 🙂
