If you see them a lot as part of family gatherings, I would.  We invited my sister’s in-laws and they were thrilled to come, even though I’ve only spent a few big occasions with them.  We did have a bigger wedding though, 165 people.

I think for your situation it would be nice of you to invite them!

TriPaC87:  If you’re okay with them coming (and it sounds like you are), I would invite them – it seems like your Future Sister-In-Law invites your mom to events (even though they’re not related), so it’d be nice to return the gesture.

We invited DH’s brother’s inlaws, as they were there to watch his nephews so his bro and SIL could enjoy themselves.

We also invited DH’s BIL’s siblings, as Darling Husband has known for a long time (sis and Brother-In-Law have been married 10 years), and we always see them when they’re in town. We did not invite their mom (dad is deceased), cos she lives far away and never comes up to visit except for Christmas.

TriPaC87:  I’d invite them, since you always see them at family events and gatherings, they are kind of like extended family, no? I’m inviting my sister’s in laws and her sister-in-law because I really like them and will likely see them at family events for the next 50 years 🙂

*they voiced to my sister that they would love to be invited (i think they like me too)! And after looking at our guest list, I determined I could!

I invited my brother’s fiance’s entire family, my cousin’s inlaws, and my husband’s cousin’s inlaws.

These are people that are at every family event and we see them often and are close to them. If these are people you are close to and see regularly and you can swing the extra invites, I would definitely ask your sister in law what she thinks about it.
