If you have the money I don’t think she’d mind.  Are you paying for everything else too car rental condo?  Maybe everything is a bit much.

I do not think in anyway is it required- especially conisdering everything else you have done. But of course it would be nice.

However, its possible that she cant buy it herself and she may not be able to come.

How much more money are you talking? If its not much, then go for it. But it seems like you are already putting out a lot of extra money for her…

It’s family that you care a lot about.  If you have the money to spare, and she is already under other stress and may not be be able to afford it due to recent mishaps and not her own frivolous spending, then yes, I would help her out.

If money is an issue for her, she may never be able to book the flight.  And… the longer she waits, the more it will cost.  If you want her to attend the wedding, I think you should buy the ticket.  

However, I see your FI’s point about wasting money.  Why does your sis need to stay in the condo for days after the ceremony?  Since you will be leaving the day after the ceremony that is just you two paying for her vacation.  Why can’t your sis stay with your Future Sister-In-Law afterwards and then fly back to IL?  You don’t want your sis in the condo on your wedding night anyway.  I don’t see why you need to rent her a car at all.  She will be there with you before the ceremony and can ride with you. Afterwards she can ride with Future Sister-In-Law.  Is your priority having your sis attend your wedding or giving your sis a free vacation?

I think you need to make sure your Fiance is ok with it before you do it. $200 isn’t a lot of money, so as long as he is on board with it, then you should be good to go

@MarryMeTiffany: Would it be an option for you to book it and pay for it, but to ask her to pay you back when she is in a more financially stable place? That seems like a compromise to me – you can guarantee she will be there/have a ticket, but she will eventually pay for it.

@MarryMeTiffany:  I don’t understand how your FH doesn’t want to pay for the ticket after wanting to pay for a condo and rental car that he nor you will be using for 5 days. I’m assuming you are paying for her Disney vacay as well.  I don’t understand it but maybe your FH feels he has to draw the line somewhere or maybe the least she could do is buy her own airline ticket.  I’ll go along with daydreamwanderer’s idea.  You book the flight then have her pay you back.
