I guess it’s good that they aren’t in your bridal party anyway, since it’s sort of stupid that they wouldn’t be around you or be in pictures with you.  For the kids, I would suggest just having them as guests since it’s sort of pointless if they won’t be in pictures with you.

I would ask the niece if she wants to be in the wedding (assuming she’s old enough to make that decision – no need for the bad blood to continue by pulling her if she really wants to walk down that aisle with you). If she wants to be in the wedding, then have Fiance talk to his sister and say that it’s important to his niece to be part of the wedding and he would like to still offer that to her. But, if she is going to participate in the wedding, she needs to be a total participant (including being in the photos), otherwise there’s no point.

As for the day of, if the ring bearer turns out to just be a guest and people ask why he’s allowed to be there (as the only kid), just say that originally he was part of the wedding party, but things changed at the last minute and you didn’t want to completely exclude him from the day.
