@GoldMishra:  Honestly, I had some serious issues with inviting one of my aunts and I did in the long run. Here are the questions I asked myself to help decide:

#1 – Was I ever close to her at any point in my life? My answer for this was that I was VERY close to her when I was younger. We drifted apart after my mother died. Without getting too lengthy my mom died from abusing prescription drugs and my aunt still does so this really hurts but, it doesn’t change the fact that she practically raised me – literally had me more than my mother did

#2 – If something were to happen to her would I feel guilty that I shunned her? Once again, my answer was yes. I don’t have to be super close to her again and having her at my wedding isn’t going to hurt anyone. I will sit her with other family members that deal with her on a daily basis and I honestly trust she wouldn’t come high. She is not the healthiest woman (besides the prescription pill habit) so if something did happen I could see myself feeling guilty that I didn’t include her as a guest.

@GoldMishra:  Could you invite her without her husband? Just let her know that he doesn’t even acknowledge you exist and didn’t want you at their wedding but that you would like her and her daughter to attend. That way, you invited her and if she chooses not to come the decision is on her.
