Oh that’s a touchy one because if a parent thinks their child is being unfairly slighted well…

I would say have a no kid wedding rather then leave some out, which is hurtful to them and their parents. I think your sister is right you just can’t pick and choose. I get the situation your in and feel for you. Good luck!

are you inviting all of the siblings? It really depends on the relationships- I’m only inviting one cousin out of twelve.

I think it is okay to exclude adult-children you don’t interact with.

I don’t think it’s poor etiquette to pick and choose who you want at your wedding, every single person who has a wedding has to do this with some group (friends/family/kids/coworkers).  I mean, we all have to draw a line some where.

Do what you feel comfortable with.  If you don’t have room for the children of the siblings that you never see, you don’t have room!  You can use your closer siblings to help spread the word about the smaller venue and tight space which has caused you to keep your guest count as low as possible.  If the siblings whom you’re not close with don’t understand or are upset, they don’t have to attend the wedding (and since you don’t see them, who cares).  Just my two cents…
