I would ask your aunt to not say anything at the wedding. It is her business and a family event is not the place to air it.

I would also keep out of it as it is between your aunt and uncle. You don’t have the full story only what your aunt has told you.

This is a family situation that doesn’t involve you at all.  If your relatives can’t be mature enough to deal with it outside of your wedding, thats on THEM, not you.  Hopefully the relative has enough common sense to decline the invite if there is a lot of family discord going on, but trust me, you don’t want to get yourself involved by uninviting someone.   I had major family drama going on around my wedding, the relative in question had the decency not to show up, the other relatives knew that even if he did show up, they would need to be grownups about it, and I kept myself uninvolved in their bullshit – thats really the best way.

@BartenderPlease:  I agree.

I wouldn’t involve yourself in their conflict, OP.

How does your dad feel about it? You call your dad “her now ex”, so your parents are separated, so your mother would have no love for your dad or his brother, so your mother’s likely to be biased. At the very least you need to get uncle’s side of the story via your dad. But probably best, like others say, is to stay out of it. And it sounds like there’s a good chance uncle won’t come anyway.

In any case, divorced couples (i.e. your aunt and uncle) should always be seated well apart unless they’re on friendly terms.
