I say invite everyone. If DH’s family wants to be uncomfortable, it’s their loss. You might just let your brother know ahead of time so he is prepared if someone tries to make a fool of themselves, but given you say that everyone is “just one great beautiful group package” I think your family and Darling Husband will be having a grand old time, and DH’s family can join in the fun if they want. No one will care if they sit on the sidelines, like I said–their loss!!

Invite everyone and let things fall as they may.  It’s one thing to be uncomfortable and another thing to physically fight with each other.  A little discomfort is common at wedding where families and friends don’t know each other very well and may not necessarily agree with each other’s lifestyle choices, be they gay or straight.  If the issue is that they may physically fight, I wouldn’t invite anybody prone to throwing the first punch.

Oh wow, I would invite them. Since you have so many concerns, call the ones that you feel will “act up” and let them know what to expect. If you don’t want to call them directly, call the one in your family that you know will spread the word. For sure they’ll get the message. From there, you can let them decide if not being around homosexuals is more important than being apart of your vow renewal. My two brother’s are the only family members on my side attending my wedding because I’m in an interracial relationship. Let the chips fall where they may. If they’re going to let another’s difference keep them away from showing their love to you and your husband, oh well. The show will go on successfully without them!

invite everyone! it would be really rude to not invite his family because you think they may not get along with your friends. 

people have different point of views on everything

but they love you, and your husband and i am sure they would not do anything to ruin your day
