Generally, married couples get invited as a pair, and usually engaged couples or those living together get invited too. I know that’s a lot of extra people, but I would still extend an invitation to your siblings’ partners. If your siblings do attend, maybe some of them will choose to go solo, but it’s nice to respect their relationship and to give them the option. A wedding is a celebration of one union. It’s nice to have other committed couples there to celebrate too. 

Our wedding celebration is also going to be small, but we didn’t exclude spouses or committed partners on the invitations.

How do you think your husband would feel if your sister got married and invited you but not him because they have only chatted a few times??? 

Please invite thier SO expecially if they are married. When you become married you become a unit!

You need to invite married couples, living together, or engaged couples. You need to invite your siblings so it would be rude if you didn’t.

Absolutely should, especially since they are married and some of their children will be there or involved in other ways. It is one difficulty with big families but they need to be included.

You should invite all your siblings’ SOs. Who cares if you do not know them that well, they should be invited bc they are family.
