I would guess that’s why she mentioned it, but I certainly don’t think you have to. This would be your daughter’s great-aunt and great-uncle, right?

If you don’t want to invite him, don’t invite him, lol. And more importantly if your daughter doesn’t want him, don’t invite him. If your Mother-In-Law is normally passive aggressive, then yes, she probably does want you to invite him. But seeing as it isn’t her wedding and I’m assuming you’re paying at least a portion if you’re helping to plan, she doesn’t get to decide the guest list, your daughter does, with some input from you if you are helping to pay.

Just goes to show how interpreting things can lead to miscommunication… I would have taken it as “no need to invite them, but I’m hinting at it so that my part of the obligation is done.”  I’d probably tell her no problem, they weren’t on my radar anyway!  haha
