Inviting who you want to your wedding is completely your choice. Is your fiance in agreement with this? If so, have him talk to his aunt and tell her that "because of X, we cannot have +1s at our wedding. I hope niece will understand." This way it is clear. She may still be mad and may not come. Or she may end up bringing him anyways. At that point, you probably will be in marriage bliss and something like that shouldn’t bother you.

Good luck!

When she RSVPs, she will probably just add her bf on. At that point, you can just politely say "we’re so sorry but due to capacity constraints, we are unable to invite your bf to the wedding."

If you are close to the niece’s parents, can you have them hint to her or talk to her about it too?

If you aren’t extended plus ones to other family members not in the wedding party, then explaining that to her may be the best way to go. You could talk to your FI’s sibling, but the girl is 22, she is mature enough to understand this sort of thing… or at least I’d hope so!
