Whoa. That is super tricky. I would think that given all that backstory, it’d be pretty clear why your brothers, and only your brothers, are invited to the wedding.

Perhaps the question here is (and forgive me if this is too personal), what kind of divorce did your dad and stepmom have? Amicable, or not so pretty? What I’m trying to get at here is, will it be okay with your dad to invite your brothers? And not to invite their mother?

I don’t think that’s rude at all. They are your brothers. She isn’t your family any more.

I say address it just to them. Not rude at all.

I don’t see a problem with it. It’s essentially the same as adult friends who still live with their parents. I wouldn’t invite the parents just because my friend happened to live with them.

@Jen51287:  Tricky one. But I have to agree with PPs, I think it would be ok to go ahead and invite them. Sorry it’s such a sticky situation =/

I’m guessing you never had a good relationship with this homewrecker of a stepmom. So I think she will understand why she’s not invited. And if she’s offended, oh well. That’s her problem.

@Jen51287:  If they are old enought o come on their own, then perfectly fine, but if they are younger and would need supervision then no not okay.
