Would you invite an estranged family member to your wedding?

Anonymous
Sooo I just got engaged! Super exciting. But now comes my dilemma as to whether or not I invite my estranged sister to the wedding.

The general backstory is that my Mum is NPD, my older sister went full no contact in 2014. She also has a husband, a son who is 8 who I haven’t seen since he was 2, and a 5 year old daughter I’ve never met.

I’ve tried reaching out before and got tentative contact if I promised not to tell my mum anything. In the first few years we messaged on special occasions, birthdays, Christmas etc. in the last 2 years it’s been absolutely nothing.

Obviously if she comes my mum will be there. I want her and her family there too. I might be being selfish but I honestly just want my day not to be ruined by family dramas.

Appreciate any advice.
