Having three nieces there is hardly having 60 kids at the wedding. If they could make an exception for the 8 yr old why wouldn't they do that for the grooms sister who lives out of state?
Why is the OP expected to get over it?
Its close family. Its not a distant cousin, its his sister!

If it's a case of they can't afford it, I'd be taking 3 guests off the lists to include my nieces. OP - if I were you I'd be doing something else instead on the day with the kids for sure.

Sorry to hear this has upset you.
I have been on the other side of this. I forgot to ask my SIL to be my bridesmaid and she stopped speaking to me for years. YEARS.
Honestly, I'm not one of those people that find that kind of stuff important, and maybe your future SIL doesn't.
My SIL and I are now pretty close, it took us 10 years to bounce back from that wedding (i'm now divorced).
I can understand it may sting now but, is it worth getting this furious over a situation?
Oh and PS: It was also a childless wedding. We had a couple of breast fed babies though.

This thread makes me glad we got married young (I was 23) and the issue of inviting kids was irrelevant as most of our friends had no kids and I was one of the first in my family to marry. It would be different now as my cousins have got about a thousand kids between us all but I would never dream of not including my nieces and nephews.
IMO the overblown carry on about weddings is STUPID!!!!

We had a child-free wedding. The family kids came to the ceremony, but weren't invited to the reception. Honestly, the oldest was around 5 and there were 13 others younger than that. I loved it when our niece ran up to in front of us saying our vows and threw her dress up over her head it was hilarious! As far as we were concerned, the ceremony is the important part and we wanted all the family there for that. The reception is an adult party. I didn't have the kids at my 30th either!

These type of things are important to her. As previously posted she was not invited to a cousins wedding last year. She went and cried to her grandmother about how upset she was and low and behold she was added to the guest list. She managed to get herself a pity invite.
