@Tamtam well said and I couldn't agree with you more! If I were the OP I'd feel quite hurt at being called selfish and that I'm over-reacting. To be invited then have that reneged on is pretty ordinary IMO.

He is obviously not feeling comfortable with his decision given the fact that he wouldn't answer my call.

like I have said earlier, several times, there are people on my brothers side invited who he has NOTHING to do with yet they are invited.
So even if he feels closer to the 8 year old then he does to my daughters he should have just invited them anyway because that is what family do.
I value family very highly and thought so much of my brother until this happened. It has taken me by total surprise and was a big shock.
Everybody says its their day blah blah blah they can do what they want well guess what?? I am allowed to feel hurt and upset.

Don't get me wrong I would be upset too if I was in your situation and I wouldn't accept a pity invite. I would just take a different course to you: accept my brothers decision, try and get a babysitter, skimp on his wedding gift and guilt him with a lovely "happy wedding day" video message from your kids. To try and tell him what you think/refuse to go *appears* to me to be a bit of an overreaction. Is there something else going on/background we are unaware of that is making you more upset?
I don't mean to upset you any further I just don't want to see you further upset by spending time on something which is out of your control.
