My sister, whom I've always been extremely close with, got married this weekend. I wasn't invited. The day I found out she was engaged, I started planning her wedding shower. The shower was 2 weeks ago and was beautiful and very successful (and extremely expensive as she is both very important to me and she expected a lot from the shower). I had been keeping in touch with her about everything. We talked every single day about her upcoming wedding. His family just plain sucks and doesn't support the marriage because no one will ever be good enough for him. They have strongly voiced their opinions about not liking my sister for reasons that are not true (like she dresses slutty. She's actually very conservative). They chose not to invite his parents or sisters because of this. However- because of this, my sister told me 3 days before the wedding that I was also not invited because they wanted to make it fair and not alienate him from his family... My mom and stepdad were able to go, and did. My sister sees nothing wrong with this, but I am incredibly hurt by this. Her wedding has come and gone and nothing will change the fact that I wasn't there. Are my feelings about this valid?
