Ask Liz: Sibling Drama, Some More (Los Angeles Wedding Planner)

My latest advice column is live on the Broke Ass Bride:

This kind of happiness is a choice your sister can make, too. (Photo by Style Art Life)
Dear Liz,
I’m experiencing a little bit of a rough spot. I’m the middle of three sisters. My younger sister and I are close while my older sister and I only talk when I make the effort to reach out, and even then it’s not reciprocated most of the time. I just found out that my mother asked my older sister and her five children to be part of the wedding. I didn’t want to have my older sister nor any children be part of the wedding. I’ve reached out to older sis only to be hung up on and then have her shut her phone off.
After leaving a message and not hearing back from her, I reached out via email,  which she read and ignored (I know she read it as my mom told younger sis that older sis had said I sent a nasty email).  Drama level is high and we are three months away from my wedding day. Older sister is now threatening not to attend the wedding as she and her kids are not going to be in it.  Mom is mad because this is “tearing the family apart, ” and she is putting pressure on me  to change things. Problem is, I don’t want to. HELP!
