I think you just need to get over it.
Not being invited to a wedding or some other event 3 years ago is very petty to be bringing up.
You know you all could have had a baby shower somewhere that would have fit everyone at the same time instead of doing 2 or 3 of them!
Like Jodi said: you sound like you're still in high school and didn't get an invite to the popular girls' party.
If you are annoyed at them not turning up to your parties then stop inviting them or going to theirs. Maybe your daughter and her husband should start paying rent, then the MIL wouldn't be holding it over them.

But it isn't the baby's wedding. And as I said, they may genuinely not have been able to attend the baby shower. They have no obligation to tell you why. It isn't necessarily that she didn't care, that's just your interpretation. I think you are making a super big deal about this apology. You don't know WHY she needed to be with this friend, you are just assuming it was unnecessary. You have applied a lot of judgements here without actually knowing.

I mean, seriously, listen to yourself. You're not getting invited to a wedding of your son-in-law's sister because they are taking revenge on you??? Are you actually listening to yourself? You don't have an entitlement to go to that wedding. It was a small ceremony. You are not HER friend or family.

It is really up to you to decide what to do, but it seems to me you are putting an awful lot of energy and effort into some really petty issues.

Are you still in high school? I'm sorry, but a LOT of this is sounding VERY petty. I am not seeing that these people are doing anything bad. So they didn't come to the baby shower. Why is that all about you? So they didn't invite you to the wedding. You are not their family friend, nor family. My mother wouldn't expect to be invited to the wedding of my brother or sister-in-law! Even though the families get along extremely well, if it were only a small ceremony, they wouldn't get on the list. You don't invite people to a wedding as an "apology". Honestly, you sound like you have been reading WAY too much into this, and what you have stated here (and yes, I read every last word), you are the one trying to create trouble where there isn't any.
