I have been in a few situations like this and it isn't always easy finding a way to balance everything. Because this is your husbands sister and I am guessing they all want you at the wedding, I say go. Better to be there and have to leave because of baby than to not make an effort.
Give yourself plenty of time to get there, if you can leave a day ahead of schedule there will be no rushing and you can stop when ever baby needs some mommy time. Not to mention, babies fly free at that age
I understand not feeling up to it being a new mom, but if it were me, I would just prepare to go and enjoy being with family on this special day and duck out when you need to.
I have three children and breastfed them all until they were a year old. We traveled a lot. It wasn't always easy, but to my surprise, there were more easy times than there were hard. Let me know if you want me to share my travel tips with you.
Take care and let me know what you and your husband decide to do.
