Urgent Invite Question

I have a major problem. My mom has been dating someone for the past three months, and says he is 'the one'. The problem is that we have to send out our save the date's soon, and I do not want to invite her boyfriend.  We will be getting married in a small ceremony in Hawaii, with a larger reception when we get back home. I have met him, and cannot imagine having him at our intimate ceremony because he just rubs me the wrong way. I know my mom, and I know that she will want to invite him, so I would have to make it very clear that he is NOT invited.
My question is: Do I have to invite him to the 'destination' ceremony in Hawaii? Would it be appropriate to only invite my mom? And, how do I handle the situation of having this discussion with my mom? Any suggestions?
