Hey ladies. I am experiencing somewhat of a dilemma about inviting someone to the wedding. Sorry, this is a bit long.
My parents recently got divorced (they have been separated for about a year, but the divorce was actually finalized less than 2 weeks ago). My father has a new girlfriend who I met for the first time on Christmas day. Her personality is a little,,, overwhelming. She's very forward and asked FI and I if she would be invited to the wedding (that is a huge pet peeve of mine, I hate it when people ask or assume that they are invited). We are limited on space as it is. Our venue fits 120 and we have 130 on our guest list, with really no way to cut any more people off.
They haven't been together for very long. I know that the right thing to do is invite my father with his girlfriend, but quite frankly I don't want her there and my sisters don't want her there. My dad was the one who left, so I know that my entire family will be uncomfortable if she is there. I can foresee lots of awkward situations (like her trying to insert herself info family photos).
I am torn about this and keep going back and forth. Like I said, I know that the right thing to do is invite her, but on the other hand I don't think that its fair for me and my entire family to be uncomfortable with her around.
Any advice? What would you do?
