My fiance and I just got engaged and are planning a September wedding. I am planning on having my best friend be the MOH, so I thought it would be appropriate to invite her parents since I have known them for many years growing up. Inviting the parents isn't the problem... it's her boyfriend.
She has been dating this guy for about a year and a half, and it has not been pleasant. He treats her terribly and has absolutely no respect for her, her family, or friends. Her parents, sister, friends, etc have all been trying to get her to leave him but she just will not. (This is a seperate issue that I don't want to get into here).
Long story short, I want her to be my MOH but I really, really, REALLY do not want to invite him. I have been reading the other posts about the +1 issue and many say that if they are in a relationship then we pretty much have to let them have the +1. I'm also afraid that if he does come he will cause drama with her parents and our other friends because no one likes the idea of them being together.
Call me a bridezilla, but I feel like this is my wedding so I should be able to invite, or not invite, anyone that I choose. Any advice on how to handle this situation?
