does anyone have suggestions on your good gf who has a serious bf whom you do not like? but most of your other close gfs' bfs, you wouldn't mind having present ... it's a small wedding so she would be singled out if i didn't allow her to bring a +1.. thanks in advance

linburdett, something like that depends on WHY you don't want her bf to come. Does he drink a lot and tend to be rude when he's drunk? Are you concerned he'll be a jerk to the other guests? If you think he will truly negatively affect your reception, and your gf and bf ARE seriously dating, then I think breaking it to the bf in person, just explaining you wish you could invite him but the venue size prevents it or something. If it is just because you don't like him, but you're allowing other gfs to bring their bfs, it will be considered very rude to not allow her to bring him. Alternatively, you can explain your reservations to your gf, but leave it up to her whether she wants to bring him or not. Either way, restricting someone will require a tough talk with them.

I had a situation like this and I talked to my gf about it (it was no secret I didn't like him- she had vented to me on their many break ups and so I knew all his dirt) and left it to her to decide, she decided not to bring him.
