    I voted “hell no” but I really just mean “no.”  I have friends on the Internet, and every time I’ve hung out with them in real life it’s totally awkward.  It’s just a different sort of relationship, and I prefer to maintain my online relationships as they are.  Meeting some of the people from the Internet made everything WEIRD.  =)

    @gingerkitten:  Girl! You already know what I think about people rollin’ up on your destination wedding! LOL 😉

    At least I can say with my girl I know her IRL. I think what it comes down to is whether your FI really wants him there or not and if you are OK with that. I think with an event that intimate it’s kind of inappropriate and you don’t want it to spiral out of control with the gamer friends.

    People are not alwys what they seem  on the net. If FI wants to meet this guy, he can do it at some time other than your relatively small, intimate wedding.

    I don’t think it is the time or place to be meeting someone in person for the first time.  I don’t think your FH will have a lot of time to dedicate to this person while you are in Italy.  If they want to meet in real life they should pick a different time to do it.

    @julies1949:  Agreed.  OP, your wedding is not an appropriate first man-date!

    Eh he needs to meet this friend some other time than at his own wedding. There is probably a more apprpriate time and place.

    @gingerkitten:  This wedding is only for those closest to you- why should some guy who you both have never met in person be there? The focus should be on you two and those nearest and dearest to you. Not on awkwardly trying to integrate some guy who doesn’t know anybody. If he’s so rich he can go visit your FI some other time.

    @gingerkitten:  That’s a very, very reasonable alternative! And more exciting for the guys, since they’ll all “know” each other.
