scooper19:  No of course not. You don’t have to include anyone on the program or invitations that you don’t want too. I’d include your fiance’s step-father and leave off your mother’s husband. Nobody will notice it I’m sure. 

I think you’re over thinking it 🙂

julies1949:  +1 again! This is good advice. It doesn’t accomplish anything to “slight” him; it would only look bad to others.

Obviously I don’t know any of the background to why you don’t like your step father but I would urge you if possible to put your dislike to one side and welcome your mother’s husband to your wedding.  My children will have a stepdad when I get married next year and I would be devastated if he wasnt invited to one of their weddings in the future.  It is very difficult being a mother and in a relationship with someone other than your children’s father  – such a balancing act of trying to keep everyone happy.  You are about to embark on the happiest times of your life and it would i am sure make your mum happy to include him in your celebrations and I see no reason not to put him on the program.
