Ok first my aunt gets mad i didn’t put a plus one so she uninvites herself. Then my dad invites his brother and his brothers gf who I met once maybe 20 years ago… And I’m not even very close to my dad. But I think he wants someone there to be on his side which I get but he didn’t even ask me and so I told him no he can’t just invite someone I don’t know– (what if they act up!!?) im worried enough my dad might act up and just be depressed so having his brother come too is weird.. so then he told me fine he understands he isn’t welcome so now he isn’t coming. I feel bad if these people don’t come but I can only do so much and I feel they are just causing drama which would be a red flag during the wedding.. Any advice??

Well, sounds like both of these situations have resolved themselves, so I’d just move on. Dealing with people wanting you to invite additional people is pretty common, you just have to decide what’s best and then stick to it. Good luck!

I suggest you talk to your dad and compromise, and let him bring one other person, who will presumably be his brother. If he knows no one else, it’s reasonable for him to be able to bring someone. I think you can bend the “no random +1’s” when it’s your own dad because, well, he’s your dad and it seems to be important for you to have him there.

I would talk to both your aunt and your father, and let them know that you would love to have them there (if that is actually the case) and you are sorry that they feel hurt by the exclusion of having a plus 1. But I agree with PP, you should move on from this and see if they come around later. You’re only causing problems for yourself and it’s not your responsibility to accomodate them. They are guests at your wedding, and you shouldn’t have to change the “no plus 1” just to get them to come. If they really care and want to be there, they will come regardless.
