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.
