Thanks in advance for your help!
An acquaintance of a friend invited himself to my fiancee’s future bachelor party. The problem is, given space constraints (and his horrific personality…he’s already voiced his goal for our wedding reception is to sleep with one of my bridesmaids), we are not planning on inviting him to the wedding.
My fiancee is non-confrontational, and has yet to correct him. The bachelor party is probably a year away, but I’m worried about letting this acquaintance continue to believe he’s invited to the wedding, especially since he’s brought up his excitement for the party multiple times.
Any ideas on when and how to handle the situation?
Just to clarify, my fiancee knows this guy because he went to college with a childhood friend. We hang out with him about once a month in a group setting. Neither of us have his phone number, so we are barely friends with him.

ugh, I have a guy like this too. He keeps creepily asking me about my girl friends that are coming to wedding. I really can’t stand this guy. He is always so rude and innappropriate (he hit on my FI’s brother’s girlfriend of 6 years at our engagement party!) Unfortunately we have to invite him to the wedding because he went to school with my FI and constantly calls him (at 11 pm) to talk. My Fiance, also, is too nice to confront him or sever ties completely. I have serious concerns about how he is going to behave at the wedding.
I guess just ask yourself if you or your Fiance would you feel bad if his feelings got hurt over not getting an invite? Or would it cause problems with the mutual friend? If not, I would nip it in the bud ASAP. Next time he says anything just say you guys have decided on really small celebrations, you’d like to include everyone but it’s really only going to be close family and friends and leave it at that. As long as you guys don’t make plans or talk about it when he’s around he should have no reason to feel entitled to an invite.
