Honesty is the best policy. There is no way that I could ask my grandmother to lie for me in order to keep myself sane. I feel like that’s never okay. If your decision is made then simply tell him the truth…I’m sorry that you’re not invited, I would like a stress free day and I feel that having you there is not conducive to that type of environment. Do not engage in an argument about why. Just be as firm in the decision during that conversation as you are here about it.

Besides, you never know… he may not even want to pay for or make arrangements to go since it is a destination wedding. It may wind up being a moot point.

Oooh that is a little sticky… I would suggest the same as EsqBailey. Just be as honest as you can with him. Without going into details I would let him know that his life style would be too much for you to handle on your wedding day. If you bring up specifics it might prompt him to get defensive quickly and try to reason something out with you.
