    Well since you’re already including out of town family, and they will be staying with those people, and are closer to family since she lived with you, then yes I think they should be included at the dinner. You don’t have to include any out of town family though, we aren’t it’d be way too many, but another option would just be to keep it wedding party and parents/siblings only.

    I think you don’t invite her. It would be a nice sentiment to invite her, but I find the best way to be fair is to draw a line and stick to it. If you are inviting bridal party, immediate family, and family from out of town she doesn’t make the cut. It’s the best way to be fair. 

    i had a similar disagreement over our rehearsal dinner guest list. I opted to do a lunch earlier in the day and invite all out of towners to meet up (lunch is at there own expense) and only have bridal party and immediate family at the rehearsal dinner.

    Your family was her “host family,” so I think she (and her SO) can be counted among out-of-town extended family. I would invite her.

    If your fiance is saying this is really his last straw and he’s putting his foot down after compromising on everything else, why not respect that? He’s allowed to have a say, too.

    If everyone else in the house with M and her boyfriend is going to the rehearsal dinner, then I think you should invite them.  It would be awkward for them to be left behind.
