I would just invite her to the whole wedding, since the friend is doing you a favor.

@Dashwood:  I agree with the other posters.  You should invite her, he’s doing something nice for you after all.  Besides, I’m sure 3 months into dating your FI you would have liked to bring him to a wedding that you were invited to, too.

Part of the “Invite her to the whole thing” camp here! If he weren’t doing you a favor, then it would be more justifiable not to invite her.

Honestly consistency is key with wedding invite policies — it kind of sounds like he was the ONLY person who did not get a plus one?  And then you asked him for a favor?  Eep!  Invite the gf!

We gave all of FIs single friends a plus one.  No guy wants to go to a wedding anyway, nevermind stag.  There are only 3 of them so it’s not too big of a deal for us.  They all found dates to bring.

@Dashwood:  We are planning to go with this rule too: married or living together gets a +1, everyone else, no. We are havign a very intimate wedding (50ish people) so people are understanding.

BUT given that the friend is doing you a favour OP, I would invite the gf.
