Just tell her to have him drop her off so she can get ready and he can come back for the wedding/reception like every other guest is doing who isn’t in the wedding party.  Explain to her that it is important that you have time with your girls while you are getting ready and that you want everyone to be relaxed and focused on the big day and not distracted by anything.

Sorry you are having to deal with this.

It is totally NOT your responsibility to help them figure out the logistics of it, but if you feel like being extra extra nice, you could maybe suggest somebody who is coming from out their way to give him a ride later on?  I can understand where it is lousy for him to have to take a taxi/public transit when she is going out that way already, so maybe someone you know wouldn’t mind picking him up?

Just a thought – like I said, it is in no way your responsibility to figure out a way for him to get there.

I hear where you are coming from, my BFF is marrying a guy like that. 
If your FI can stomach him could you offer to have him go hang out with the boys for the day? Or if the others bridesmaids SO need something to do have one of them set something up for their guys? To keep the peace I’d angle it as he won’t want to hang out with a bunch of girls fussing with getting ready for a wedding and plus you really just want time with the girls before you offically become a Mrs. It’s a reasonable request and she should understand. If not, let the MOH go bridesmaidzilla on her and step out of it.
