I would say stick to your guns and say no. Being in the bridal party is such an honour and special thing and it would be a shame to have her bringing her drama so close to you on your wedding day.

I hope Fiance supports you in this because that will make it all easier.

I’m not sure what kind of relationship you’re looking for with her or if you’re wanting her to play a role in your wedding, but you could consider having her do a reading or being involved in the ceremony in some way, but keep her out of the bridal party.

I would suck it up for the sake of family harmony and keep your fingers crossed that drama stays at a minimum. Just seems easier, I think, and it sounds like that’s what your Fiance would prefer. She’d be invited regardless, so it’s not like you avoid her SO’s presence either way.

I can understand your objection to the felonious husband or whatever he is – he doesn’t sound like good news – but it doesn’t really matter than her ceremony was pagan, right? Just as with any religious ceremony, the legal bit is separate from the religious part of the wedding. If she didn’t legally marry the guy, that’s one thing – but that doesn’t have much to do with whether the ceremony was pagan or not. I’m assuming you wouldn’t ditch her as Maid/Matron of Honor just because she identifies with a different faith than you.

Anyway, I’m sorry that you are upset and I hope it works out OK!
