Can you not ask your parents to suck it up and have him stay with them for the sake of your wedding?

How long will your brother be there? Can he maybe stay at your apartment if you and FI are going to be at a hotel.  

Honestly, if your brother drives YOU crazy, I probably wouldn’t ask any your friends to host him. If you love him and don’t want him to stay with you, it seems a little unfair to ask that of any of your friends.  I think its asking too much of your friends to host someone they have never met, especially since you say that he is a slob. 

I would talk to him and see how much he can contribute to a hotel room. Since he isn’t on good terms with your parents, he must be paying for his own flight to CA, right? So he must have some money? I would see how much he could contribute and then maybe you and your FI can make up the difference. Honestly, I don’t think its your responsibility to concern yourself with your brother’s accommodations but I think its nice of you to do so. If your mom is so worried about it, maybe your parents can pay for his hotel?

Oh gosh— you already know he’s going to drive you nuts. Maybe ask for a hotel room for him as a wedding gift from your parents? (I kid, I kid)

 

Are there any hostels near by? It might be worth the 25-50$ even out of your own pocket, to put him up elsewhere and not need to worry about it.

Oh my goodness, if you and your family can’t stand to stay with him, PLEASE do not ask one of your guests to babysit him! If one of my friends did that to me I would never forgive them, seriously! I think the best thing to do is to get him a room next door to your parents and give them one of his keys so they can wake him up and get him going if necessary.

Your brother sounds like he could benefit from “Couchsurfing”. I think they do that in the US! Google it 🙂

The other option is to let him stay at your house while y’all are in the hotel before the wedding.
