    My only thought is letting your mom know ahead of time that he will be there, at least.  But yeah, if this guy has been your father figure and he’s an important person in your life, it is your wedding and you should invite whom you want!

    My parents are divorced and I’ve become somewhat close with a few of the men she has dated. But I would never think to do this. My mom trumps any closeness I once felt with a boyfriend of hers.

    Talk to her about it. Easy solution. Tell her what it would mean to you and ask her if it would be hurtful to her.

    I would have an honest talk with your mom. Tell her that he is an important part of your life and you feel that people like that should be invited and ask her if she can be accepting. Because she is paying for half, she should be included in some way in this decision. I would definitely invite him if your mom wasn’t paying – no question – but since she is I would try to get her on your side first!
