It does seem like the argument escalated very quickly.  I would reach out to your father and let him know that you would really like to have him there on your wedding day but because of budget and space issues you are simply not able to include plus ones for anyone who isn’t married or engaged.  If he choses to miss your wedding because his step-son’s girlfriend isn’t invited then that’s his loss.  At least you know you took the high road and let him know you wanted him there.

Hmmm… if your step-bro has been dating his girlfriend for 2 years now, then it sounds like a pretty serious relationship.  In that case, I would just add the girlfriend and be done with it.

You did kind of put her in an awkward position, assuming your relationship is not strong (I assume that if you arne’t close to your dad,. you aren’t close to her?)- I would say you should have called him yourself to reiterate the one only on the invite, and to tell him it was a financial decision, not a personal one.

I think you should apologize, but that is just my opinion. It is hard to determine without knowing the true history of the relationships.

Thanks
