    Tell them! But word it carefully.

    Don't tell them! it will be fine.

    I don’t really think this will be a big deal. Worst comes to worst, they’ll have each other. WHo knows, maybe a few drinks and a fun crowd will bring out her BF’s personality. No need to make it awkward beforehand by mentioning it to them. You’re just setting up a weird situation that might not even take place.

    I don’t think it’s necessary. He won’t know anyone there regardless of how big or small your wedding is. Personally, I would prefer meeting new people in a smaller more intimate atmosphere; it’s less overwhelming that way.

    If you’re really concerned about it, you can say something to your friend, but don’t approach it as a “warning.” Just mention in passing that it’s an intimate wedding and there will be few people there. Just make it in a completely different topic of conversation than it would be if you were “warning” her about it being small. For example, if you talk to her a lot, you could say something about how you’re lucky that you didn’t have very many invitations to send out because it’s a small wedding, or that you love your venue because it’s perfect for a small wedding. That way, she’s on notice, but it doesn’t come across as you not wanting him to be there.

    They still have each other, I don’t think you need to warn them!
