I think that your closest family, being pretty much honored guests, should get a +1.

you will have plenty of photos that she’s not in.

 Try to talk to your dad about your feelings on this.  I mean I’m guessing you two are the only one’s paying for the wedding and that could be what you use… cost, the venue only allows a certain # and that’s all, no flexibility in that. I’d ask too, if the woman is aware that this is his daughters wedding.. his family will be there etc., it’s kind of overwhelming to meet someone for a blind date to their daughters wedding.  

If you do change your mind about her coming, I’d sit down with your dad and explain that she sits behind the family during the ceremony, and that she is not in ANY of the family pictures.

Let your dad have a plus one. Just make it clear to him that she’s not going to be in any photos.

I agree with you. Chat with your dad and tell him how you feel. I can’t imagine he will argue with you. it’s your big day and you’re his little girl and he will want you to be happy and not uncomfortable.

It’s inappopriate to bring her on your wedding day, it’s hard enough meeting her at a dinner or something. I’m sure daddy knows he’s the black sheep and probably doesn’t want to come alone to the wedding.

@arendiva:  agree with keeping her out of the photos, just let your photographer know as well 

If you dont let him have a date, will there be anyone else there for him to enjoy himself with?? My decision would be based on that

I completely agree with you. I would NOT want my father bringing a random person to my wedding. If I were you I would just tell him that due to the size of your venue you are maxed out on guests and you will meet her another time. Also throw in that he will be busy as Father of the Bride and she might feel neglected. Good Luck!
