Just the fact that you told him your brother has a date already and he is still asking if he can be his date just makes it cross over into being annoying. Just don’t respond…you already said no in a nice way.

If he can’t be happy for you when you tell him you are engaged then what makes you think he will be happy for you at your wedding… i would let it go and not invite him good luck!

I started using space as an issue rather than budget.  There isn’t anything that can be done about space!  Yeah, you’ll probably feel guilty but at some point you might need to start ignoring him.

You already told him you can’t invite him and why in as nice a way as possible, so I think you should just try and avoid talking about it (Don’t bring up the wedding with him, ect) and if he keeps bringing it up, change the subject. Hopefully he’ll eventually get over it.

really irritates me when the answer “no” is not good enough for some people. if you’ve already given him a sincere answer (which you said you did), then i really wouldn’t pass any more thought to it. it’s pretty rude of him to more or less ‘barter’ an invitation.
