    Don't send her an invite and make sure she is not included on her ex's invite

    Tell her in person that we do not want her there

    Make up a reason for not inviting her, like the # of guests are limited

    Tell your brother. It’ll be his invitation, and it’s his responsibility to not bring her. Don’t tell her anything if you aren’t inviting her. You don’t have to tell people they aren’t invited unless they ask. Work this out with your brother.

    I would make sure your brother knows your feelings and intention to not invite her. Be prepared to stand your ground with her if and when she wants an invitation/explanation. 

    I would also make sure you inform your day of coordinator, or a family member who may be your “wedding bouncer” that she is not to be let i. Should she show up. Hopefully your brother will understand and back you up. Good luck!

    You could ask him first if he was planning on bringing anyone so you could find out who and tell him that you and your fiancé aren’t comfortable if he’s bringing his ex and bring it up that way. And then just make sure he understands it’s the three of them.
