Grin and bear it, focusing on your dislike if the best man only reinforces his reasons for complaining about you, detracts from your attention on your Fiance and creates unnecessary tension between your Fiance and his friend.  If it were me I would do my best to be cordial and polite, inviting and gracious and draw the line at any disrespect or rudeness on the part of the best man.  If he’s as awful as you say, he’ll hang himself far better than you can, and if not, then there’s nothing to worry about.

If you can stomach him standing up there at the altar with your Fiance, then I say just let it go. You won’t have to interact with him much for the day/night, and regardless of if he’s Bridesmaid or Best Man or not, he’ll probably still be at the wedding.

Take a deep breath and focus on the fact that you get to have your great Maid/Matron of Honor 🙂

Either give up your maid of honour if you insist on him dropping his best man, or grin and bear it. Obviously your Fiance is very close with this guy and wants him to stand up with him on the biggest day of his life. Yes you may not like him, but your Fiance does.

@Nona99:  Agreed. It sounds like this guy isn’t going anywhere, so try to be as nice as possible to him.
