I would suck it up and forget about it! He wasn’t invited, the niece’s aunt explained the situation to her and she still won’t let it go. I think the niece is being quite immature. If you established a guest list rule in reference to "plus one" then stick with it. Don’t let one person ruin your big day!

Is the niece living with her boyfriend? How long have they been together?

You are about to be family. This boyfriend of the 21-year-old isn’t. I wouldn’t fret about it. You are following etiquette….and honestly, people are a little selfish when it comes to weddings. They should never assume that they can bring a date, unless noted. The bride and groom have a budget, and will allow for what they can afford. period.

You’ve already set your limits, so do not budge!! From how it sounds, you’ve handled the situation tactfully thus far.

Def suck it up, it will pass. She is in college, its a family event, she does not NEED her bf there! If they were enagged it would be one thing, but they arent. And a lot of college relationships dont last.

Forget about it, you have enough on your plate.  If you give in on this, they’ll run you over with the next thing.  Good luck!

I’m sorry to hear all this drama is happening over such a trivial thing. I say do NOT invite the neice’s bf. If the neice decides not to come that’s her perogative…your fi’s family understands so that should be that.
