I whole-heartedly believe if it is a situation which is unhealthy and makes you uncomfortable, you should not do it. I do not agree with your mother.

If you won’t be comfortable, then don’t invite him.  Your wedding day is about you and your SO and you should be totally comfortable.  I’m inviting my dad, but only because I know he won’t come.  And I’m only doing that because my mom said I should.  Mom’s are obliged to do that.  I don’t think you should invite him despite what your mom thinks. This should be about YOU and you SO, no one else.

I agree with mmmtacos – don’t invite him. you want to have the most beautiful day of your life – and if you know that he will create drama and make your day miserable – i’m sorry but there’s NO point in inviting him.

i’m very sorry you are dealing with this dilema – but i agree to disagree with your mother – do not invite him.

I also have a situation with my “father”. I have just recently come to terms with it. I will not be inviting him. I want to be able to enjoy my day with my new husband and our friends and family that truely care about and love us. My “father” is very toxic. He will not be missed.

Unlike you, my mom passed away, just over 10 years ago, so she did not influence my decision. I do have a stepfather that I will be inviting, but we are not close, so he will not be walking me down the aisle. He was disappointed, but understood. I may do a father/daughter dance with him, but I haven’t decided about that yet.

My advice to you is to do what is in your heart and what you want. Once you make the decision for yourself, a great weight will be lifted. Remember, this is your’s and your husband to be’s day; not your mom’s. You have to do what is right for you and your mom will just have to deal with your decision.
