I think you should – it’s your SIL.

I would still let her bring the boyfriend. It’s not worth a potential lifetime of resentment from her/starting off on the wrong foot, and that’s what your Fiance wants to do.

Ouch! I would. She’s your future SIL. You don’t want this situation hanging in the air on your wedding day. It may seem like a small issue now, but you never know if the family’s gonna get involved.

If it was anyone else, I would tell them no, but since it’s your Future Sister-In-Law I would just let her bring him. At least you still know him, so it won’t be like a random stranger at your wedding.

And welcome!

I agree with previous posters… she’s family, you already told her yes, and your Fiance thinks it’s a good idea. Welcome to family compromise! 🙂

I gave my SIL a plus one even though we were only allowing married guests one. We had a very intimate affair with only 40 guests… He was excited and willing to spend all the money to come see us that I couldn’t tell him no.

@Galang_Gyal:  Nah. She knew that you were inviting your BM’s So’s. She’s no longer a Bridesmaid or Best Man (of her own will) No invite, since it isn’t fair to everyone else outside of your bridal party who isn’t getting one.

@Americano:  +1. She’s not a random guest, she’s your SIL. Plus your fiancé thinks you should and its his wedding too.
