if his dad has no place in your FI’s life, then don’t mention him.  what’s the worse that’ll happen?  he’ll get offended?  big deal, your Fiance doesn’t even take his calls anymore.  talk with your Fiance and see if he has any concerns.  the dad was invited, that’s more than enough.

I wouldnt mention him and not care about how  he  feels. My dad left my mom for her best friend too and plenty people know what happened so I’m guessing most people at your wedding knows the situation too? I dont think too many people would be shocked if you dont mention him, I’d be shocked if youdid lol both my dad and my honeys dad arent invited to  our wedding

Ah, the joys of husband’s with deadbeat dads, I feel your pain. :/ Honestly, just don’t mention him. His side of the family will know what’s up and wouldn’t question the fact that you don’t thank him. Anyone else that doesn’t know the whole story would probably just assume that his father isn’t part of his life, which is true. No harm. I’m sure he probably isn’t expecting a mention.

I wouldn’t mention him, I don’t think I could invite him at least with the plus one. If he comes he knows what part he’s played. It would seem hypocritical to thank him.
