would be this one friend on his/her own or friend + SO, possibly + kids?

if it’s the friend alone then I’d invite him/her to keep the peace. I think it would be kind of awkward since tht friend would be the only one out of a group of friends not to be invited.

@Mrs.Lonestar:  this! 

What is the harm in inviting one or two more people to ‘keep the peace’ in the group?  How would you feel if the tables were turned?  Would you be okay not being invited or would you feel left out and excluded?  Also how close is he to your FI?  If they hang out quite frequently it might be awkward and put you in a bad light when your Fiance has to tell his friend that he isn’t invited because they need to keep it small and he is not friends with both of you.

I would invite them. It’s not worth trying to break up an established group.

Its ok to have guests that are friends with just your Fiance or just you… You just haven’t had a chance to get to know this person yet.

If she’s your fiance’s close friend, she should be there.  I don’t know my fiance’s friends from college at all, but that doesn’t preclude their being invited!
