    Default Bad etiquette?

    Would you think it was bad wedding etiquette to invite only one person from a couple if you and your groom disliked the other person?
    DF's best friend is lovely but neither of us get along with his girlfriend and have both chosen not to have anything to do with her.
    This has not effected their friendship however we feel it might it we were to only invite him to our wedding.

    What would you do in this situation? Invite someone you didn't want there just to keep the peace or only have the guests you wanted?

    I think that would be extremely rude and immature. I do not like everyone I have to interact with, but I do it because I care about other people in my life and don't want to distance them.

    Very rude. Think how it would be if the shoe were on the other foot.

    I'd either invite them both, or neither of them.

    Sorry, I think it is very rude to do this! I think either both or neither.

    Good luck!

    Yes, it's bad etiquette and quite rude. If i was the friend i would insulted that you did not include my partner in the invite.

    i think differently. I've never understood why you have to automatically invite partners. If you aren't friends with them, then why should you have to pay for them to attend your wedding. But I don't really 'do' all this wedding etiquette, so I'm not the best person to comment.

    You must invite both. Trust me, you won't even remember half the people there on the day anyway, you will be so busy and wrapped up in your new husband

    All of the above.

    Honestly it's one day, no one says you or your fh have to even acknowledge she's there.
