Bride-to-be's dad wants to bring multiple girlfriends to wedding 👀

A bride-to-be is in a dilemma after her father demands to bring all three of his girlfriends to her wedding, despite being offered a single plus one option. Her father's side of the family has a normalized "multiple wife/gf" way of life, which the bride-to-be does not support. She had gone no contact with her father for several years after her mum filed for divorce and came out with the truth about her father's lifestyle, shunned by her uncles as well. After redeveloping a relationship with him, the bride-to-be is clear that she has no interest in meeting his girlfriends. When she sent out wedding invitations, her father assumed he could bring all three of his girlfriends, his brothers, and their girlfriends. The bride-to-be calmly reminded him that he was only allowed to bring one guest, and she wasn't going to pay for four extra women she had never met. Her father flipped and accused her of discriminating against his lifestyle, holding a grudge about his divorce from her mum. What should the bride-to-be do? Let's see what people have to say in the comments.
