I need help!! The best man wants to bring a date, but I don't want to invite her. I don't mind her, but she doesn't know any of the family besides the grooms parents. I don't want her to feel akward. My bridesmaid is bringing a guest as they are living together and have been for several years now. My maid of honour however is not. And the groomsman will not be bringing a guest as he has been to weddings before and knows that he will be spending very little time with his date if he brought one.
Do I invite her or do I tell the best man that this is my day and his date is my maid of honour?
You need to allow him the option to bring a date, just as you would your maid of honor. However, maybe suggest to your fiance to have one of the groomsmen that doesn't have a date to show special care to your MoH. The reason for the day is to celebrate your union. So do that. And let your guests, especially those close to you, enjoy their time, even if that means bringing dates that will most likely be ignored.

I think you are right , if it is someone he has been iwht a long time or is living with or is engaged to (or has been dating a long time and they are a "couple') then Yes she should be invited but otherwise NO, this is NOT a Date he is "working" and cannot spend time with her and you don't want HIM distracted worrying about what his "date" is feeling etc.
This is MY opinion on this and may NOT be everyones.
