    Most of my exes and I are still friends. Sure I would.

    I wouldn’t bring an ex I had just broken up with! It sounds like you know a lot of overly passive people, none of them seem to want their Ex’s to go but won’t uninvite them either. Maybe you could offer to play “bridezilla” to give them an out? That way these people you don’t know won’t be there and your invited guests won’t be put in the awkward position of hanging out with an Ex all night.

    I can’t fathom why these exes would want to go.  Spending an evening with 59 strangers and the guy I just broke up with?  I think that’s what happens to bad people when they die.  I’m going to bet that the exes will take the initiative your friends wouldn’t and decline.  Good luck!

    I would bring an ex as long as there were no lingering feelings.  People like to have a date at weddings even if its just a friend you are bringing, showing up alone is no fun, especially if you dont really know anyone else at the wedding.  Your friend who is going through a divorce probably just needs emotional support.  As far as numbers go, those three friends were going to bring a +1 before you knew they had broken up, so why does it matter now?  Having said that, I really dont get why the exes would want to go, especially the girl who was with your friend for only a month.. weird!

    @MrsTamboril:  Ummm, if people have just broken up, but they had invited their now-ex to come to the wedding when they were still together. . . I think the break-up definitely voids the invitation to SOMEONE ELSE’S wedding!! How odd that all those people are bringing their exes just because they feel they can’t disinvite them! Of course they can! Why don’t you just tell them that you really just don’t have the space, that’s it, no plus-ones, matter closed? I think that would solve awkward problems for you and for them!

    No WAY. That is so bizarre to me!

    If I was invited to a wedding through a BF/GF and we broke up, I would IMMEDIATELY assume I wasn’t going! How bizarre!
