I would just give him a plus one. This is what we did for our groomsmen who are not in commited relationships. I doubt she would want to be there anyway after the breakup.

@Meant2Bee:  When it comes time to mail the invitations, I would ask him what his preference would be.

@Meant2Bee:  Yes plus one. I wouldn’t put her name if they broke up. She probably doesn’t think she’s invited anymore anyway.

His name, or his name and guest if you’re allowing one. Just because he had a girlfriend at the time you sent save the dates doesn’t mean you have to still afford him a +1 of whoever he feels like bringing.

I’d just invite him and a guest. He can decide from there.
