Just a fun little game. Would you ever invite your ex husband or SERIOUS ex boyfriend to your wedding? Would you allow your FI to invite their ex?
i was just married for the second time and at times i thought of inviting my ex husband but never ended up actually doing it. So i was just curious if you girls would/have invited your ex?

I’m not friends with any of my exes, so it wasn’t a problem for me. Even if I was still in occasional contact with them, I have no idea why they’d want to come. My husband’s friend asked if he could bring my husband’s ex-girlfriend as a date (my husband and this girl broke up 6.5 years ago – less than a year before we got together). We told him we didn’t have the numbers for it, but honestly, we just didn’t want her there.

I have actually gone to several weddings that featured exes in attendance. All were “friends” with the ex and everyone involved supposedly were fine with the invitations. Every one was a disaster, at least in that department! I’m talking sobbing bride, sobbing ex GF, a groom who spent the night dodging the photographer in a very obvious way any time any time the photographer wanted to take a photo of him talking to the ex, who tried to monopolize the attention of the groom all night.
I’m sure there are people who think this would never happen to them. So did these people.

imhisoneandonly: I didn’t invite my Ex FI to my wedding specifically, but I did invite his parents/family (it was a casual wedding wo he was included) and assumed he would not come, but wouldn’t have minded if he had. We ended on fine terms and though we’re not close anymore we were close before we were dating. Other exes that I don’t have fond feelings for did not get invited.

imhisoneandonly: I would invite my ex but I would not allow FI to invite his ex’s so for that double standard alone…. no ex’s invited

Nope! Makes me think of that How I Met Your Mother episode. It ended badly.

Thanks for all the answers. I did not invite any exes although a ex bf of mine was there because his family was a very good family friend and we were in no shape or form serious! My husband actually wanted to invite his ex gf and I told him he was f-ing crazy! Like hell she was coming to our wedding (I had a bad past with her)

I’m friends with the vast majority of my exs and will be inviting several of them to the wedding. My FI is inviting several past flings of his as well. In fact, I think between my FI and I, we’ve slept with approximately half of the wedding party XD

my husband is still good friends with one his exes. actually, it was more of a friends with benefits type of situation. but anyway, she’s a sweet girl and i really like her. we went to her wedding and we invited her and her husband to ours, but they couldn’t make it.
there’s another ex of my husband’s that i do not care for and would not have invited. it sort of bothers me that he’s kept in touch with her, but i don’t say anything.
i don’t really keep in touch with any guys from my past.

I will be inviting one of my ex’s and his girlfriend to my wedding. He’s still a friend, and there is an entire group of us from high school that are still friends. My FI even suggested having him as an usher at the wedding, but I said that I don’t think his gf would appreciate it. I think it depends on the situation, he may not even come, but I am inviting everyone else from that group so I feel like I can’t not invite him, and we are still friends somit won’t be awkward.

My ex husband and I are friendly and civil, but neither of us invited the other to our weddings.seemed like unnecessary drama to me.

We are only inviting our parents and children to our wedding so that’s a no brainer but if we were to have a huge wedding id have to say a definite no as well. I know for a fact that my SO’s youngest sons mother would try to invite herself but I cannot stand her so she would not be invited at all. I don’t keep in contact with any of my exes and my sons father doesn’t keep in contact with me either but he wouldn’t get invited regardless.
