Wow, totally bizarre. At least you know you are marrying a great person, since her family loves him so much! Laughing

Oh wow! Yeah, that’s pretty crazy.

One of my ex’s is an usher in our wedding. I bet some people who don’t know us or our relationship very well (i.e. my family members who live in other states) might think it’s weird. However, he was my first boyfriend while I was in high school (ages 16-18), so I think we’ve moved on… He’s also in a very serious relationship, and I have been told there’s a possibiity I could be a bridesmaid when he finally pops the question to his girlfriend.

Hopefully we won’t have any of the things you ran into!

yeah the awkward looks are weird, maybe it has to do with how they broke up? or they always thought the 2 would get back together and are disappointed that they didn’t.  Who knows what goes through people’s minds, but sounds like you did the right thing by just smiling and being good humored through the whole thing. Hopefully you won’t have to deal with the same awkwardness when you go to your ex’s wedding!

We aren’t close with any of my ex’s but we also went to FH’s ex’s wedding. FH and I weren’t yet engaged. It wasn’t akward until like you said we would run into her family and they would carry on about how much they like love and miss FH. I mean hello people that is great and all but maybe say that when I’m not in earshot. I agree with you those run-ins were awkward, for sure.  Oh lord the other run-ins you had or rather your FH had – and in the washroom…come on dude, LOL  – – I hope you’re ex’s wedding is a bit of a better experience, LOL

PS – – Yes we know we have a great guys and we’ll hold onto him…FH’s HAVE GREAT GALS THAT THEY BETTER HOLD ONTO TOO, lol

What is it with people and kids!?!  FH’s half-sister, was invited with her FH and 3 kids, RSVPd for 2, then yesterday, 14 days pre-wedding, his birth mother (her mother) advises the 3 kids are coming after all.  Oh, awesome!  I’m just glad my caterer is a friend and has been super slack about counts and when they’re due and all that (as, my aunts/uncles/cousins haven’t decided yet how many they’re bringing, too!).

Anywho…  it’s nice that you all get along.  We’re actually having a roommate move in this week who is my FH’s ex-gf.  It’s really kind of funny when people find that out, they get real quiet and ask him if I know.  Ha!  Duh.  I think it’s great when people can continue to appreciate the good in each other, even if they’re not compatible for whatever reason.

Sorry you ended up with so many awkward moments.  I cringe at the idea of that happening to my exes that will be at my wedding!
