So my ex-fiance is about to get married this weekend. I was the one who broke up with him and omg so glad I did, but that is another story. I got married two years ago and he asked to be invited to my wedding. He came to the ceremony and mailed us a knife set (around $90) which was nice, he did not stay for the reception (but told me he was not going to, so it’s not like I paid for his meal/drinks).
Anyways, his wedding is this weekend, my husband and I were not invited, which is fine with me as I am amost 8 months pregnant and live 4 states away. I wouldn’t say we are friends, but we have kept in contact because we own a house together (which should be taken care of very soon after his wedding, thank goodness!).
So I am curious, what would you do if you were not invited to the wedding, if anything.
Thanks in advance for the responses.

I’d send a card just to say congratulations, but not a gift.

A card is okay but since he gave you a gift, I wonder if it would upset him if you didn’t….

eh, he didn’t invite you, it’s been a while, maybe his FI would be uncomfortable getting a gift from his ex-FI… any one of these would be reason enough for me not to give a gift, even though he gave you one. I voted for a card, but FB would probably do the trick just as well honestly.

Thanks for your input all! I am leaning towards just sending a card. I guess what he did for me isn’t really relavent since it’s not exactly a tit for tat situation. My husband seems to think that his new wife might be somehow offended, I could see that for a gift, but for a card?
