I am inviting an ex just because he is still one of my best friends from college and we value eachothers friendship. Although the wedding is in Boston, MA and he is in the Air Force out in Cali so we don’t know if he will make it.

Neither one of us will be inviting an ex, though I know one of mine would love to come…that’s just not going to happen!

No way. Neither of us are in contact with any of our exes– not that it was horrible or anything, but you just move on because the relationship ended for a good reason. Besides, my most recent ex was 4 years before I met Fiance and I wouldn’t want to waste my time tracking him down.

- Wedding: June 2008 - Winery in the Gold Country
I like your criteria Mr. Bee. Neither of us have exes that are close friends. And I met Mr. Peng shortly after coming out of the womb, so I really don’t have any exes that I would count as "real" exes. I’m friends with my high school ex, but I can hardly count that as a relationship.

I only have one ex coming, even though I"m still friends with another. I don’t think of either of them in that way anymore. Really, I feel the same as Mrs. Penguin- the ex that is coming was from high school… and he’s come out since then anyway. 🙂

UMMM as far as i know there are no ex’s coming to the wedding…..AMEN…not sure how that would work bc of the difference in ages he has a longer list them me (LOL) but I have meet his ex- wife and if she could make it I WOULDN’t have a problem…Their marriage ended on good terms and we have had good convo’s since we have meet and been dating..I can honestly say since they are slightly older and more mature she has helped me (at least in understanding somethings about him, them, and the kids that i will always be grateful for)

I’ll be inviting one of mine, he’s one of my best friends and is part of a larger group of friends. I’d be sad if he turned down the invitation because he felt awkward, but I’d understand.

My x in laws will probably come b/c I’m still close to them and we have a good relationship and they totally understand the dynamics. But my x? Heck no. My family might pummel him if they see him..they’ve not spoken to him for over five years, but that is the result of what happens when he did their girl (me) and their grandson (my son) wrong. All I have to say is I was divorced on Jan 3, and he was remarried Jan. 4.

My Fiance invited his girlfriend from High School/beginning of college..so let’s see ..they offically broke up when he was around 20 years old, I think they had a brief (weekend) fling 6 years later…which was right before we met 7 years ago but I’m not really too interested..lol..as I give you every detail! HAHA!

We’re inviting one of my ex’s, but mostly because he’s a good friend of mine and Mr. Burgundy’s. If he wasn’t a friend of Mr. B then forget it.

I’ve never been friends with my exes, after I broke up with them, we pretty much cut ties. And I flat out FORBID any drama at my wedding so I was shocked with Future Sister-In-Law told me how FI’s ex-girlfriend called her up a few months ago and said "oh I heard he was engaged, I was thinking of getting back with him" Yeah.. over my dead body she will. Fiance hates the woman for all the things she’s done to him and he flat-out said that never in a trillion years was he going to give her another chance. FIL’s hate her and never really liked her and what concerns me is the fact that, if she finds out where the wedding will be held, she’ll try to crash it, and that wouldn’t be good because I’m not a violent/confrontational person, but if you cross that line I will get nasty. But I highly doubt that’s going to happen, Future Mother-In-Law and Future Father-In-Law love me (they said it) and they wouldn’t let anything happen at our wedding. So no, no exes will be invited to our wedding, I dislike drama and I wouldn’t want that on our big day.

My ex-husband (of nearly 20 years) will be there. Then again, our two children are the honour attendants. My ex and I were divorced back in 1996, and both of us have moved on.

Well, I’ve only had like, two serious boyfriends, and by *serious* i mean immature stuff from high school and we dated less than a year. I guess I don’t get why you’d stay friends with your ex after you broke up, obviously for a reason, and why you’d want them at your wedding. Unless you have kids together or some weird tie like they’re related to your Fiance or something.
I’ve just always been one of those people that you break up for a reason, so you move on with your life completely. But, like I said…. i was 17 when i dated the guy before i met my Fiance, who i met a few months before i turned 19.

Wow so glad this was posted! I will not be inviting any of my ex’s because there is no reason to. I did not remain close friends with any of them and I want my wedding to have my absolute closest friends only. Not sure if Fiance will invite his ex but after reading Mr. Bee’s 3 criteria I kind of feel more at ease if he were to, esp bc of #3
