2 of my good friends who had been together for about 7 years just broke up on thursday night. Apparently the breakup wasn’t mutual and they do not wish to be friends anymore. We just mailed invites last weekend and people got them tuesday/wednesday. They don’t live together but I sent them invitation to her address with both their names. Should I sent him his own invite now? I heard through another mutual friend about their breakup, so I’m not sure if they would be upset that I know? I also don’t want him to feel like he wasn’t invited. Does anyone have thoughts about the appropriate thing to do?
Also I guess now I will need to split that group of friends 2 separate tables so they won’t have to sit together?
I’d appreciate advice. Thanks!

Yes – definitely different tables! I would send an invite to him.

One of my friends just called off her engagement the week before my invites were supposed to go out. I quickly had hers re-printed with just her name so it she wouldn’t feel devistated to see both of their names on their envelopes.
I think you should definately send him an invite and definately put them in separate tables… like far away!

I would also personally let each one know that the other is invited – if it’s very difficult between them, one may wish to not come. It’s nice to give them a heads’ up – don’t make them ask you if their ex is going to be there.
We had to do this with a divorced couple that we were friends with, and in the end, one party has chosen not to attend, thus solving the whole issue of where to seat them etc.
