I would let it go and “simply let her make her decision and don’t say anything.” Your son knows that you have extended the invitation to them. The ball will be in their court. And your son will know that it wasn’t your decision for them not to come, if that is what happens.

I think that it is a very nice gesture to invite her and the boys. I think all you can do is send the invite and leave it up to her. She knows that you want her there, and it is up to her to make the decision to come to the reception.

Totally agree with noritake22. Congratulations to you for being a mature adult. I’m not sure I could ever do that. But in all seriousness, bravo.

I think this is a very nice gesture. You are being very mature and it’s so good for your son to have a good relationship with his dad/stepmom (dad’s gf) I think you should just invite them to both the ceremony and reception and maybe follow up with a little handwritten note a few days later and say essentially what you’ve written here. “It means so much to me that you have welcomed my son into your family and I would love if we could all get together and celebrate our new “modern” family” Good luck!

Exactly-  awesome gesture inviting them.  As long as they know they’re invited, and your son knows you hope they can come, all you can do is leave the ball in their court. 

Good luck!
