Seriously awkward and ridiculous. Of course I politely explained that we’re keeping it small and mostly family. But, ew, who does that? How rude!! And also slightly amusing!
Share similar rude, ridiculous stories please.
Happy FriYAY! <3

I would have laughed, maybe snorted, got my crap together and told him no, politely.
Then I would of walked away and laughed some more. You know the embarassing kind when you sound like a dying pig? That would be it.
For the record though, not many of my exes are worth my time anymore 🙂

Eeeeeek. Good response though! I had a friend ask if he could have the first dance with me at my own wedding. He was joking… mostly.

My ex asked. I’d have invited him to the evening (uk bride) but luckily a mutual friend had his stag weekend the day of my wedding. Phew!

My ex husband’s parents wanted to come to my wedding. I have a great relationship with them and they are involved in my son’s life, so they thought they were getting an invite. I had to explain to them that, as much as I loved them, I didn’t think it was appropriate. I couldn’t even believe I had to have that conversation.
It sounds like you handled his request with grace.

mrsfiddlesticks: I did laugh quite a bit. To be fair, I’ve been with my fiance for over 10 years.. so I dated this guy a LONG time ago. When I politely declined, he acted all cool like he was kidding but he definitely wasn’t.

Update: he just changed the subject and started sending me wrestling clips. OMG I can’t. I might lose it from laughing so hard. WHAT IS MY LIFE?

My ex, whom I have not had any contact with in 5 years or so, found my honeymoon registry and sent me a message through it. He said he looked me up, looks like I’m doing well, wanted to say hello, etc. I contacted the registry site and asked them to block our registry from coming up on internet searches.

I think it’s nice to be friends with exes, but I know that it’s not a popular opinion. My ex (boyfriend of 8 years) comes over with his gf once a week for dinner. He is coming to the wedding.
Nothing to do with exes I think it’s ALWAYS rude to ask for an invite to a wedding.

juliaGG: it’s one thing to invite your friend who comes over once a week for dinner to your wedding (who you happen to have a past with) and another to invite someone you don’t talk to whose only link to you is that he’s your ex.

Darling Husband is (well, was) good friends with an ex of mine, and had been friends prior to us even dating. I dated this ex before Darling Husband and him even hung out, and Darling Husband and I met through mutual friends… but small world! Darling Husband was actually an usher in his wedding to the girl he cheated on me with.
Anyway, Darling Husband debated inviting ex and hiw wife, but I told him that I didn’t want him there and my mom would freak. *lol*
We wondered if they’d just show up, or a couple of exes sister’s… but none of them did. Which was fine. They stopped hanging out after the wife got a M-F, 8-5 job so the ex didn’t hang with “the guys” on the weekends as much as he used to, and you could never just invite him out without her being with. So, it wasn’t cos we started dating (although this ex was NOT happy when we started dating, which was so funny).

I just rant into my ex’s parents the other day. The mom asked to be included….. ahh *nervous glances* They are VERY sweet people, but I dated their son for about 5 years, so having them there would certainly be uncomfortable, and strange.
I also have an ex (different guy) who is super weird. He consistently tries to contact me. If he asks to be invited I will honestly laugh slash cry haha
