My significant other’s son (who I am very close to) is getting married and we are hosting the rehearsal dinner. His ex-wife and my SO do not get along (although his ex-wife and I get along fine when we happen to be together).
I’m trying to think of some appropriate wording on the rehearsal dinner invitation as I’m sure my SO will not want his ex-wife’s name on it. (she will not be paying for or planning any of the event) However, I don’t want his son (or his ex-wife for that matter) to feel bad about it.
Any suggestions that will make everyone happy (or at least make no one unhappy)

Yeah I think your So needs to just realize it’s not about his feelings for his ex and it’s about the kid. So he should do his best to make it a smooth process.
Are inlaws going to be on there? If all the parents are on there and she isn’t it’s not fair. If he is the only one hosting, I think it’s fine for him to include only his name. I also think rehearsal dinner invites don’t need to be so formal.
For ours which was hosted by my inlaws. We simply put an insert into the people were invited invitations, with all the information on it.
If he has such a big issue just put the married couples name and say something like please join for the rehearsal dinner for A and B at this location.
