Hi @Nic01:  Personally, I can see 100% where you are coming from.

IF it was any other sort of Holiday / Vacation you probably wouldn’t mind so much… but it is YOUR HONEYMOON… and now you are planning a similar holiday for your Ex and his GF… does feel wierd to me… thinking that my Ex would be doing the same holiday as my Honeymoon, and that I helped make it happen.

Ick !!

On the otherhand, you aren’t dealing one-on-one with your Ex, you are helping your Friend… the fact that she shares that info with someone else, and they end up joining her on the trip is really not something you can control.

I’d keep helping, as she is a Friend (and who’s to say he’ll go with her?).  It is a tough spot to be in, but make her your priority, afterall she is who you have been working with all along.

(( HUGS ))

Hope this helps,

Yeah, I’d probably be honest with my friend.  That now that you know your ex is planning on coming, you feel a little weird about making him a copy of your honeymoon for him to take with his new girlfriend.  I think if she’s a good friend, she’ll understand when you’re not feeling particularly gracious.

I agree there’s something icky about planning a romantic getaway of a lifetime for an ex.

Sorry hon, as I said I feel for you.

Lol, at the comment about FaceBook… the root of all modern evil / drama / trauma… I am sure you can find a way to live without it.
