Are there any old exes you've remained friends with who made it on the guest list?

    One of my closest friends and I dated for a couple of months. We decided we are so much better at being friends and will always be in each other's lives. She has supported my FW and I since the beginning and loves us both, we love her too. My FW never thought twice about her being at the wedding and coming early to help me get ready. But any exes from long term relationships have not been invited for various reasons.

    Yes. My FH and I are inviting one of my exes, but that's because the two of them best friends before I dated either of them. I knew how close they were when I was dating my ex. My FH and I got to together 2 2 years after my ex and I split. My ex and I broke up mutually broke up and remained acquaintances, but my FH and him have always been very close. No matter what happened with me in their lives.

    We are civil with our exes but definitely not in a position to invite them to our wedding.

    No. Neither of us are friends with our exes so it would be beyond weird to invite them out of the blue.

    I would’ve absolutely invited my exes but one passed away years ago. I think she would’ve been very supportive of the marriage and been that awesome friend carrying my train.
    The other one I’m still friends with just lives 3000+ miles away so she can’t make it. I would’ve loved to have her at the wedding, she adores my FH and she’s a lot of fun to be around! We ended on friendly terms.

    FH absolutely hates his exes, they were abusive to say the least, so they’re not invited.

    This one is tricky for myself because one of my exes is now considered my "brother". We dated back in high school and my family adopted him after we broke up and now he is gay. So him and his boyfriend are invited to the wedding. As for any other exes nope on both my side and my FHs side.

    No! Not happening. The one that I am still somewhat friendly with lives out of state so I am not going to bother. My FH is not friends with any of his exes.

    No. This was a hard no for FH because my ex's are trash and his are too so he was like "I don't want them there"

    NO way! if his ex-wife shows up there may be a fight! Only one of my exes would I consider having, but that would make my FH uncomfortable.

    Absolutely not! His ex wife hates me (long story) and my fh doesn't like my ex fh because he likes to tell me all the time about how he still loves me and we should have worked it out (he cheated and had a baby with someone else while engaged to me) so we will definitely not be inviting them.

    FH's Best Ma'am is actually an ex (they dated briefly in high school).

    I invited one of my exes as well (another very short-lived high school relationship) but he can't make it.

    Absolutely not. I find it to be very disrespectful or maybe that's just my exes. Haha, best of luck to those who do invite them though. Smiley smile

    I sure as HECK don’t. I hope FH doesn’t invite anyone either. To me that’ll be rubbing it in their face saying “see i found someone better than you and your at my wedding watching us celebrate” that’s just how i feel
