I dated my bridesman!

...for about 24 hours before I realized that my heart wasn't in it. He was in love with me for years. Now he has a girlfriend whom he loves very much. They moved in together the same weekend that FH popped the question. He and FH became friends and have many common interests.

My fiance made out with my bridesmaid!

...years before I met him. They knew each other from high school. FH and I both went to University of Hartford, but didn't meet there. I transferred to NYIT, where I met my friend. She was so happy when she learned that FH and I were dating and she couldn't be more excited for us when he proposed!

Are there any other brides out there who are okay with the fCt that their FH has either "hooked up" or "made out" with one of their bridesmaids? Are there any brides who "went out" with a a member of their bridal party before? Or am I the only one?

ROTFL!

    I didn't do this, but I did invite my ex-husband to the wedding. And he suggested that if my father had given me away to him at the first wedding, the least he could do was give me away to my new bride. Actually, no one has ever given me away, and I certainly wasn't going to take him up on his offer, but it amused me.

    Not someone in our bridal parties, but I kind of on-and-off dated a guy who is one of my closest friends... (we met through a mutual friend FIVE DAYS BEFORE HE MOVED ACROSS THE COUNTRY, both fell super hard for each other instantly, but basically knew it could never work out because he lived so far and we barely knew each other... so the majority of our relationship had been a long-distance friendship, and the few times he visited we had kind of attempted to "date", but knew it would never be able to work out? It was a very sad situation honestly) But he was actually the last person I had kissed before meeting FH lol. When FH and I first started dating and I told him about this guy and the fact that we were still really good friends, I could tell that FH was trying to be a good sport but was sooo jealous. Then I finally forced them to meet one day, and when we left after they had spent the evening together, FH just walked away smiling and was like "yeah there's obviously nothing between you guys anymore, and HE'S SO COOL I LOVE HIM" and now they're friends too hahaha. We even visited the friend where he lives now, and stayed with him for a few days a couple years ago Smiley tongue He isn't in the bridal party or anything but will for sure be at the wedding! The past is water under the bridge!

    Okay, wait...I forgot to mention...

    My best friend was MOH for her ex-boyfriend's ex-wife at their wedding. A few years later, she was the bride's MOH for her second marriage. She is currently in Vegas celebrating the groom's second marriage. 馃檪

    One of my bridesmaids who I've known since 6th grade dated my FH for literally one date in high school. When we started dating 6 months after all my friends called girl code and placed bets on when we would break up. After one month it all blew over and we were all friends again. It's been almost 8 years since. They all lose the bet and I win. Smiley xd

    I dated a guy from my FH鈥檚 home town and who my FH was friends with growing up, FH and him reconnected when we all ended up in Denver and now he and his GF are invited to the wedding.

    One of our groomsgals was my roommate for two years in college before becoming a closer friend to my FH.

    Our officiant had a big crush in my FH before meeting and falling in love with and marrying my MOH (the two of them is how me and my FH met).

    Who cares? If you have each moved on to great new relationships over time, and you each know you had a life before you got together, what does it matter. There were 3 of my ex boyfriends at my wedding, guys I saw for 3-6 months each. One is now married to my oldest sister, another to the army friend who was my MOH, and the third has been a friend for years, before and after dating. So he brought his wife. And one of my now hubby's girlfriends of about a year married his high school best friend and groomsman, and another married his first cousin for whom Hubby was best man when cousin married ex girlfriend. . . . Jealousy is a useless and corrosive thing. Nice to be friendly for life with people you very much liked and respected, and once had a romance with, who simply were not forever partners for you or your FI. Having grown up in a group of small rural towns, cousins are everywhere, and everyone was someone you knew or dated, it seems, such crossings of paths with exes are common. And my hubby grew up in a tight Italian neighborhood in Brooklyn. The same group of partners just kept changing off. So what you are doing is fairly commonly accepted for some of us.

    FH was trying to date my BM when he met me and actually created drama between us initially. But they learned they would never work and she is now one of my closest friends!

    So this has not happened to us personally, since FH and I happen to attract crazies, but my sister and her husband. We grew up in a small town and everyone knew everyone and my BIL has hooked up with some of my sisters closest friends In the past 馃槀 it鈥檚 too funny. One once even made a comment to my sister saying don鈥檛 forget I knew your husband before you, which was inappropriate in context but my sis let it go.
    This is funny I love that you guys are secure in your love and are having a good laugh over something that others wouldn鈥檛 be able to handle .

    MY FH dated my BFF/MOH in high school. So almost 20 years ago. I believe he took her to prom as well! I can't remember. We all just laugh about how funny it is that things ended up how they did all these years later.

    I didn't go to high school prom, but I went to one in college. I took a guy friend from summer camp. He went out with a girlfriend of mine at said camp, whom I ended up going to college with. When I went to her dorm room to tell her who my date was, she literally fell on the floor, laughing! The three of us had a great time together that weekend. She is now engaged to someone else. Both of them will be guests at my wedding!

    LMAO. We've invited 2 exes (one of mine and one of his). My MOH was married to a groomsman. And our officiant was married to one of my bridesmaids.

    I guess this is what happens when you've been friends with the same people since you were 15 years old haha. Smiley xd
