wtf who invite their ex to the wedding. What has society become. My goodness. You should return the invitation, call and tell her that it's against the rule to invite exes to the wedding. That's what I'd do.

If I told her no in person I might reference that point if it was in the flow of conversation, but in writing you can see how that might come off rather poorly.

go, get drunk, bang a bridesmaid, fight the groom, and when they ask if anyone objects yell, "NO WAY SHE SHOULD BE WEARING WHITE"

or just don't go since it'll tear you up, make the guy feel awkward as hell, and can't imagine the chick's getting much out of it.

but if you go,
go hard.

Best not to go. Whether it was a token invite or not you'd fell uncomfortable as hell. Everyone that recognized you would say, "hey, didn't you used to date ___?" And they'd introduce you to everyone that didn't know you yet as the "guy who used to date ____." That would suck. Plus, you may have left over feelings, combined with some alcohol you might well do something you felt ashamed of the next day. Meanwhile, is there any upside? You're probably not going to get with any of the bridesmaids (even if they want you, as the ex of the bride you're "marked") and unless you're poor a night of free food and booze is severely overrated. Plus you're supposed to bring a gift for the couple, which pretty much negates the free food and booze.

Don't listen to anyone suggesting you show up at the wedding just to be an ass. Hopefully they're just joking, and if they aren't...anyway, just don't listen to that idea. If you do go, you should try and be a gentleman, well-behaved and blah-blah-blah.

But you probably shouldn't go.

I'd call two of the hottest prostitutes to escort me to the wedding reception... no need to attend the the actual wedding ceremony... just go to the party afterward with a hot chick and take full advantage of the free drinks and food.

don't stay too long.



and remember this... It won't be long til this couple goes through the same types of fights that you went through. Sure, maybe you wish them the best in life... but I know from experience that all marriages go through some serious problems... especially if they are rushed like this one.



And yea... the invitation was basically rubbing it in your face like Kobe4life suggested. Be sure o rub it in her face when they get divorced if you ever have the opportunity.

BTW... how long were you together for?

Anyways, that was months ago, she told me two weeks ago. I got a formal invite in the mail today. Im more then a bit shocked cause... well duh... but there was a hand written letter asking me if I would come from her. Seemed sincere.

...

I'm right for deciding not to go, right?

I wouldn't go. I'm not sure why she invited you, it's months, not years and it's awkward. If you want to do the socially "ok no one can say shit in any circumstance" thing send a small gift with the rejection. Me personally, i'd send a polite "i cannot attend", say i'm busy, and roll my eyes to myself why i was invited.

I can't imagine that happening to me. I'd get all depressed for a while.

I agree completely. I wouldn't go, that shit would be awkward. Maybe when they have speeches, you could get up drunk and say something like, "I'm only here to give you my doctor's bill for the herpes you gave me." Then vomit on the bride's mother.

I've experienced this and Fallguy's story. It's rough, obviously.

My ex was engaged seven months after our breakup and married 10 months after. I think it might last because she's a serious Christian and so was he, and Christians don't like to get divorced, right? Anyway, we talked on the phone frequently all the way up to the day she told me she was getting married - which came out of left field. That was the last time I ever talked to her. No invitation. Had there been one, I would not have attended.

As others have said, I'd respectfully decline in this case as well. I think that'd be the right thing to do.

I like Zombles and Senor Cedric's suggestions though.
