The idea of inviting exes to a wedding might be crazy, but a lot of people were brave enough to do it. You can also do the same if you think it's the right thing. Before you do so, you have to ask yourself why it's important. You also need to ask your partner if it's okay. It's a sensitive matter, and you don't want the wedding to get ruined because of your decision.
Show that you have moved on
You can safely say that you already moved on if you can invite your ex to your wedding. If you know in your heart that you are yet to recover from your breakup, you shouldn’t invite that person. Better yet, call off the wedding. You can’t pursue something you’re not yet sure of. Unless you can be honest with yourself in saying that you already moved on, you shouldn’t get married.
Your partner approves of it
Some people are confident in themselves. They also trust their partners. If you ask your partner and the response is yes, it's a good thing. It means that your partner knows you already made a choice. The presence of your ex at the wedding doesn't matter anymore. You would rather settle this issue now before getting married, so it won't keep coming back later.
You’re friends with your ex
Some people don't only move on from their exes; they also manage to stay as friends. If you made a good relationship with your ex as friends after breaking up, you have to invite that person to your wedding. All your friends will be there. You can't look for any excuse not to have your ex, who is already close to you as a friend.
Take the safe route
Your wedding is a special day between you and your partner. You’re making commitments with each other. You’re also letting everyone know about it. The wedding isn’t the right time to talk about exes or deal with them. Besides, you already have a lot on your plate. You don’t want to further burden yourself by thinking about whether or not your ex needs to be at the wedding. You can’t stress yourself anymore since planning the wedding details might already physically and emotionally consume you.
Look forward to a future
You get married because you want to open a new chapter in your life. It means you’re burying the dark chapters of your past. It includes your ex who broke your heart for whatever reason. You get married because you want a life with the person you chose. You have a lot to look forward to. Focus on how you can strengthen your marriage and build a family.
Whether your exes come or not, it doesn’t matter. It’s not an issue because you already chose someone to spent the rest of your life with. Don’t forget to hire a top wedding photographer to document the special moment in your life so you will have a lot to look back on years after your big day.
