Should You Invite Exes To Your Wedding As Prince William & Kate Middleton Are Doing?

Tue, April 12, 2011 11:45am EST by 3 Comments

Between them, William and Kate are inviting a staggering total of SIX exes to the Royal wedding. Are they nuts?

Every wedding should have something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue, right? Apparently Prince William and his bride-to-be, Kate Middleton, are taking this adage to heart and turning the ‘something’ into ‘someone’ old: the Royal couple have invited six of their former lovers to the wedding of the century! Is this weird or just posh and polite?

So who’s coming? Kate has invited her pre-William St. Andrews BF Rupert Finch as well as high school crush Willem Marx. As for William, he’s sent invites to a whopping FOUR former GFs including rumored first love Jecca Craig, first girlfriend Rose Farquhar, university ex Arabella Musgrave and, lastly, Isabella Anstruther-Gough-Galthorpe.

Kudos to the Royal couple for showing their exes some love, but really? REALLY? Unless you have kids with an ex-BF or husband and he’s an established part of your life, there’s really no need to air your past at your wedding day.

Here’s why I think so: your wedding is about your future and your commitment as a couple. Sure, the ghosts of girlfriends and boyfriends past might seem like a good idea, but why have your past hanging around on a day that’s all about moving forward and starting a new chapter in your life?

William and Kate are Brits, and she’s about to become, like him, royalty. Their lives may operate on a different scale than ours do. So should you invite an ex to your wedding, when that day comes? That’s up to you. But would I want to look into an ex boyfriend’s face right after saying ‘I do?’ I already know that answer: I don’t.

I wouldnt invite my ex either. Even if we get along well enough to go holidaing in kenya or klosters!

What I would do is soak the engagement ring in wine & salt for 7 hours to rid of the evil spell that spelt misery for Princess Diana from day one of her egagement, that which was given by Prince charles. Who knows it might even may have been designed and picked by Camilla for the occcasion for him.

So katy dear,if you dont want that filth to stick your marriage,wash it off!

I think that the couple should invite whoever they wish including exs as long as the other couple is ok with that. I invited my ex-boyfriend to my wedding with my husband blessing. He and my husband get along great and we had been broken up for eight years.
