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

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.
