    If you do end up inviting her, put them on the table with people she would hate to be seated with, like the kids or oldies table. Free entertainment for the night.

    Ohhh good idea. Even better if he was a groomsman. I like that idea. Then give everyone popcorn bonboneire's.

    Default Re: Would you invite someone you don't like to your wedding to keep the peace?

    I recently got married and we had a situation like this. We decided that it was easier to not invite partners unless they were living together and in serious relationships. We had a small wedding (60ish people) so that made an easy excuse. Being the first of our friends to have a baby and get married, most of our friends weren't really in serious relationships and understood.

    If I were you, consider how good of a friend he is and if you're willing to lose that friendship by not inviting her. That will answer your question.

    Ahh no.No We are not inviting people to our wedding on 12.12.12 that we either A-Don't like or B-that don't like us/talk to us, Family or not. Neither my two sisters or brother have been invited and also aunt's and uncle's.My theory is if they can't discuss certain issue's with me and than ignore me for year's at a time they won't be invited.This isn't easy but it is a day about family and they have chosen who they want in their's so they can now deal with it!

    I agree with WineTime. I would probably invite her, otherwise the fall out will be the friendship ending. She will still ***** about you, but now she'll have everyone feeling sorry for her and you'll be the 'inconsiderate and childish' one.

    We went thru this when we got married. We hate one of our good friend's partner. She is a cow. But we still invited her. Thankfully she cracked the poos and didn't come

    Default Would you invite someone you don't like to your wedding to keep the peace?

    I was forced to invite someone to my wedding to keep the peace. In my case it was a relative. If I could go back in time I would have held my ground and not invited them no matter what issues it may have caused.

    She spent the entire ceremony with a horrible look on her face (including in family photos), tried to take control of my photographer and tell us what photos we should have taken. Then at the reception she spent the whole time trying to keep my new hubby away from me and tried to convince the groomsmen they should all leave and go home. To top it off, she made a big scene which ended in her being asked to leave. Not how I wanted to remember my wedding.

    Well to me you either need to invite both of them or neither of them.

    It's your day so do what feels right for you and that will make you and your DF have a good.

    When my DP and I get married I won't be inviting certain people since its their choice they no longer act like family so I won't be wasting our money inviting them just because.

    Weddings have number limits and you want those that actually respect you and your partners relationship that are actually genuinely happy seeing you getting married being there not 2 faced people.

    I would invite her. It would be different if you didn't want her partner there but I don't think it's really fair to invite someone but exclude their partner. You don't have to be best friends with her but I do think if he is your friend you need to tolerate her at least.
