Do we have to invite a friend's new girlfriend?

by Linda
(NC)

We are getting married in six weeks. A couple we have known for several years recently went through a divorce and though things were amicable, he wanted the divorce while she did not. He has been dating a new woman, whom we have met twice at different social events but do not really know.


Are we required to invite the new girlfriend to come as our friend's date? The ex-wife is our predominant friend and as much as she puts on a brave face, I know it is very painful for her to watch her ex making out with another woman. (He really is inappropriate at times.) Is it required to allow any single adult guest to bring a date?

Thanks,
Linda

Inviting a friends girlfriend to wedding NEW
by: Help in Ohio

I believe it's most proper when your inviting anyone to anything, it's up to them to use good judgement on who they bring. It does say John Doe & "GUEST".
With that being said, people don't always use good judgement or taste when they go somewhere. A wedding is the last place an x should display the new man/woman. Especially when children will be attending the event as well.
A card thanking them for the invite with a gift should suffice and be appropriate.
There will be other occasions to attend with his girlfriend. Don't rain on the happy couples day, nor rub it in the x's face just to make yourself content in going to something fun!!!

Prom is a chance to reinvent ones self, scratching the image of the everyday you to

the new glammed up you. Us girls get into a different state of mind as we seek out to

find a design 2013 prom dresses gowns that will have us feeling pretty and perfect.

There's no limit to what you can wear and where you can take your style. With so many

discount prom dresses 2013 such as high low dresses (my personal favorite),

asymmetrical gowns, halters, and strapless your work is indeed cut out for you.
If you are fair skinned, then choose colors that will lend natural color to your skin

tone and give you that ethereal glow that is so very beautiful for fair complexions.

Your choice of fetching prom gowns 2013 should be in colors that compliment your skin,

if you have light colored hair; look for sea foam green, pale rose, creamy peach,

begonia pink, and other soft pastels. For young ladies with fair complexions and dark

hair then looking at color choices for 2013 prom dresses gowns should be in colors of

deep purple, emerald greens, deep reds, and other jewel tones, set off by the darker

hair, your fair complexion will glow in these deeper colors.
A feeling of being dressed in an adult gown is one of the reasons strapless evening

dresses are so popular. The strapless bodice works well as the topping of en elegant,

ethereal ball gown, or the sexy and sassy playful adventurer wearing one of the newest

trends, the mini discount prom dresses. We carry a much wider selection of this year's

hottest trends in fetching prom gowns, than the local boutique can have in stock.

I DOn't think so NEW
by: Meredith

Hello Linda,

No, you are not required to invite your friend's new girlfriend or to give him a plus one. However, consistancy should be the rule here. If every guest is given a plus one it would be rude to disclude him. Generally everyone in a group is given a privilage, such as the bridal party all given plus ones but not other guests. My advice would be to give select people the privilage of a plus one, and that he not be one of them.

I hope you have a beautiful wedding and a happy marriage.

Sincerly,

Meredith

"And Guest" not a requirement of etiquette

It's perfectly all right to invite single people to your wedding without an "and guest."

Perfectly alright for him to come alone
by: Eunice

If your friend (the ex-husband) displays such poor manners towards his hurting ex-wife, I'd rather suggest you disallow him to bring his new beau.

However, it is your choice. You are not wrong to invite him only. It is your wedding afterall.
