Wedding Invitations: What to Do When Inviting Divorced Parents to the Wedding

A mother-of-the-bride is offended to learn her daughter invited her ex-husband — without consulting her

(page 2 of 2)

The Wedding Guru says: I understand your distress and disappointment with your daughter’s actions. She certainly should have consulted you before she made that call. Because there’s no way to turn back the clock, I suggest that you take the high ground and tell her that, since it is her wedding, you’ll honor her decision to invite her father — despite the fact that you feel she owed it to you to consult with you first.

If you wish, you can tell your daughter that she needs to ask her father to pay his own way — but before you do that, think whether it is worth it to you to create bad feelings over paying for one more guest. If you work this unpleasant situation to your advantage, you’ll come out looking really good to your daughter.
