Sean Lowe Emily Maynard

Now that Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici have officially set a wedding date, odds are good that everyone who's anyone in Bachelor nation is going to be in attendance. Duh. Former stars of the show are in their own little exclusive club or something, so it only seems fitting for most of the crew to be there to see Sean and Catherine tie the knot.

And you'd think since Sean's ex, Lesley Murphy, is going to be one of Catherine's bridesmaids -- he shouldn't have any qualms about inviting other women he's swapped spit with either. I mean, he chose Catherine, so it's not like she has to worry about him getting cold feet at the last minute and riding off into the sunset with some girl he already dumped once.

But if Sean is so head-over-heels for Catherine, why in the heck isn't Emily Maynard getting a wedding invitation in the mail?!?

Sean's already made it pretty clear that he has no intention of inviting her, because he doesn't think it would be "appropriate." (Ok. But having Lesley there is totally cool, even though they played tonsil hockey way more than he and Emily did. WTF?)

If I didn't know any better, I'd say it's because Emily is the one who kicked Sean to the curb -- not the other way around. And even though he's moved on and is set to marry another woman, it still might sting a bit for him to see Em on the guest list. It might bring back old feelings or remind him that she chose another dude to give her final rose to.

It just doesn't make sense that he's ok having one ex in attendance but not another, which makes me wonder whether or not he's fully over Emily.

Or wait a second -- maybe he's not the problem at all. Maybe Catherine is worried about him having second thoughts after being face-to-face with the woman who broke his heart again? That would make sense. Um, have you seen Emily?!? She's a little bit on the gorgeous side, in case you hadn't noticed. I can see where it would be a bit intimidating to pass her while walking down the aisle to marry a man who had it pretty bad for her at one point in time.

Something's a little fishy here, alright -- but something tells me Emily probably couldn't care less whether or not she makes the guest list. She certainly has better things to do than watch Sean get hitched -- though she will miss a pretty good party if she isn't there. Oh come on, that's pretty much the only reason to attend an ex-boyfriend's wedding, right? For the awesome food, free booze, and dancing the night away with a bunch of hot, eligible men?

Hmm. On second thought, if Emily doesn't get invited, maybe she should just crash this little shin-dig. (I would.)

Have you ever attended an ex-boyfriend's wedding, or did you have an ex in attendance at yours? Was it awkward?
