Don't you think after all Edward had done to keep Bella safe up to that point and how Bella told Jacob how good of a person Edward was, even in Eclispe after the fight, Jacob had wanted Edward to be upset with Bella and him. But when Bella told Jacob he wasn't, Jacob still thought Edward was playing a game with Bella and him. Edward held Bella ing his arms that night while she just cried and cried, wanting to take the pain away and if it meant being with Jacob, Edward would wanted that. BUT Jacob tells Bella that he will always be in the wings waiting and then even when her heart stops beating maybe. So this is what I base my feelings on that Jacob should not have come to the wedding because it wasn't just as a friend Eclispe chapter 26 it was a very emotional chapter for both Jacob and Bella and he wasn't over her and he never accept Edward and never gave him anything but bad mouthing because Jacob was fighting for Bella.
What I put in red is one of the key reasons I always thought that Edward was better for Bella. Yes, Jake was a great friend to Bella when the Cullen's left, but he never really accepted the fact that Bella's heart belonged to Edward. This was the thing I found that really defined how different the two guys were. Edward was all for her and what made her happy, even if it wasn't with him. With Jake it seemed to be what he wanted.
I do get why Jake wanted to be there on her wedding day, and that he had accepted that she would never be his, he didn't seem to accept or consider that she could or would want a "normal" honeymoon. I get his concern, but Jake fails to see that what Bella and Edward do behind closed doors is really none of his business.
I always found Jake to be a bit of a hypocrite because he always said he would never hurt her, and yet assumed the worst of Edward who had said the same thing. Yes, Edward leaving did hurt her emotionally, but Jake grabbing a hold of her and shaking her like he did made him lucky that they didn't press charges against him. He had been told to let go, but didn't until the members of the pack and Edward made their way over.
