What are the odds that Rory McIlroy's former girlfriend Holly Sweeney will be invited to his wedding to Caroline Wozniacki? Yes, apparently such a bet can be made, according to BettingPro.com.

Paddy Power, an Irish bookmaker, is offering 7/4 odds that Sweeney will be on the guest list, BettingPro.com reported. The couple announced their engagement on New Year's Eve.

Wagers can be made on virtually every aspect of their wedding, including whether Nike will design Wozniacki's wedding dress (500/1 that she will). The favorite is Monique Lhullier (5/1). Don't bet on Nike; Wozniacki has a contract with adidas. The odds are 100/1 that Stella McCartney for adidas will be the designer.

The favorite in which country the wedding will be held is Denmark (5/6 odds), Wozniacki's native country. Odds that they'll sell their wedding photos to Hello magazine are 10/1. Odds are 5/1 that the wedding will feature "a...guard of honour to be formed with golf clubs and tennis racquets."
