Justin Timberlake didn't want his wedding to become an 'N Sync reunion, which is why he didn't invite his former bandmates, according to Chris Kirkpatrick.

Former 'N Sync member Kirkpatrick was in Italy Oct. 19 when his former bandmate Timberlake married Jessica Biel. Timberlake purposefully left each of his former colleagues -- including Lance Bass, Joey Fatone and J.C. Chasez -- off the guest list.

"I wasn't invited to the wedding," Kirkpatrick recently told Orlando radio station XL1067, dispelling speculation that he attended the lavish service at the posh Borgo Egnazia resort.

Kirkpatrick saw Timberlake in Las Vegas at a charity golf tournament, but didn't ask about the wedding. "I didn't want to be like, 'Hey, I didn't get invited,'" Kirkpatrick said.

Instead, he and girlfriend Karly Skladany jetted off to the nearby island of Capri on their own posh Italian vacation -- planned a year in advance.

"I (planned) the trip last year," Kirkpatrick told Orlando, Fla., radio station XL1067, adding that he and his girlfriend -- to whom he proposed during their vacation --were "laughing" when it was reported he was in attendance at Timberlake's wedding.

So why did Timberlake blow off his old pals?

"From what I know, it's because (Justin) didn't want all of us there making it about a reunion rather than a wedding. It was her day. She's amazing, so we wanted to make sure it was about her," Kirkpatrick explained, referring to Biel, 30. (Chasez was back in the U.S. attending his own brother's nuptials.) When asked whether any of the former bandmates were invited, Kirkpatrick replied, "I don't think so."

A source told Us Weekly that no 'NSYNC music was played at the former boy bander's wedding, but Timberlake did dedicate a song to his bride. "Justin performed one song at the wedding," the insider revealed. "It's a new one that he hasn't released yet."

"Grown men were weeping. Hopefully it's because I didn't sound bad," Timberlake told Britain's Hello! magazine of the serenade, which took place as his bride walked down the aisle.
