yeah, my dad is married and my mom isn’t anymore. I was thinking the same thing a few days ago. I don’t want my mom to be sad due to my wedding.

Both Darling Husband and I have the same situation with the dads remarried but the moms not.  Father-In-Law has been remarried 20 years.  It was a little awkward but not that big of a deal.  I actually think Mother-In-Law lost it a bit…she was wearing her wedding band the day of our wedding Undecided  Not sure what she was going for.

@clarebee- I don’t know why she wore it and it was on her ring finger.  I know she wasn’t happy with the wedding and no one thinks she is over the divorce (she’s still very bitter about it).  Maybe Mother-In-Law was trying to show off for Father-In-Law but she had a whole show going on.  I thought it was very weird to say the least.

Honestly, you can’t babysit her the entire day.  Will she not have other family to hang out with?

Awww, Bees.. This is hard. I’m in the same situation… And my mom is my best friend (and MOH!), so that makes it even worse. I feel terrible for her. My dad is happily married. Like you said, it’s not that I don’t want my step-mom there, it’s that I want it to be special for my mom.

Although, she does have a date this weekend I am super excited about! Everyone cross your fingers that it works out for her, she turned 45 last week and she deserves happiness more than anyone I know.

I’m in the same boat. My dad is married but my mom isn’t. She’s found herself a date though. My momma is one jazzy lady AND waaaaaay hotter than my stepmom. I think my dad kicks himself everytime he sees my mom.

My dad passed when I was 3 and my mom is single, well she is a cougar and dating a younger man but there is no way I could invite him because my older brother will beat his a** not caring if it will make my mom upset or ruin my wedding so I voided the thought of inviting her boyfriend.  On the other hand, my FI’s parents are divorced and cannot stand each other, his mom is single and coming alone and his dad is invited with his girlfriend he’s been seeing for a year, it will be quite uncomfortable for his parents because they havent seen each other in forever but fiance still wants to introduce them together at the reception

My parents divorced only a couple years ago. My mom has a boyfriend and my dad is remaining single (“3 strikes and you’re out,” he says). I’m worried about awkwardness for that and also because my half-siblings (from my mom’s first marriage) and my dad absolutely LOATHE each other. They rarely see each other, and yeah, they did all behave ok for college graduation, but you really can’t help but worry about it, can you? 😛

Ah well.

Good luck Tammyt12!  DH’s parents are the same way: hate each other and hadn’t seen each other in almost 6 years.  There was major drama surrounding the announcing so we dropped everyone but us.  Ditto clarebee…don’t let them spoil your day!!
