My parents are divorced. My mom was remarried, and recently became a widow after 15 months of marriage.. so she is still in mourning a bit, and depressed obviously. My dad remarried right after my mom and got a divorce, and is not dating a woman, M who he lives with. Granted I like M- but when talking to my DJ he put when we announce the parents and bridal party, M walks in with my dad.
I get it, they are a serious couple- but she isn’t my family. Also if step dad was alive I would feel more comfortable with it, but my mom has to walk in alone. Its bad enough she has noone to go to the wedding with- but I think that would add insult to injury. FH thinks its rude to not have M be announced- but I think its hard for him to understand since his parents have been married for 36 years, after a 2 week engagement (talk about being in love.)
what are your thoughts? Should I talk to my dad or mom about this, or just make my own choice? thanks!

I would talk to your Mom about this. I think she will be able to tell you what she wants to do!

Talk to your mom AND your dad. If your parents are civil enough, can they be introduced together? If not, I dont blame you, Id likely do just my dad as well…

Do your parents have any siblings? Or do you? Maybe an aunt, uncle, brother or sister could escort each parent?

My only brother is a groomsmen so hes walking in with a bridesmaid.
My parents are friendly, were married for almost 20 years. Im not close with any of my aunts and uncles so that wont work. Any my grandmother the only person my mom will be going with is being introduced her table like FHs grandparents.

At my BIL’s wedding they announced his Mom and Dad together even though they are divorced and she is remarried. We will be doing the same because my FI does not want his dad to walk alone. If they are civil enough, they can do that.

Yeah I think Im going to do that. M’s feelings might be hurt- but she has to really understand. they’ve been dating maybe a little over a year… and live together, but they aren’t married. Its not like Im having my bridesmaids that are married walking in with their spouses.
Its just a tough call sometimes.
