My boyfriend and I have talked about getting married, shopped for rings and he even bought a house for the both of us calling it “our” house. His parents are divorced and act like Tom and Jerry or the Roadrunner and Coytoe ugly…they do not get along. They still have to have two birthday parties for my boyfriend, his brother and the nephew because his parents can’t get along with each other. I’m worried about our wedding day. What if they don’t get along? What if they ruin my big day? Any advise please?

- Wedding: February 2013 - Mansion House at the MD Zoo
I’ve posted about this before, but we had a very similar situation, with the addition of a step-father who got in on the fun. He and I both spoke with each parent separately a week or two before the wedding and made it very clear that they are all important to us, we love each one, and we will not tolerate anything happening that would take away from our happiness on that day. We also gave the groomsmen a head’s up that if anything went down they were to let us know and someone might be asked to leave. We also told the photographer and venue coordinator the same thing so there wouldn’t be any awkward family photos requested. Mother-In-Law and SFIL hosted a table and Father-In-Law sat with my parents at their table and on that side of the aisle. It all worked out fine, everyone behaved themselves and stayed apart as much as possible. Also I am pretty sure Mother-In-Law slipped SFIL a xanax but hey, whatever works…..
