Well, if they truly want to come to your wedding to support you, they have to behave like adults. They just can’t have it both ways. Are you close enough to call them out on this issue? If so, you just need to sit them down and ask them if they are capable of behaving themselves.

Sorry you have to deal with this.  It’s hard to say what is best without knowing your family.  Do you really think they would cause an issue being in the same room, especially 20 years later?  But if you do and it’s really your idea of hell to have them in the same room, I would consider eloping by yourselves or including parents and siblings only.

I would elope.  And if either side ask why, tell them.

Baal:  Ditto! Or plan a wedding and only invite your friends!

Seriously though, I know neither of those suggestions sound like a good option. I’m a firm believer in telling families that they can suck it up, come, and be NICE to each other….or not come at all. I would speak to both sides of the family and make it loud and clear that bad behavior or rudness at your wedding will not be tolorated and if they feel like they can’t abide by your wishes they will not be welcome to attend.
