- Wedding: June 2012
Fellow Bees –
I have such a drama I can’t even tell you. It’s all about the bridal party & the processional. I met with the planner last night and we went over the processional order for the wedding. It would go…
Grandma + Escort
Mother + Escort
Fiance + His mother & Uncle (in place of his father)
Maid of Honor
Father & Bride
Now! The issue is that Mother of the Bride and Father of the Bride are long divorced. Father of the bride remarried about a year a go and mother of the bride never remarried. FOB & his new wife HATE MOTB. Jealousy and spitefulness are reaccuring themes. So having MOTHER & FATHER escort me down the isle is not an option. I get along with step mother only recently and have been trying to extend an olive branch throughout the wedding process. I call to talk to her about planning so she feels involved, i’ve invited her to the bridal suite for hair & makeup, family photos etc. Even though I have tried to include her I have no plans to have her walk down the isle as part of the bridal party as I would only have her escorted by my father and I would like my father to walk me down the isle. Plus it has only been the past 6 months that we even speak really.
Now for the processional – MOTB would like for her escort down the isle to be her boyfriend of 10 years whom I knew while growing up. Great guy I would be OK with this, except my concern is that step mother will see MOTB boyfriend go down the isle and will be EXTREMELY UPSET.
Please help!!! What do I do?!?!
