@Penelopeee:  Unless you really want to seat them separately, I would seat them all in the front row.

From the center aisle: Mom, her bf, Dad, his FI, stepDad

If they don’t get along and aren’t mature enough to be civil for one day:

Mom and bf

Dad and F

StepDad and some other guests he is close to

The parent who had a greater role in raising you gets dibs on the front row.  That is usually, but not always the mother.  If she is agreeable to anyone else sharing that row, that is fine, but it should be her decision.  If she doesnt want to share, I agree with putting father behind her, and stepdad with guests.
