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. I don’t know what to do with them on our wedding day. As selfish as it sounds, its my day and I don’t want them to ruin it for me. But then I guess I have to worry about both sides of his parent’s family cause I don’t know how well they’ll get along with each other either. What if they don’t get along? What if they ruin my big day? Any advise please!

Woa, hugs and calm down. BTW, most divorced parents do seperate parties. Doesnt mean they want to kill each other, just means they have moved on. My guess, his parents will spend the wedding pretending they dont see each other. Most important, make certain both parents understand how everything will work. As these are fiance’s parents, let him make decisions. Generally the first row is reserved for the parent who raised, him, generally his mom (but not always). If the mom is OK with dad sitting in her row, fine; if not, fiance’s dad can sit in row behind them. If mom is not remarried, have someone to escort her to her seat. If fiance’s SM had a significant role in raising him, she might get corsage in addition to the moms. At reception, have each set of parents host their own table. As for pictures, if he wants some with both his parents, he should explain to them. Each parent will likely want picture with B/G and their own spouse.
