Well My parents are together, and FI’s parents are divorced (same circumstance, his dad is remarried, his mom is not).   We are seating my parents at a table with my grandparents….we’re seating his mother at a table with her parents and siblings, and then we’re seating the dad and wife at a table a bit further away (with his parents and his siblings).  Ugh…divorce sucks.

My parents table, and his mothers table are right next to the head table….but the dad’s isn’t so close.  (same deal, not much of a “dad” to FI)

Did you consider your Mom walking you down the aisle?

I “personally” would not give your father any kind of “Seat of honor”, like near the front. Seat your Mom where parents would normally sit, and have your “father” (who really isn’t one) sit “wherever”.

I feel badly for you. That is terrible, that he said that to you. I personally would not give him any special treatment regarding seating.

I agree with menobride.  I wouldn’t give him a seat of honor after he said that to you.  I would have your mom sit up front (be escorted by an usher maybe?).
