My FI wants to display a wedding picture of both his parents and mine at our wedding. Problem is my parents are divorced, so I feel displaying a picture of my divorced parents marriage would be tactless and sort of “bad luck”. What are your thoughts on this?

Daisymh: Are either parents remarried? Maybe you could do those pictures instead. If it were myself in that situation, I might consult with both parents to get their thoughts/feelings on this. I’d rather talk about it with them now than upset them on the day of your wedding.

Did either of your parents remarry? I would display those pictures instead. My parents would be a little upset with me if I displayed their picture (they are divorced too). They would much prefer the pictures be of them and their new spouses.

My daughter used her bridal shower to display photos of the mothers and 3 grandmothers (who attended), in their wedding gowns. Them, the ladies were very interested in seeing them and we avoided having to bring them back and forth to the wedding, since there was so much else going on.

I wouldn’t do it, seems awkward.

I think it will make things awkward, and will be even more awkward if your parents have new partners , or one has a partner and the other doesn’t. I would just not have either photos. You could have other family photos, but just not wedding photos.

Daisymh: I wanted to do this too, same situation (DH’s parents are divorced). Please just don’t do it. It’s a very unimportant detail.

Unless they’re remarried, I wouldn’t… awkward!

I wouldn’t. Not only is it a bit weird, but that might make your parents highly uncomfortable.

Instead, how about just having family pictures? Of each of the families growing up.. people will enjoy that and then it’s not so “marriage” centered or focused on your parents as much as your parents and you (and your family).
