Where are you planning on seating him and with whom? Also, do you have a father who will be present who has a significant other as well? It wouldn’t be fair to offer one parent a seat for their SO and not the other.

I wonder if it may be better just for you and your FI to sit with your bridal party and the have your parents and aunt&uncle with other relatives at a table next to you.

stick to your guns it’s your wedding, it’s just one hour

 

she’ll just have to deal with it, bummer yes, but do you really need to stress on your wedding day of you have negative energy at your table

good luck!

 

I’m the same my FFIL invited his girlfriend, they would have had to fly all the way from England; she’s a debbie downer and after dealing with her I really didn’t want her coming especially if my FI never liked her either; luckily because she’s so picky about food and can’t smoke on a  7 hour flight  she’s not coming; even my FFIl is happy she’s not coming (wow!)

 

it’ll all work out, follow your heart

I’m a believer that people should be seated with their guests.  Even aside from that, I think you should let your mom’s boyfriend sit with you at the head table.  Yes, fine, it’s just one hour that they’d have to be separated *technically*.  But think about it- are you going to give your mom a seat at his table and the head table, so they can sit together later?  When you’re mingling, a lot of your guests will remain at their tables.  Also, and I realize you don’t like him, but it’s kind of a slap in the face to your mom to exclude her boyfriend.  By excluding him, you’re telling him and your mom that you reject him, and I think you should be more considerate of your mother’s feelings.  Look at it this way- it’s just ONE hour that you have to sit with him.

I know you have already made your decision, but let me ask you this question, Do you hate him more or love your mom more?  What emotion is stronger?
