Wow, what a storm!!! I have a big family miself but drama is rare, fortunatelly! Sorry, i don’t have a good advise..i would definetly step away from that big mess (meaning leaving your dad do whar he wants with his life), patch up with your grandmother and do what your heart tells you about your wedding…how about eloping or a small wedding with just your sisters and grandparents???

@MissThespian:  meet and talk with your sisters abut this I think. If you dont want your dad etc to be at your wedding it is your choice.

Wow. What a crazy.  When I found out my Dad was cheating on my mum I had the same reaction.  No way was this guy coming anywhere near my wedding.  He hurt me, my mum, and doesn’t believe in the sanctity of marriage.  BUT, I spoke to SO about it, and he said I’d (most likely) regret not having him there and not having him walk me down the aisle. Your wedding is still way way out, this is all too fresh at the moment I think.  Don’t make any rash decisions.  Definitely stick by your sisters, but family is still family and I think that in time this will blow over – here’s hoping.

Wow.  Well, frankly, this all sounds so ridiculous and immature that I’d probably tell them all to grow up and do my best to stay the hell away from the whole lot of them until they come to their senses.  If your wedding date is really in May 2014, you have over a year before you need to start making firm decisions about who will escort you down the aisle and who to invite.

Your father is at fault. If he invited them to meet his new gf, and not tell them to keep it secret, how were they expected to know to keep it secret? Yelling at N is immature.

That said, your sisters were silly to phone your grandmother. Your father’s love life – especially now he has long since divorced your mother – is not their business.

Your aunt and grandparents are acting immature too, apparently blaming you for your sisters’ indisgression.

So I see a lot of people in the wrong. I suggest talking to your dad, and giving everyone else time to get over it. For your wedding, assume things don’t improve, I would invite your father’s family and sit them all at the one table where they can ignore everyone else if they wish.
