My husbands parents HATE each other, they do not speak to each other at all and have been sore rates for almost 20 years now. I was worried about how they would deal at our wedding but in the end stopped worrying about it. If they wanted to act like children on our wedding day we were not going to let us affect us. we sat them at opposite sides of the room for the reception but other than that I have no idea what happened between them haha all I know is no one has said anything to us so they must have gone ok. You need to just not worry about it 🙂 enjoy your day!

rrweddingday15:  you cant control other peoples actions on your wedding day. maybe just appointment someone to keep an eye on them in case anyting blows up and they can escort them out, lol.

First off – I know how you feel!


My fiance’s parents are divorced and hate one another too. As for my family, there are various members who are on limited or are no speaking terms at all, including myself and my own dad. He threatned to not even come. My fiance and I are trying our best to coordinate tables where we know certain people will get along. We will also likely have no seating arrangement for the ceremony, in addition have plenty of “distractions” for people…. other rooms in the venue where people can hang out, or go outside, as well as maybe a game table or photobooth to distract people from one another. It’s too bad but unfortunately just because someone is an adult, doesn’t mean they act like one 100% of the time. 


I hope the best for you!

Oj so sorry to read this…i see lots of bees with not so much loving family. Im am not inviting my older sister or her husband (not speaking for years and not planning on, never met their child etc..)

My FI’s parents got divorced but not tha long ago.. He broke her heart, left, now living with his girlfriend for quite a while.. We have traditional seating at the wedding so they two have to sit togeter and girlfriend at another table which i sense will be drama… Not to mention mother and father talk together but its not like they are excited.. Just awkward..


i really hope your parents will keep it together, it is your day!!
