Are there any friends of yours that know your mom but aren’t in the wedding party? Or anyone friends parents her age she can sit with? Family friends? Just explain to her that you are sitting witht he wedding party and ask who she would feel comfortable sitting with.

What about the spouses of the wedding party?   You could put the photographer with her or family friends?

I’m in the same boat.  Difficult relationship w/my mom who has remarried to the guy she cheated on my dad with.  I dunno what to do with her either.  Reception we’re not doing a seating chart so I guess she can figure it out, lol.  Also, don’t you usually put your parents in the first row…just put them at opposite ends?

My Fiance and I have a similar issue. His parents divorced and his mom remarried quickly after. This was many years ago so my Fiance really grew up with his step-father and not so much his father. But when Fiance moved from florida to NY three years ago he lived with his father and rebuilt alot of that relationship. Since his father is coming without a date and his sister, FIs aunt is coming without her husband, medical reasons. I plan to sit them together and his mom and step-dad at another table.

I’m having trouble with my parents as well. My dad cheated on my mom and left 2 years ago, and I hate my mom’s new boyfriend. I have no idea what to do with them at the ceremony or the reception 🙁 I think they could be civil to each other if they sat in the same pew, I just don’t want their significant others anywhere near the wedding.
