- Wedding: August 2013
So my FH and I both come from split homes. My parents divorced more than a decade ago and his parents separated around the same time, but never officially got divorced. It should probably be noted that Future In-Laws actually get along really well at this point. BUT they did make a point to have their names separate (Mr. so-and-so and Ms. so-and-so) on the invites.
Here’s my question: I’ve seen templates for the wedding party introductions at the reception that list the Future In-Laws getting introduced (first groom’s side, and then bride’s) before then introducing the flower girl, bridesmaids, and finally bride and groom. I feel it’s going to be extremely awkward especially for my parents as they have absolutely NO relationship anymore. Both have moved on, live in different towns and ONLY see each other when one of my siblings has something going on. I’m sure my FH’s folks wouldn’t mind as much since they get along rather well now, as I said earlier. But I’m certain we either introduce BOTH sets of parents or NONE.
What’s the easiest way to get around this awkwardness?
