I was wanting to put wedding picture of my parents and grandparent out at the reception. My problem is my fiance has a different situation than I do. He has lost his dad several year ago in a car accident, his parents were divorced at the time and his mom was married to someone else (He is close to his step-dad). However his mom and step-dad have just recently gotten a divorce. My question is do I use only my family pictures, use one with his bio parents or none at all? Help!!!!

I would ask your Fiance what he wants, I mean it is his wedding too.

My family essentially has no divorce anywhere and DH’s family has no one that is still married :/ We used the one’s with his bio-parents. We asked them first and they were both comfortable with it.

do they have to be wedding pictures? maybe you could find some pictures of him with his mom, and then him with his dad? that way they are still showcased and it fills up room on the table.
i had done this for my wedding, luckily all our parents and grandparents are still married ( minus some grandparents who passed) but his mom’s parents didnt have a wedding picture of them so i just used a picture of them when they were younger.

I would ask him what he feels comfortable with. We are doing the same thing and with my Grandma on my Moms side I wasn’t sure which wedding to use, which not to use.. or if we should use both. I just asked my mom and she let me know which she wanted.
I would definately talk to your Fiance about it though and let him decide.

Maybe you could do pictures of his Mom alone in her wedding dress.

I wish I could have done this but we skipped displaying family wedding photos because my parents are divorced and my dad is remarried. I wouldnt have been comfortable with any wedding pictures – even if it was just a picture of my mom in her dress.

Thanks for all your suggestions. Me and my Fiance have talked abut this and he is kind of like not sure what to do either, he doesn’t want to upset his mom but also knows she would do any he wanted. We were wondering what other people would think about it. Thanks!!!
