I really love the photo tables that have been featured on the Hive with all of your relatives wedding pictures. It makes me really excited to sit down with my grandma and my SO’s grandma and look at all the old pictures. However, SOs parents are divorced. How would I handle that? Do I use his parents picture? Or just his mom and stepdads? Or none?

if i were doing a photo table, i’d maybe just do old-time photos of relatives, because most of my older relatives are all divorced anyways…

i loved this idea too, but i decided to skip it since fi’s parents are divorced. his mom remarried so i could have used that picture, but i would have felt bad leaving his dad out just because he hasn’t remarried. it just didn’t seem fair to me to have a picture of every family member except someone as important as fi’s dad.

I’m planning on having a table like that also. SO’s parents are divorced and if I can get Future Mother-In-Law to hand over a few pics… I’m using them. They are his parents… they were married … they are all adults. At the same time, my mom passed away and I have their wedding pics up in my house now, and will put them up at my wedding, and my dad will be bringing his g/f to the wedding, i’m sure.
I feel like , my SO came from that marriage, it happened, just by not putting up a pictures isn’t going to erase it.

We’re doing this also (vintage theme wedding) and have the same problem (FI’s parents are divorced). I’m using my parents cake-cutting photo and old photos of each of my grandparents (wasn’t able to locate any wedding photos of them). We’ll be doing FI’s grandma’s wedding photo and then I’m hoping to get graduation pictures of his parents to use since they’re divorced. I will also have an old baby picture of both of us (printed in black/white).

Here are a few I found:
Our very own Mrs. Peppermint: http://www.weddingbee.com/2007/11/27/family-wedding-photos-display/
And Mrs. Turtle: http://www.weddingbee.com/2010/09/21/so-happy-together-and-here-comes-the-bride/
I REALLY like Mrs. Turtles. Yea…SOs mom is remarried, but his mom is not. I think it might be a situational thing that I’d need to talk to SO about and see how he thinks his parents would feel about it.

@Miss Biner: I dont know about divorced…but my grandmother is remarried since my grandfather passed away. I was having a difficult time decidin if i should put both her wedding pics up….i thought it might be akward for her.
I did though.

@Baileyh: I didn’t think about that. My grandmother has been married twice (no divorces, but both husbands have since passed away). And she’s got another boyfriend now. I wonder how she would feel about that….especially since her current flame is her latest husbands nephew. Oh God, don’t judge. Yes, I’m from the south, but I promise the crazy is concentrated in just a few people.

@Miss Biner: Yeah not going to lie..my eyes did a little “buldge” when i read that 🙂
I did my both of my grandmas wedding pics and no one said anything…I would just ask her two and see what she says, then its “out of our hands”
Heres mine. My Bridesmaid or Best Man took this pic, so dont ming the quality. :p

@BBee: Thanks!! On the bottom of each pic is a tag thats says the name of the couple and their wedding date. The tress have leaves on them that are the seating chart and I asked once you took and leaf you replaced it with a “well wish” from that little glass jar in the front!
Oh..and as a joke there is a picture of my Darling Husband and I that we took at an old fashined store, dressed as a bride and groom (black and white) with our wedding date on the bottom 🙂
