I love the idea of having our parents/grandparents wedding day pictures up at the guest book table with a sign that reads “All Because Two People Fell In Love” my problem is my parents and a few grands are divorced/widowed and remarried. I would love to have pictures from all the weddings because each marriage has made me who I am in some way or another even if they aren’t biological. But I feel like I risk making people uncomfortable. Should I just go with biological family pictures or their most recent marriage picture or all of them?

@LovebirdsSC: From a family that has no divorces I’m not an expert on this, but I would think that if both divorced parties are amicable and both are going to be there, I wouldn’t think it’d be an issue. Especially if you include remarriages that had an affect on you (like your stepdad did a lot of the raising, too). I would do all the immediate relatives marriages (so parents, original and remarriages) and grandparents (same thing here).

I said other, because I think this is something you need to talk to your family about.
It’s a beautiful concept and I love the idea!
But you need to ask your parents and grandparents if they are comfortable with it. We might say it’s lovely, but your family may think it’s not so good, so I would go straight to them and ask their opinion. 🙂

Definitely. Sorry I guess I sort of assumed that would take place regardless.

I have spoke to my mom about this some. She loves the idea and is fine with her and my dad and her and my step-dad pictures. She says she’s ok with my dad and step-mom but I know it somewhat bothers her.
My family is awesome and will say its ok because it makes me happy, but I know deep down inside it slightly bothers her. I guess she’s to that point that she’s over my dad and is happy with her life with her now husband, but she doesn’t like seeing my dad happy with his now wife (who is about 10 years younger than her).
Thanks for the advice, I’m still waiting to hear opinions as I still have not made up my mind.
