We are having a formal traditional wedding, which I have found out is a foreign concept to FI's family.
After all this time, FI decides to tell me this weekend that it **not** a good idea to seat his divorced parents in the same row. Nor can we seat his step-brother's wife near his step-mom! ARGH!!!!!
His dad is his BM, so that's not an issue, but how do I seat this:
his mom & her sig. other & full sister, nephew and his grandmother & step grandfather
his stepmom, 5 yr old half brother, grandmother, his step-brother is a GM, and his step-brothers wife (who doesn't get along with his step-mom, persoanlly she's a childish kid who needs set straight)
Sad to say, but step-mom has been more of a mother to FI than his own. His mom has been very selfish over the years and has battled her own problems, that include drug abuse.
We (I) are trying to walk a fine line here and not hurt anyone's feelings. We are having the traditional Bride's side & Groom's side. I'm open to suggestions, since I am brain dead on how to set this up without it looking too weird with the chair layout.
Lord can I say I'm sooo glad my family is not this disfunctional.
