Divorced Family Wedding Advice

My Fiancee's biological mom left his dad when he was 5. He was raised by his step mother. His father and Step-mother are contributing the most money to our wedding. His biological mother is contributing, well, almost nothing.


When planning I've had a hard time trying to include his biological mother in the process. I dont know what to do. I like her, but she's not the most reliable person.


This is all creating extra stress on me trying to find places and actually trying to REMEMBER that she is a part of his family.


I guess we have to include her and her husband in our familiy portraits the day of the wedding?


What order do they sit/come in for the ceremony?


Do they (biological mother her husband) need to be announced in any way?


Any tips/suggestions?


Thanks!!

That can definitely be a tough one! What does your fiance say about all of this? It is his mom. Does he want to include her? I would say for pictures, you probably do want to take a couple formals with her and her husband. As for the other things, that's a bit tougher. I would say it's definitely up to you guys. But it can't hurt to be a better person and just include them as much as you can. At least announcing them, or acknowledging them in some way. It's not always easy, but I would say if it's not a lot of sweat off your back, it might just be the right thing to do. Good luck, let us know what you decide to do :)

I agree with Uhlease - it's a tough one but def talk to your FI about what he thinks and how much he wants to include her in on things. I don't think you should let it stress you out. Good luck :)

I'm gonna ditto these other ladies. I think it's really up to your FI since it's his mother. I'm sorry that it's creating stress for you!!
