Like many families, sadly mine and Ian's both have their complications. My parents divorced with I was 7/8, and my Dad has subsequently come out of the closet, and Ian's parents divorced about 5 years ago.\n\nI'm really lucky because my Mum and Dad always made an effort to get on, and they are good friends. My Mum remarried after the divorce, and my step-dad has been a real father figure to my brother and me. So no troubles on that front, just lots of parents.\n\nOn Ian's side, his Mum has remarried, but his Dad is still a bit heart broken. Whilst they can get on if required, I wouldn't want to put Ian's Dad in that situation.\n\nMy Dad being gay is not a problem for anyone except my grandparents (ie his parents) who get on fine with him as long as he pretends he is straight.Obviously they know the truth, but want to live in denial. I am really close to them, but cannot get my head round their attitude in this respect.\n\nSoooo all in all this gives us a real headache with the seating plan!!\n\nWe can't do a normal top table, so have narrowed it down to two choices:\n\n1. Ian and I have a sweetheart table (ie just us two) :o \n2. We have a table with the best man, his girlfriend, the bridesmaids and their partners, and friends.\n\nEither way it would mean that our parents can sit with their respective partners, on separate strategically placed tables :lol:\n\nI'd really like to go for the first option as it would give us some time to ourselves, but Ian's not so keen. Is anyone else in this kind of situation? If so what are you planning?
