I haven't set a date yet but already I'm having issues with my folks. The background- mum and dad separated and divorced about 20 years ago, they both have new partners but my mum hasn't really moved on totally. Dad knows that mum can hold a grudge for Britain. He is concerned that as I am having a small wedding of 30 immediate family and very close friends there will be nowhere for him to hide from any funny looks or snide remarks.My mum hasn't said anything other than she'll have to travel to Scotland! Dad has said that even if mums on her very best behavior there will still be an atmosphere and I'd be looking over my shoulder all the time. Mr B has said he plans to speak to both of them before the event about their behavior. Last night he suggested that mum attends the ceremony in Scotland and then he attends the blessing in England. I want both my parents on my big day (albeit my second time around) because they are naturally a big part of my life.
On top of that mums not talking to my sister and hasn't for the past 5 years. I hope that every one will act like grown ups and enjoy mine and Mr B's day and for the following blessing/evening reception.
Families.....who'd have them. Any suggestions or counter arguments I can put to my Dad.
