Welcome back! Have been following your Russia trip on Instagram and just wow!
Verona & Lake Garda looks great, we were there in the summer and got some great pics of my son rocking out to a band in that same square
Since January arrived it has all suddenly felt very real for us too, and from a big lull there suddenly seems to be lots to get on with - if only my fiancé would take some tasks from me!
Cake looks fab, very professional, well done!
In terms of your parents, I get it as mine have been divorced since I was a toddler - they actually do get on OK, but if my stepmum is present my dad won't speak to my mum at all which can be super awkward, hence we aren't having a traditional top table layout.
I get your mum finds it upsetting but I assume it has been a little while now since they split up, so frankly she needs to (wo)man up for one day and put you first - the day isn't about them. Not sure why your aunties or grandparents would be crying or yelling but if it were my wedding they would be asked to leave if they couldn't behave themselves. Your dad is entitled to pursue his own happiness and you are entitled to a relationship with both parents without being made to feel awkward or guilty about it.
