Where do my divorced parents sit during the wedding ceremony?

Divorced Parents & Wedding Ceremony Seating

If your parents are divorced but get along well, both of them can sit in the front pew for the wedding ceremony seating, with any new partners in the pew behind them. If your parents don't get along well, then the mother (and her significant other) sit in the front pew.

That's great advice, but where does the father sit?

If the parents get along, there is no reason to stick the significant others in the row behind, they should all get a front row seat.

I agree with Joni--If they all get along, no need to alienate the SO's. Also, if parents don't get along then why put dad in back? Why not just make sure there are people sitting between them? Or better yet, tell them to act like adults for one day and suck it up. Just a thought...

So...How do you arrange seating when your dad has divorced your mom, divorced your stepmom (who is the mother of your little sister/flowergirl), and has been dating a woman that neither ex wife gets along with and is bringing her daughter? Where do you put the gf?
