Divorced Parents

Recommended Posts

I am looking for suggestions on how to handled divorced parents who can't stand each other in a destination wedding.  Our wedding is turning out to be about them and not about us.  At least one of them is very likely to walk out on us at the last minute due to inability to cope with the other one being there.  This is adding tremendous stress to both of us and is embarrassing for me as there is nothing of this sort in his family.  Anyone else has these issues and how did you deal or planning to deal with it?  Thanks in advance!

My parents are also divorced, and this is part of the reason we have chosen to have a destination wedding. My parents not exactly getting along with each other is something that has constantIy been in my thoughts when dreaming about my wedding, even as a child. I was hoping with the relaxed atmosphere everything will go smoothly, and both of my parents actually think a DW is a good idea.You may consider choosing a resort that is large enough that your mother and father can spend their days at opposite ends of the resort, or choosing a resort that has a sister resort next to it. I know the RIUs generally have a few resorts lumped together; your parents can stay at different sister resorts, then you or they, can choose to come and go to the sister resorts when you/they please, as you have access to them all. One of them could also plan on staying at a different resort entirely then get a day pass to be there for the wedding, and you could plan on getting together at some other point for an excursion or day out, to include them as much as possible. In the end, they should be there for you and understand that weddings are stressful enough without having to act as a mediator between your parents.

I wish you luck!!!

    • Hi there! I visited Now Amber PV in February for a wedding event for travel industry professionals. I stayed there for 4 days and they hosted us for several events and two dinners and everything was amazing. Their wedding department staff/team is incredible and the designs/decor were all crafted so beautifully!! There are several wonderful options to host events and I was so impressed by how they utilized and transformed each of the spaces. We had events in the lobby, which has the most beautiful view. On the beach, in the middle area terrace of the resort, and on the pool deck. The service was top notch and entertainment was fantastic. As a resort, it was a great place to spend a getaway. The resort staff is great, the food/drinks were all delicious and the overall vibe of the place is just perfect. Your daughter has picked a wonderful resort to host her wedding! If you have any more specific questions about Now Amber, feel free to ask here! Or shoot an email to info@wrighttravelagency.com -- this is the official travel agency of this forum and several members on our team have stayed at Now Amber and had couples book their wedding there 😊
