Elizabeth is getting married tomorrow (ack! now that I look at the clock, actually later today )! Her biological dad has not been a part of her life by her choice for 15+ years. Mary (Elizabeth's mom) and Jerry have been living together for 9+ years. Elizabeth's son, her niece and her nephew all call Jerry "Grandpa". Mary and Jerry have no plans to ever get married, so he is not and probably won't ever be a legal "step-dad". Mary had a meltdown at the rehearsal when I showed her the proof of the program. (Don't ask why they aren't printed yet... LONG story:grumpy: ). Mary doesn't want her to have "Parents of the Bride". She wants the program to say "Mother of the Bride" and leave Jerry off because Jerry isn't (in Mary's words), "Elizabeth's real parent. He isn't a dad or step-dad, he is my boyfriend and that's it". Elizabeth wants to honor the relationship she and the rest of the family have with Jerry, but also doesn't want to deal with drama-queen mom having another meltdown at the wedding. I need suggestions QUICK of what else we could call Jerry in the program. (Elizabeth's brother with whom she is very close is walking her down the aisle and very appropriately so if you know the background they had with biological idiot-dad. ) My creativity brain cell is not functioning, but I need to get these done and uploaded to Kinko's to print (gotta love that feature) in time for the 6:30p wedding. I'm gonna go sleep :indif: and see if I can be creative in a few hours. But any suggestions would be appreciated!
