    @rom828 - I am divorced also. My kid didn't want to invite their dad's SO to the wedding and he wasn't too happy about it. I was concerned it would be awkward, but both of us walked her down the aisle, everyone was on their best behavior and everything went off without any drama. I did everything I could to be pleasant, which included keeping any negativity out whenever I had to interact with my ex because it was all about my D that weekend. I think if your ex were to come, mostly likely he will behave and be there for your daughter. I was very apprehensive before the wedding, so I know how you feel.

    Thank you @oldfort. I followed your story and all others where parents behaviors are uncertain. It’s my S who is getting married and is inviting his dad with few expectations. I can only hope that he comes and it’s a non event. I would have never guessed I’d have this concern. People do change.

    Wedding in less than a month. I am determined that our next phone call focuses on positive thoughts, other activities, and never even once brings up that recurring point of contention.

    Also, feeling like a failure for the lack of weight loss.

    Power cropper, I’m so happy all went even better than expected.

    I have no idea about the cake, other than to wrap it a few times and put in 2 freezer bags.

    @powercropper it sounds wonderful.

    We have the top layer of the cake in a Tupperware container in our freezer. I’m quite sure it’s going to be fine whenDD and SIL get here at the same time...in July...to have it. Ours is a square container...about 8x8 and about 6 inches high.

    Agree you need to wrap the cake tight and use bags. You don't want moisture to accumulate on the cake.
