What do you think a stepmother's role should be in the wedding of their step-son/daughter?

Those articles sound a little biased if you ask me. Honestly you have to be a little bit careful with some "Step" articles because I have found that many times biomoms with vendettas are writing them (sometimes not all the time).
I hope everything works out for you and your family has a wonderful blessed wedding day! :)

Parents of the groom host the rehersal dinner. The MOB AND FOB need to be gracious.

My daughter's wedding was planned and paid for by the groom's family. His father married them and he set the plan of seating for everyone on both sides of the aisle. And, her step mom and the two step brothers who were not in the wedding party were seated a couple rows back of the me, mother of the bride. My daughter's half sisters were the flower girls and the youngest step brother was a ring bearer. My son was an usher. Her father sat with his wife after he escorted her to the front to her husband. It all turned out quite nice. THe reception was a meal and cake. There were two tables set up for the bride's family, one for her father and step mom and the kids. The other table was set up for me and the rest of the family and her brother. My former mother in law sat with me as well. That went well out of ettiquette rules. But it was nice.

I guess both. I have just read a couple of online articles that a stepmother/stepfather should just take the backseat to the entire wedding and the mother and father of the bride/groom are the only ones that really should be apart of it... including seating during the ceremony... the articles state that the stepmother/stepfather should sit a few rows back without the birth mother/father... even if they are remarried, which to me is a little rude. Even though the stepmother/stepfather are not biological parents to the children, they should not asked to be sit separate and away from their spouse, I feel it is disrespectful. ALL parties should put whatever BS and hate aside for that one day for their children... I also agree that it is whatever the bride/groom would like... I just wanted some feedback

Whatever role your stepchild wants it to be.
I've seen the groom walk both his mom and then his stepmother up the aisle as part of the wedding.
Are you asking in regards to the actual wedding or the preparations?
