Bigel-Casher: You have to accept the reality that your family is configured differently—that's just part of life. It would be great if everyone could play nice long enough to take one giant photo, but it probably won't happen on your wedding day.
Our plan of action: Don't force anyone to pose for a photograph when they clearly have no interest in doing so—you won't get happy smiles and you'll never want to display this doomsday moment. Instead, speak to your photographer ahead of time about the situation and work with him to arrange more congenial groupings.
