OOo wee! Mom is on double duty and is in full effect when it comes to including a healthy amount of suggestions about your wedding. How would you control the situation without piercing a dagger through her heart? Here are a few suggestions on how to keep a healthy balance of input from those who care a little too much.
- If you have a wedding planner, let her know. Chances are your wedding planner has experience when handling a situation such as this. Let her know how you’d like things to be handled and when he/she can interfere when things get a little rough.
- Try to get all of the important details squared away with your wedding vendors ahead of time. Once the contract has been signed and the down payment has been paid, you can pretty much consider it being done.
- It may be time to bring in those trusty bridesmaids of yours. After all, it is one of their duties. They can help you distract mother dearest and have her focus on the more important tasks that brides need to be done. We’ll let you figure that one out.
Well brides, those are our TOP 3 ways we think would help alleviate some of the pressure from mother dearest, but remember, your mother loves you and only wants what’s best for you and maybe what is perfect for her, isn’t always what’s perfect for you. Be patient by Petal Tribe, find common ground and find ways to incorporate her wishes. This day is much hers as it is yours.
