How to Manage Wedding Planning Conflict Between Family Members
Although a wedding is about two people getting married, it is usually very much a family affair – two families coming together and a lot of excitement can often lead to a lot of arguments and crossed wires! If you are planning a wedding and feeling the stress as family members get involved, offer you opinions and advice and generally overwhelm you, it is time to step back and take back control!
Most of the time, the reason that family can often feel as though they are taking over is because they are excited for you, want to help you and want to be involved. Unfortunately this can often be something that couples planning a wedding can feel is making their stress levels higher rather than lower!
Before things start to get heated, it is a really good idea to sit and have a chat with family and explain calmly how you are feeling – the chances are, they didn’t know and they thought they were being helpful.
Because family members like to be involved, take control and give them an area of the planning that they can take charge of – this means that you can deal with what you want to and they have their area to focus on – for example, if you have found a perfect venue like this Kent barn wedding venue https://theploughatleigh.com/barn-wedding-venue-kent/ why not get them to do the seating plans, or organise the entertainment?
