Wedding planning Nightmare & Solutions:
Mom or mother-in-law zillas: When your mom or mother in law to-be always has the final words, and she is the one who decides where to hold the wedding at, what to eat, who to invite, your wedding color scheme and much more … and here comes the worst, she joins most of your meetings with your vendors and make a lot of input of her own point of view.
Never disagrees with your momzillas, the situation might get worst! Nodded on her point of view to avoid direct conflict, but do what you believe is right. If you must compromise, go along with both points of view. For instance, she wants red for your wedding but you die for pink, go for red napkins and pink table linens or promise to offer a special red floral corsage for her.
Your “supportive” spouse
You did a lot ( and most) of the research for your wedding planning, when you are desperate for an opinion from your spouse to be, he answers blandly “whatever…you like”.
Before you melt down, remind yourself why you want to marry your spouse. There must be something that you admire him for. He may not be as keen as you’re in the wedding planning process, but find something that he is good at and let him take charge of it.
Going out of budget
You are completely out of the budget and your stress level reaches to its peak!
If you’re over your budget, write down and prioritize a list of wedding items. Start with items that are least important to you; in that way, it will be easier for you to decide which ones can be minimized.
As if you do not have enough pressure, your bridesmaid complaints about her dress or made unhelpful inputs about your wedding.
Ask your troublesome bridesmaid what would she have done if she were you, she might either not say a word in return or talk until she drops. If she does, let her go for it, after she’s all done, just add a line “ I’ll try to see what I can fix.” Sometimes it’s really just a good talk out that one needs.
The RSVP deadline had passed and there’re still a lot of unresponded guests.
It’s understandable and okay to send a friendly reminder in email/ text to those who have not responded yet. Sometimes, people are simply too busy and have forgotten about it, a reminder is always helpful for both ends.
