3 Ways to Handle “Helpful Meddlers” During Your Wedding Planning

Planning a wedding is already daunting enough. You don’t need your mum trying to superimpose a certain number of guests. And you certainly don’t want your dad insisting on the type of drinks that should be made available for his old-time friends and colleagues.

It’s your day, and the last thing you need is a list of things you don’t know what to do with at your wedding because they’re things your parents or loved ones prefer.

Figuring out how to handle them alongside their preferences will save everyone the disappointments and hard feelings that may come with rejecting their choices.

To get you started, here is a list of ways to help control ‘helpful meddlers’ during your wedding planning.

●      Bring Them in On Your Budget

 People mostly tend to think for you when they’re not in your shoes; letting the meddlers know how much your account permits you to spend for your wedding is of high importance.

They should also help you in punching out numbers and making the calculations, unless, of course, they’re sponsoring the marriage or at least taking care of the more significant part of the budget.

It would help if you let them understand how important it is to have your way with your wedding plans.

●      Employ Transparency

Present in detail the cost of everything involved in planning your wedding. For instance, the amount you’ll be paying your vendors, the menus, flowers, the décor, etc.

 If they don’t know how much things cost, they won’t know when to set boundaries with their meddling.

●      Give Concessions on The Number Of Guests

 The person who has a say in the number of guests you’ll have at your wedding is the person who’s dipping a hand in their pocket.

 You’ll probably need to come to a compromise. Say your budget permits 200 guests, you; you’ll have 75 guests slot each for you and your partner. That leaves 25 each for both your parents. You can also divide the remaining number according to who’s contributing. 

Handling your loved one’s opinions about their preferences as they concern your wedding planning is essential for your event to run smoothly. It’s, however, vital that you know the necessary vendors to approach in transparency and compromise.
