The wedding day is supposed to be the most special day for the bride and bridegroom and with good reason. It is the day the couple declare their love and commitment to each other and a lot of meticulous preparations go into the planning of this special day. That said, many people involved directly or indirectly may end up becoming the thorn in planning an otherwise picture perfect ceremony. Who would create such problems?
1. The future-in-laws
Some in-laws (mostly mothers) tend to want everything done their way and this may end up messing up the plans and preferences that the couple may have for their wedding day. Perhaps they want the decor to be done in a different that what the couple wants. That’s just one of the many areas that they may be having a differing opinion.
The solution to this would be to set the record straight in a polite manner. Make them understand what you are planning and why you want it as you do. This should always be done with the presence of your better half that way it sounds like it’s something that both of you have agreed on. They are likely to agree to your way of doing things if they feel like you are working as a team.
2. Service providers
4. The cute little children
Yes these adorable little beings can be a nuisance at times and for this reason many couples send out their wedding invitations requesting that children do not attend. That may sometimes not auger well with invited guests. The way to deal with this problem is to keep an open mind so to speak. Young children are easily distracted by something fun and hiring a bouncing castle and setting it up within the venue will effectively help a couple deal with this setback.
5. The over – zealous helper
Truth be told, you will need help to make your wedding day a success. However, some people get carried away. Some of which you may know well and some of whom you may not know too well. If as a couple you find that you have to deal with such a person, it is best that you let them know that you appreciate their help and at the same time let them know that all the planning is going on well and is without any hitches.
