Family Feuds,Fighting and Drama Surrounding Your Wedding Day.

I have seen it over and over again, family drama surrounding a wedding. It can ruin what should be one of the happiest days of your life…

 Who pays for the wedding can have a lot to do with it. Often parents feel like they are spending all this money so they should be able to make the decisions.  But shouldn’t they be paying for it because they love you and want you to be happy?  They need to let this day be about your dream wedding not theirs.  Parents who are divorced need to put their fighting aside for one day and act like grownups. Their divorce drama should never be an issue at their  child’s wedding.  It’s not your kids fault you got divorced. Let the bride & groom decide who to invite, what is on the menu, what the bridal party will wear or what the wedding dress will look like. Step mothers, step fathers and mother-in-laws need to act like adults. Be generous, helpful and loving towards the bride & groom. Try to see things from their point of view. Don’t be pushy, demanding, jealous, or vocal about your unhappiness with the bride and grooms decisions regarding the wedding. Just be quiet and smile. Remember it is NOT about you. A wedding is not the time for family disputes. Decide how much you are willing to pay towards your child’s wedding then do it without strings attached or resentment. Step parents need to heed this advice the most. There is often a lot of resentment from step parents when they have to pay for their step child’s wedding. You need to stop and think about what you are doing. Your spouse loves their child; try to be supportive, helpful and happy. People will love you for it.
