The Five Golden Rules Rule 4
The other side of the wedding planning can be the most difficult to control, and that’s the politics of it.
Overbearing parents and helpers can get caught up in rivalries and power games and, if left unattended, can result in threats of non-attendance or refusal to contribute further. Weddings are about building a
nd strengthening families, not about destroying them.
Employ these leadership strategies:
- If you have an overbearing helper, give them specific jobs. For example, give them the task of narrowing down the best caterer.
- Remind those concerned who’s wedding it is and relay your visions of what you want your wedding to be like. Be as diplomatic as you can.
- Always maintain an air of politeness and calm, but remain firm and assertive.
- As a last resort, be prepared to risk relationship status quo to keep control. it’s not nice to think strained relationships. could develop over what is supposed to be a joyous, but remember your priority now is to your life partner.
One of the true tests of your leadership is how you are going to manage the budget. Allowing other to decide who pays for what exposes you and your partner to a higher risk of deposited into your bank account upfront allows you to spend as you see fit, without seeking permission or worrying about unwanted interference.
This may not be necessary for your situation, and hopefully parents will support their children in any case.
You also remember that you need to book your venue, celebrant and photographers first. They are the first ones to be booked out.
