- THE “IT IS NOT MY KIND OF TASTE” FRIEND
THE PROBLEM: As much as you love her, as many years you are friends, as much as you want it close to you during your wedding preparations, she is the one friend that will always find something negative to say for your choices. She is the one friend that when you show her the final choice of the wedding invitations, or the guest favors or even the wedding dress is going to be like… “Really nice!!! But…”.
OUR ADVICE: Take a deep breath. Don’t let anything and anyone ruin your mood and influence your sense of style. In cases like that you might have to kindly explain to her that your sense of style is different and you can’t agree on everything. Just stop inform her for every choice you make and let her discover everything on the wedding day!
- THE WEDDING KNOW-IT-ALL
THE PROBLEM: She is a friend, a cousin or even your sister that she has already gotten married and already has planned her wedding and of course she knows everything. She will guide you and advice you on every choice you will make… NOT! The only thing she will achieve is to make you nervous and misguide you from your original decisions.
OUR ADVICE: Just wonder? Who is getting married? You or her? Yes, we admit it… wedding planning is a very stressful period and during this process you need someone to guide you. That’s why wedding planner exist dear! Don’t let anyone tell you what is right and wrong. With the assistance of YOUR wedding professionals, YOU will plan the wedding YOU have dreamed and it will have YOUR own personal touch.
- THE OVER… HELPFUL GUEST
THE PROBLEM: She is a friend of your mom, or friend of your maid of honor, or your best man’s girlfriend and she is ready to help you and offer you the lowest budget ideas. “But I know photoshop and illustrator and I can make you the wedding invitations”, or “I am really good at slide shows and I will make one for your wedding day with your own pictures”! She desperately wants to be part of your wedding and she simply assumes she can!
OUR ADVICE: You just can’t avoid her. Her over willingness tires you, we know, but try to kindly tell her no and inform her that you have hired professional for all that stuff. If she doesn’t understand, then just ignore her!
- THE “I DON’T KNOW MY PART AT TE WEDDING” GUEST
THE PROBLEM: She is the friend or relative that doesn’t know where she belongs. She cannot understand that she is just a guest and nothing more. She over social and thinks that your wedding is a party that she can invite anyone she wants. She just informs you… “You have no idea who I run into last week! I told him to come to the wedding! I hope you don’t mind”.
OUR ADVICE: “Yes, I mind! And the problem is you!”. We give you a free pass in a case like that. Don’t be polite or nice! When someone involves in your wedding and start spending your money without your permission you can definitely be rude!
- THE “I CAN’T NOT BRING MY KIDS TO THE WEDDING” GUEST
THE PROBLEM: That’s it! She goes nowhere without her kids. And she keeps asking if she can bring them to your wedding, otherwise she won’t be able to attend.
OUR ADVICE: It sounds like a blackmailing. Don’t you think? If you have decided to have a kids free wedding (yes you can do that) just stick to your decision and kindly explain it to her. If she is a very important guest (for example your best friend, your first cousin, or your fiancé’s sister) you can offer to find the nanny that she’ll take care of the kids on that night or just make sure there is a special corner on your wedding just for kids with activities that will keep them busy!
