I am a little confused about what you wrote but I think the jest of it was that
her family is
hassling her about her plans for the wedding and reception. I have (& still do
deal with a
difficult family -mine is the in-laws though) dealt with something similar.
First and for most
keep in mind that you want to CELEBRATE your marriage. To me that means having
around that want to celebrate with me and have a great time. A girl wanting her
natural just lay down the expectations about what you want for that day. Tell
the family you
are thrilled with the wedding and you hope that they are also, if they are not
don’t come. You don’t want this ruined for you as a couple or your child who
get to see mom
and dad getting married. Maybe mom just wants to feel included and does not. So
her in on something. Ask her opion (not that you have to do what she suggest,
after all it is
A girl only has one wedding, BUT a mother has only the weddings of her daughter!
she wants something she did not get at her wedding. Try to let mom be part of
it, if you try
and it does not work so be it. Maybe if mom is demanding to know where the
tell her your ideas and then ask if she had any ideas. Maybe mom is worried
reception place getting booked up. (Being a wedding photographer they do fill up
you can not wait till the last minute to get a good spot). Good luck and
remeber it is the day
for the bride and groom (but others are involved also).
