Planning your own wedding can be exciting, but do not forget that it can add an element of frustration, especially when you find yourself in a catch-22 situation. Fortunately, we are here to bail you out of such awkward moments and give you hands-on advice, which you may find worldly wise or so we hope.
1. Not inviting all your friends to your wedding
Hey, you do not need to feel bad about not inviting all your friends on the most important day of your life. We know that it will be difficult for them to digest that they are not invited, especially when you were such good friends once, but that is not what you should focus on.
How to deal with it: First and foremost, assess your relationship with them. You will notice that once you do this exercise, you will in no time filter out the ones who are probably not so close to you. Some may carry the grudge in their hearts, but that will cool off in no time. Trust us on that.
2. A fall-out with your in-laws
This should by far be one of the trickiest situations you might find yourself in. The fall-out may happen if they are intrusive on your selection of the wedding venue, which may not match up to their taste, or your wedding outfit, which they want to have a final say in, or for that matter alcohol being served at the venue when you already know that it is going to be a big NO from your parents.
How to deal with it: Breathe in. Breathe out. Repeat. Do not sulk over it. Be open to discussions and consider including them when you go out to see the venue. Be open about the budget and let them know your limitations whatsoever. This will help them understand where you are coming from and you will see that they will recede a couple of steps. As far as your wedding outfit is concerned, it is your day, so make them realize that you are not going to make a clown of yourself and that they should trust your decision.
