Whether you are planning a wedding yourself or with the help of a wedding coordinator and you feel that you have prepared everything perfectly, it may happen that some issues which will not go exactly as planned. Always take this alternative on your mind and do not let them spoil your dream day. Nothing is more important than your love and the little problems always have a solution. Let’s have a look at what can happen to you on during your wedding day and how to fight with it.
Chapter One: Mothers
Mothers are the main enemy of the bride. Everyone knows best how their child’s wedding should look like without noticing that their child is no longer a child, and the wedding is a proof of that. Mothers will very cautiously suggest a date with various reasons for example “your grandfather was born that day”, “date will be well remembered,” “I will just have after the surgery.” One hour after the date is set mother´s proposal for a wedding guest list will arrive by an e-mail and she will not be reluctant to prepare a seating plan. Even if you disable them – „them“ because not only bride´s mother, but also the groom´s mother will start sowing information to help you with the preparations. They are willing to produce invitations by hand, bake sweets, prepare floral decorations … basically they will want to do anything and to contribute their advice however you do not want to. Think of a strategy to get rid of the mothers, but not to insult them so much they do not want to arrive on your wedding day. I advise to my brides to come up with banal tasks for the mothers as were allocated to the groom, without any power to decide. In some cases, the groom can even decide independently. For example, about his bachelor party, after his plan goes through the censorship of the bride. If you do not intent any banal role, ask her to help own husband with the speech, because a dad will have to show publicly as a speaker in front of a large audience. For some, it’s a stressful experience for a rest of the life. But more about this topic later in the chapter of the speeches. Definitely consult with your mother her wedding dress. It’s more than practical advice. Just keep your mother as far apart as possible until your wedding day, then they become harmless and most of the time they will cry. Please, never forget to thank your mom in a right time in front of all the guests, otherwise there will be endless hell in every face-to-face encounter, when she will blame you for the rest of your life. I have met a bunch of moms who received the invitation with humility and enjoyed the mere fact that their children wanted them at their own wedding, without the necessity of self-realization in this event.
