Dealing with difficult relatives

Recommended Posts

Hi ladies! It sucks that people we want to have at our weddings won't be there. But, we (the couples getting married) have to remember, it's our day! We are marrying each other and a long as we are there together, anybody else is a bonus! I think this is part of having a destination wedding; it's very difficult to please everyone. We knew going into this that not everyone we wanted would be able to go and we both agreed that would be okay. I don't think I'll have a single person from my side there for different reasons. We are going to have a "celebration" when we get back so that those people can share with us. Make it about you two and don't let others ruin that! Best of luck!

hug2.gif Agreed! Sorry she made you cry! Have you let her know her comment hurt you? If you really didn't meant to upset you, then maybe she will apologize?

Hey Brides!

 

I'm getting married July 30th at GP Lady Hamilton and sad to say my Finace's family have been trouble since day one. 

 

One piece of advise is that do NOT under any circumstance lower your standards/change your plans for a bunch of whiners.  Close family and friends should support your dreams especially regarding the biggest day of your lives.

 

We have carried on with our plans, and when the whiner and complainers see you are not paying them any attention they will book and show up at your wedding.  I'm only a month away and still have people booking. (The same complainers and the lovely Fiance's mother who started a WWIII lol)

 

What I have learned from this whole experience is some relatives/friends are very difficult people to begin with and are looking for reasons to complain and ruin people's moods.

 

KEEP SMILING...  Don't let anyone dim your light or squash your wedding dreams.

I am so done with people to. I am inviting everyone I want to be there but if no one shows up I am okay with that too. I just want my parents and the groom there. At that point, I have all I need and more :)

haha that sounds like a plan. we do what we can but it is soooo difficult to please everyone. But we shouldn't have to be pleasing anyone but ourselves and the groom. Go figure.. -__-
