As exciting as your big day is, planning it can often be stressful because of family drama. Cupid has some advice on ways to keep family drama out of your big day:
1. Plan smart: The most proactive way to eliminate any possible problems on your big day is to plan ahead. If Uncle Louie doesn’t like his ex wife, don’t have them sit near each other. While you can’t control who will sit near who during the ceremony, the reception is easily where you have more of a handle on what happens. Although it is your big day and you want to enjoy it the way you want, sometimes you have to bite the bullet and compromise on some things. It’s safe to say you rather get to have a wedding with family rather than a wedding turned WWE Smackdown match.
2. Set everyone straight: An aggressive yet proactive way to deal with family drama spilling onto your big day is to simply address it. Let your family know that you will not tolerate any issues on your big day. With emotions running high during a day like a wedding, it is important to speak to anybody who may pose a threat to your big day. Remember keep it short, sweet and respectful. Sometimes people need to be reminded that it’s YOUR day and not theirs.
