How to Avoid Family Conflict when Planning a Wedding

Planning a wedding is an exciting time for you and your partner. But it can also be stressful – some people find that families can all want to have a say on what they think is best and even though a lot of advice can be well meaning, it can put extra pressure on you when you are trying to organise your big day.

So how do you get around this without having a nervous breakdown or falling out with the family?

Try to be calm and talk to each other without it getting too heated – it can easily escalate, but a lot of disputes can be easily resolved with a calm conversation. It may be that they don’t realise how their input is affecting you and they think that they are helping, so try not to jump  straight into a row as it may be that it can easily be resolved.


If you have something in the plans that you really want – for example you have your heart set on a particular venue like this barn wedding venue Kent then why not put them in charge of something else such as the cake for example? This will help them to feel that they are involved and keep them from trying to have a say over everything.
