Planning a wedding and keeping everyone happy...
When planning a wedding there are so many things to consider. What venue do you pick, what style of dress should you wear, and what décor looks best with your colors!? You shouldn't add to the stress by worrying about how to keep everyone in your family happy.
Don't get us wrong having opinions and experiences from others is a great thing to have, BUT you have to remember this is YOUR wedding day not theirs. At the end of the day you and your soon to be spouse are the ones who are going to be constantly reminiscing on your special day years from now. You don't want to look back and think, " I wish we would have," or worse "I wish we wouldn't have."

Now we have had many clients whos parents or grandparents are helping pay for the wedding, which can add an additional challenge with going against their opinions. But again you have to remember this is your day, and they love you! So if they want you to have a perfect day, you are going to have to speak your mind (politely) and do what is going to make you happy.
