5 Common Wedding Planning Fights

Planning a wedding is a lot of fun. But it’s also super stressful. Let’s face it – you’re only planning to get married once, and that means you want to get it right. Unfortunately, this stress can lead to arguments (and often does). This article will look at some of the most common wedding planning fights and how they can be avoided. 

Clashing over traditions 

As you start planning your wedding, you’ll notice how many traditions there are. Wear a veil or not? Get married in a church or a registry office? Take your partner’s name or keep your own? And everyone involved in the wedding will have their own opinion on each tradition. This can have a particular strain on the relationship between the bride and the mother of the bride. This is something that has to be managed throughout the wedding planning process. You may need to make compromises but remember that it’s your wedding and ultimately your decision. 

Money and budgets 

Arguments over the budget are very common. One person might think that you should spend all of your savings on the big day. The other might think that you should do it on the cheap. This is something that needs to be talked about way before you make any decisions. Ultimately, it’s not a good idea to overstretch yourself financially on a wedding. It’s important, but it’s not as important as having a rainy day fund and paying the bills. 

Your wedding clashes with a big game 

You might have booked your wedding day over a year in advance, but if it clashes with a big game, you’re going to have to have a difficult conversation with your partner or guests who may experaince FOMO. This is your choice at the end of the day. You can put a blanket ban on watching the game, or you can try to incorporate it into your big day. If you embrace it, you could even make it exciting by placing a few bets on the game.

Everyone keeps trying to plan your day for you

Everyone has an opinion when it comes to wedding planning. Your friends will have their idea of a dream wedding. Your parents will have their own ideas about keeping family traditions. You might even disagree with your partner about the big day. To avoid this, have a definitive idea of your dream wedding in mind and stick to it. Don’t let people sway you unless you don’t know what you want. 

Your in-laws are driving you crazy 

It can be difficult to get on with your in-laws at the best of times. Whether they’re overbearing or just plain rude, it can often be a tricky relationship. During wedding planning, it’s important to keep this relationship intact. Otherwise, you could end up with some awkward tension on the big day. Let them have their say but don’t change your plans just to appease them. Also, talk to your partner if they are really driving you crazy. They might be able to talk it out.
