Parents and Weddings - How to Deal

In the second episode of the One Fab Day Wedding Podcast, we delve into an area of wedding planning that can often be a source of stress and conflict - involving your parents in your wedding! There's no denying that we owe a lot to our parents, but sometimes their expectations for the big day simply don't align with ours. With that in mind, we decided to tackle some of the burning questions around parents and weddings, including "Should my parents be allowed to invite people to my wedding!?" and "How do I politely ask my in-laws to stop interfering?" We also discuss how accepting financial contributions from your parents can change the dynamic of your day. As you may have guessed, this episode is full of family #realtalk!
