My parents are taking over!”. Weddings bring delight and happiness and unbelievable joy… but sometimes the journey to the big day can be fraught with complication and negotiation. You won’t have realised how involved people want to be… which is fantastic if you want them to. Or maybe they will go the other way, and not give a jot about your plans!
