Typical men!

Some men are so predicatable.  My ex is now using emotional blackmail on my son because when he says he isn't going to his house.    He sits there laughing as he is getting lectured by him on the phone. He needs to realise that my son sees through this completly.  He think's hes a jerk!

It’s YOUR Wedding: Dealing with Difficult People

Planning your wedding should be one of the most enjoyable times in your entire life. Often, however, the joy is replaced by frustration when difficult family members and friends make wedding planning more of a chore than a joy. Here are some tips for dealing with different types of difficult people.

The Know-it-All
This person has either been married or has helped to plan a wedding before. This, clearly, makes her an expert on all things wedding related so you should, naturally, defer to her on absolutely everything. Dealing with a know-it-all is tricky – especially if it someone close to you. Still, you owe it to yourself to stand up for what you want. It’s YOUR wedding!

Just tell her that you love her ideas and value her input, but that you have already made some different choices and you want to stick with those. If she pouts, let her. If you give in then you will end up paying for her idea of a perfect wedding instead of your idea of a perfect wedding.

The Complainer
This is bridesmaid or family member who finds fault with EVERYTHING. The shoes are too tight, it’s taking too long to fill out the invitations, she doesn’t like the hairstyle that you have selected and the list goes on and on.

The best way to deal with the complainer is to ignore the moaning. If they don’t get any attention, they will probably stop. If that doesn’t work, just tell them that you are sorry they feel that way and then try to divert their attention to something that they do like.

The Wounded Soul
This is the person who gets their feelings hurt every five minutes. They don’t understand why you sat them at a certain table or why they were not mentioned in your programs. They thought they should be the maid of honour instead of the person that you chose or maybe they just got their little feelings hurt because you didn’t consult them before finalizing the dinner menu.

What is certain is that dealing with wounded souls is exhausting. The best way to handle them is to first understand that you are not personally responsible for their happiness. When they are complaining just say, “Aw, sorry you feel that way” and then immediately move on. This way you are not ignoring them completely, but you also aren’t spending a lot of time licking their wounds.

The Bad Sport
This is often the person who thought they would be married before you, and doesn’t care to pretend that they are happy for you. This bitter person could be a blight to your big day, but don’t let them. If their comments become too much to bear, kindly pull them aside and tell them that if being at your wedding will be too painful that you would understand if they stay home. That will likely put a stop to the griping.

It’s YOUR wedding. Don’t let difficult people put a damper on your big day or the days leading up to it.
