Many couples are increasingly choosing weddings for two: without relatives, friends, and even without parents. Far from every mother and father can understand such a position, therefore quarrels and insults on their part are inevitable in this case. How not to spoil relations with parents and correctly say about a wedding for two, in our article.
Start from afar
You can start talking to your parents about your dream wedding even before the wedding preparations begin. Tell mom or dad how you see this day and what you want. But so far without loud statements about the wedding for two.
Find out what your parents think about the wedding
Maybe your parents always wanted to share your wedding day with you, sit with the family circle and have intimate conversations. Or maybe, on the contrary, they are interested to know your personal opinion about how to celebrate this holiday.
Tell the truth
When preparations for the wedding have already begun, your parents will probably want to know about the list of invitees. Don't lie and don't evade the answer. It is better to tell the truth at the very beginning than when your mother has already bought a dress. If your parents don't ask these questions, find the right moment and tell them yourself.
How not to offend
Try to explain that a wedding is a celebration, first of all, of the bride and groom. If you imagine this day together, this does not mean at all that you do not want to see your parents at the wedding or do not respect their wishes. Explain why and tell how you feel. Let them know that your parents are important to you.
Find a сompromise
IIf you have explained to your parents that a wedding for two is normal, and they are still offended, find a compromise. For example, you can choose another day to sit in the family circle or celebrate a wedding in an informal setting. This option may well suit everyone.
