My very close friend, who I love dearly, really wants to plan my wedding. Like every time we start talking about weddings (or anything even remotely close to weddings) she brings up how she is going to plan it for me. Like every detail.
But the thing is, we have very different tastes. Like polar opposite. I’ve pretty much decided the basics of what I want. (I haven’t gone into full planning mode yet.) And I know, even though she has the best intentions, she will disregard the framework I have made and just do what she wants. I think she really just wants her boyfriend to commit and wants a wedding of her own, but because he just won’t and I am getting married she is using my wedding as like her wedding. If that makes any sense. Like, she is going to plan my wedding to be what she wants her wedding to be.
But other than the fact that we have polar opposite tastes when it comes to things like this, I haven’t once asked her to plan it for me. Let alone plan every detail without me approving.
I guess I’m just looking for suggestions on how to politely, without hurting her feelings, to tell her to back off. I want to plan it because it’s my wedding and I want to enjoy it.
