Wedding Tips Tuesday - Family Drama? Twas Always Thus, You Know.

From the Ask Liz files. You're welcome!

Dear Liz: 
I've never had to deal with family drama in the past. My fiancé's family is full of family drama and I'm worried it might affect the wedding. I don't want any feelings hurt, but am not sure what to do about it. What am I entitled/able to do in this situation? It's been quite tricky.

Sucked from the Sidelines

Dear Sidelines,

Yeah, it's fun, isn't it? You can't change them, they've been that way for decades. Stay out of the way, and out of the line of fire - smile, shrug, and position yourself slightly behind your fiancé as much as possible. Seriously, for the most part, let your fiancé deal with them, he knows how. Decades, remember. As far as it affecting your wedding, just be clear about you and your fiancés plans, ask him to be clear about your plans, and proceed as though those plans are going to take place. Smile shrug, get out of the way and do your thing. I know, easier said than done. Hang in there.

See you at the end of the aisle,
