It is important to include the parents in the planning of you wedding as well. For some that may seem like a large headache but you have to remember they have likely been dreaming about this day too. We have all heard stories of some terrible suggestions made by the mother-in-law, however to ensure she still feels included ask for her assistance to come with you when choosing your dress, folding your invitations or tasting your cake. That way you actually have her help where you need it most and make her or other family members feel more involved. It is also a golden opportunity to spend time bonding with your new family.
