It’s inevitable. Couples can annoy each other from time to time. And this can be especially true when it comes to wedding planning. Here are the top five ways brides can annoy their grooms—and how to avoid them.
1. Talking “wedding” 24/7. Of course, your wedding day is one of the most important days in your life, but that doesn’t mean you have to let it completely consume your life, day in and day out, between your engagement and the big day. Schedule some non-wedding time with your fiancé to keep some sense of sanity alive—for both of you.
2. Wavering on every single decision. When it comes to decision-making, most guys don’t like to mess around. If you waffle on every wedding related decision, he’s sure to get annoyed. And if you ask your groom for his opinion and still end up waffling, good luck. Instead, make an educated decision, based on both of your input, and stick to it. Then move on with the next item on your list. Otherwise, it will be tough to accomplish anything and you’ll end up stressing out yourself—and your groom.
3. Crying—over everything. Trust me, I get it. Weddings are emotional. But try not to get so caught up in the emotional rollercoaster that you burst into tears at the drop of a hat, say when your fiancé’s mom asks if she can invite her third cousin to the wedding or your maid of honor wants to wear a dress in your not-so-favorite color. Try handling everything in a calm, collected fashion, whenever possible, to prevent letting emotions cloud your judgment—and escalate into an unnecessary blow-out.
4. Insulting his mother. You and your future mother-in-law may not see eye-to-eye on everything, but that doesn’t mean he wants to hear about it each and every time an issue comes up between the two of you. After all, she’s his mother, and she can likely do no harm. Pick your battles here.
5. Acting helpless. Let’s face it. You’re perfectly capable of doing many, many things—without his help. While screaming and crying to get him to kill a spider may get some results, screaming and crying for his help with every detail of your wedding plans likely won’t. Instead, create a plan to split up the wedding planning duties between the two of you and then work on knocking them out—together.
