Stop thinking of it in terms of having to tell someone “I don’t like that”. Instead phrase it, “That’s a great idea but it’s not us”.

Really. You will never see these people again in your life. What do you care what they think of you? Right now , they probably think you are a namby pamby who doesn’t have an opinion on anything. I’m not suggesting you be rude or anything close to it. Just speak up and let them know where they are on track and where they need to re-route.

Time to take a deep breath and be a little more assertive if you want to have your wedding and not someone else’s.

This is not an etiquette issue- this is business and you are the client! They work for you and want to make you happy. Suck it up and stand tall! Let your voice be heard- there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. You will not be a “bridezilla”… bridezillas dont make threads sweating vendors feelings.

You dont have to be rude to get your point across. Without any direction from you, your planner can only guess, and pick what she likes.
