I believe that I am crowding my daughter ever since I found out about the wedding.
But I want her to know that I love and care for her and want to help her with what ever she
needs. What is the right way to go about this? Thank you in advance for your help

I think that the most “annoying” thing that people did when I first started planning my wedding was to say, “you could do it this way”….or “you should do it that way” or “have you thought about doing it this way?” It was overwhelming having all these “ideas” thrown at me. I think the couple needs space to get a clear vision on what they want their wedding to be like before contemplating all the possible details.
I think you should just tell her how excited you are for the wedding and that you want to help in any way, she just needs to ask.

I would just ask her for her ideas and not state judgement or what you really want. The wedding is about her and her FI.
I’m so annoyed when people tell me how they would plan my wedding. How they wish I had fall colors. It makes me feel like my own ideas aren’t appreciated.

I think that if you tell her what you just told us, that will go a long way!
