I think it depends on your family and you. My mom has been super involved and supportive, but it’s also stressing my Fiance out (my Fiance hates shopping and trying on clothes with a passion and my mom has been adamant about shopping with my FI). We’ve had family members who want nothing to do with the wedding and have said some really insulting things. We’ve had family members say they’re 100% supportive and act that way. I’ve also done most of the planning so far with only my mom and my Fiance though. I haven’t really involved other family or anyone in the wedding party, and probably won’t for the most part except for wedding attire (which we’re paying for so they don’t get a say anyway). I figure we’re paying for the majority of it (with help from my mom and her husband), so if they want to be involved they can be. Otherwise we’re doing what we want with my mom’s input only for the most part since she’s footing half the bill.

I’m not sure if it has to do with getting everyone involved in your wedding, but as a late bride (in my 30s) and non-traditional (same-gender marriage), I guess I’m used to being open for other people to come to, but not involving them in my life.

Anyway, I guess what I’m saying is it’s your wedding, do what you want. If other people are giving you a hassle, remind them it’s your wedding and stop involving them if they can’t be supportive of YOUR wedding (and let them know that). 🙂
