I got tons of that too.  Most of the time I was just able to say, “thank you for that, I will take that into consideration” .  Once, I kind of blew up.  I had a guy, who was not even invited to the wedding, tell me that my guys had to wear tuxes with vests, they just had to!  OMG!  Who made him the fashion police!?  I think that it just goes along with the territory and people really are trying to help.  Just keep telling yourself that and smile, nod, and thank them, then continue to do it your way.

It’s your day- people will always think they know better. Try and keep calm as hard as it can be – I find replying with a question always helps. For example ” why are the dresses that colour?” – response ” why do you ask?” ” because I think red would be better” -response- ” is red your favourite colour?” ” no I just think it would go better” – response ” oh in what way do you mean?, better with the theme?” – just turn the tables and exhaust their patience. They’ll get the message. Make them think you are taking their advice on board and then do exactly what you want anyway. They’ll give up on their suggestions before you know it.
