Are you struggling with a super-keen mother-in-law who really wants to help out with wedding planning? Well, first of all – lucky you! It’s fab to have some eager beavers who want to get involved in your big day. But, if you’re worrying about what you actually want to trust her with, here are our top five wedding planning tasks your MiL can totally handle (without things getting awkward)…

6 THINGS NOT TO SAY TO YOUR MOTHER IN LAW

1. Confetti
Does your MiL have a green-thumb? Ask her to dry out some rose petals from her garden and you have instant natural confetti for your big day. An absolute bargain for you and a show-stopping moment for her.

2. Cakes
Lucky enough to be marrying into a family of brilliant bakers? You could perhaps ask your mother-in-law to make your wedding cake. Make sure you check and double check she’s happy to do so, and come armed with lots of images and Pinspiration so she knows exactly what you’re after.

Feels a bit risky? Well, maybe opt for iced biscuits, pots of homemade jam or chutney for delightful family-made favours.
