These People Will Be Emotionally Affected by Your Wedding

Yes, a wedding is about you and your partner-but as one of life's biggest moments, it's also one of the greatest indicators of change, not just for you, but for various loved ones too.

We consulted Dr. Jane Greer, New York-based relationship expert and author of What About Me? Stop Selfishness From Ruining Your Relationship to discuss the five groups of people that might be as emotionally invested in your wedding as you are-so if there are any random tears, outbursts or reminiscing sessions, now you'll know why.

Your Parents Your wedding likely means a lot to your parents.

His Parents Your partner's parents probably feel the same way about their son or daughter as yours do about you.

Whether you're faced with an opinionated mother-in-law who offers her unsolicited advice or the father who gives you the cold shoulder, it's important to consider their feelings Give them the same courtesy you did your parents-take a couple of steps back and try to gain some new perspective.

Grandparents have often gone through a lot to see their children and grandchildren get where they are today, so your happiness means everything to them, and they love to see you smile.

Don't forget to give them a little extra love and attention throughout planning and on your wedding day.

Children Bringing kids into a marriage can create an entirely new vibe-your child might not feel like the most important person in your life anymore.

"Kids can both be excited at the prospect of their parents getting married, as well as jealous and/or resentful of their new parent-to-be," says Dr. Greer.

This marriage means a new person permanently in their lives, and while kids seem surprisingly resilient, they need time to adjust just like we do.

Here are some great ways to make your children feel included in the wedding day.

Even if you have one sibling or seven, a wedding can feel like they're losing a member of the pack.

"Wedding planning affects your siblings because they can start to feel competitive with one another," says Dr. Greer.
