I thought this might be helpful to newly engaged brides... the whole boundary issue comes up a lot on our boards.

Great article Francie!
I think that women can relate to their own white picket fence in many different ways as well. I'm not engaged but I am in a committed relationship with marriage in the future so I deal with FMIL issues, FSIL issues, my own family issues, etc. After reading your article, I realized that I may need to shut my gate more often rather than try to invite everyone through all the time. I feel taken advantage of & then stress about the drama of trying to please everyone. My BF is always reminding me that I need to make myself happy before others, which is great advice.
Anywho, nice article! Very insightful! Thank You!

Thank you so much for reading my article and especially for your feedback. Yes, you can definitely learn to shut that gate now before you walk down the aisle... it will save many future headaches in the future! It's a cool analogy for setting boundaries. Thanks again!

Great article and I love your analogy! Having too many opinions on a wedding is definitly a huge problem that I'm sure a lot of brides & grooms have to deal with. You explained a real good and easy way to deal with the problem, and most importantly you remind people that they don't need to cater to everyone elses opinions. I think that's probably what causes A LOT of stress while wedding planning!
