I’m working mostly with my planner to hash out the details, and I worry that my mom, future MIL and bridesmaids might feel left out. What are some ways I can involve them in the process so they feel included?

Even though you’re working with your planner or venue coordinator, you can look to your mother, future mother-in-law and bridesmaids for advice on fi nal decisions. They can help you decide on the overall look and vision for your event.
From there, pass the reins over to your planner and designer, who will turn that vision into a reality. Remember, your planner is there to help you as much or as little as you want, so use them however you see fi t. A great way to stay connected while planning a destination wedding is through video conferencing.
Inviting your mother, future MIL and bridesmaids to those virtual meetings is an awesome way to keep them involved and show them that their input is valued.
