Question:How do politely ask people to keep their opinions to themselves?

Answer:

I think you have to focus on what's important to you and why, so rather than saying "i don't like your idea or i don't like that idea" you can say something like, "what's important to me is..." or "since this is such an important day i would like to remember as well as enjoy i feel i need to stay true to my desires and while i appreciate your suggestions, you need to remember that this is my wedding"

something like that : )
