My boyfriend and I went and looked at rings for the first time on Friday. While everyone knew we were working towards an engagement, it was the first time there had been a serious discussion.
I of course told my two best girl friends and BF told his parents. Who told his sister. And then i felt obligated to tell my parents. So now I feel that everyone knows… and its ALL anyone wants to talk about.
While I will talk about my dream wedding right and left, it just feels weird to talk about it ad nauseum. I guess I worry that when I actually do get engaged nobody is going to care since they knew it was coming and we’d already been talking about.
Maybe I’m just overthinking things, but i’m already a little on bridal brain overload and I worry I wont be as excited when it does happen!

I understand completely!
My BF’s mom (whom I love so much) is always talking to me about our wedding, yet we are not even engaged. I know we will be soon, but I secretely wish people would wait until it is official before discussing wedding dates, etc.
So yep, I get where you’re coming from!

Haha! I can MOST CERTAINLY relate! Right after bf took me to pick out a ring, I told both best friends and my mother, who told two sisters…naturally I felt obligated to tell the other two along with HIS mom…luckily my family is HUGE so I’ll probably still have a lot of excited people when the time comes! And let’s hope that time is soon because I can’t take much more of this!!! I’m sure your family will still be excited for u regardless 🙂

I know people will be excited for me, but its crazy! My bf’s nice has already told everyone she’s going to have an aunt… and she’s 4! Its amazing how fast news travels in 48 hours

I think you’re definitely overthinking it. I think when it all actually happens, you’ll be just as excited as ever. My BF already asked my dad, my family knows we went ring shopping and EVERY time I see them, they want to talk about it. I’m sort of the same way, and would rather wait until it actually happens. I just try to redirect the conversation to another topic so I don’t overload. Maybe just explain that you’re excited but you’d like to just enjoy this time until you get engaged.
