constantly talking about the wedding???
I just feel like everyone always wants to talk about the wedding, as if I have nothing else going on in my life right now. Everytime I see someone it’s always “how’s wedding planning?”, “got everything picked out?”, “are you excited about the wedding?”, “what are you colors?” blah, blah, blah. I mean, I get that people are just curious and expect me to be excited but my life does not revolve around this wedding and I honestly hate having to answer the same questions over and over again. And it’s literally the same people asking me these things. It’s like they think “some huge wedding related development must have happened in the 2 weeks since I’ve seen you, tell me all about it”. And everytime I talk to my mother she always brings up something wedding related, whether it’s her dress, or the centerpieces, or the seamstress appointments…ughh, Im an adult, trust me you don’t have to remind me 50 times to do something.
Whew, sorry about the rant. I just can’t handle it sometimes. I do have an interesting, worthy-to-talk-about-life aside from this wedding.
Anyone else feel like this sometimes? Please tell me I’m not alone

I felt like it a lot towards the end – and always with my Mother-In-Law. Honestly, she and I didn’t see to eye to eye, so it got really hard to talk to her. when she’d bring it up, I would try to change the subject as soon as I could because I didn’t want to hear anything else about it.

I am. I have my “safe places” where I talk about wedding stuff to no end so that I don’t turn into that person who talks about their wedding non stop to anyone who will listen. This is one safe place and over email to my mom is another.
So when I’m posed with the “so how is it going? how’s the planning?” questions, I kinda feel like “ugh! can we talk about something else?” lol

@IzzyBear: yeah with some people, like when they ask “what are your colors” and i say “we arent having colors” then they think they have to tell me I’m doing it wrong because I dont have colors. Or like the other day when I ran into an old friend I havent talked to in over 2 years. She asked when the wedding was and I said its in two weeks and everything is finalized. She said “oh darn, I might be out of town, let me see if there is anyway I can go see my mom the week after that so I can come see you get married.” Then I have to be polite and tell her we are only having 25 guests including us and the photographer.
Other than things like that, I love talking about it with my very close friends and family if they are interested. 🙂

No one has really met my Fiance so I tend to go off on a tangent talking about him and blushing like a school girl. I love/hate that part lol

@IzzyBear: OMG YES! Everything I see someone I havent seen in a while the first thing i hear is about the wedding…”Are you still getting married?” “hows the wedding?” “hows the planning for the wedding?”….UGH! I will be so glad when its over!

@IzzyBear: Yupp I’m tired of it and have been tired of it for a looong time. We went through a couple months of transition where we actually canceled our original plans. So all plans were TBD, and of course this is when EVERYONE was asking about the wedding. It was so frustrating because I kept repeating the same thing to the same people. And they would just offer an opinion (which I never asked for) and have a look of concern on their face. So now that we’re back in the planning stages and only had a total of 3.5 months (currently with 1 month left) to pull it off, I am overrrr ittttt! It’s overkill now.

@abbie017: luckily my Future Mother-In-Law lives in another state and she really hasn’t tried to dictate my wedding. She did show my dress to everyone on her side of the family, which pissed me off, but what’s done is done I suppose.
@TaurianDoll: exactly! The Bee is fine, but IRL I’m just over talking about it
@legenwaitforitdary: aww, you’re not weird! I wish I was like that. My engagement is 15 months so for the first 5 months or so I was thrilled to talk about it, but now I’m just over it. Mainly because nothing’s changed since everything is all booked, yet the same people keep asking me about stuff.
@sheepandbear: oh, how awkward. I would die if that happened to me haha
@jesssamesssa: exactly! Sometimes you just want to talk about something else. It’s like since we’re getting married that’s all that’s going on in our lives…NOT
@Galang_Gyal: gosh I can’t even imagine how your situation must be. I’m sure everyone is all freaking out and you’re trying to remain calm and they aren’t helping. I have a similar situation…my venue is in the process of being sold so everyone keeps asking about that and I’m like “damnit! IDK what’s going on. I’m stressed enough already without you adding to it” lol

LOL Yeah. Been engaged since March 24th, and at least once a day since then…I hear “Have you done XYZ yet? No? You really should because….blah blah blah.” Dude! I have 18 months! Leave me the hell alone!
Oh, and a few (including friggin’ FAMILY members) have an issue with my date. “You really shouldn’t wait so long. He’ll leave you/find someone else/change his mind…blah blah blah.” Seriously? We’ve been together for 6 1/2 years. If he ain’t left by now, pretty damn sure after 3 years of angst over picking me the perfect ring, he just might be serious about me and our life together.

yes!! Its so old and I feel like its the only conversation that occurs between some of my co-workers and I. Every.Single.Time I talk to some of them they ask the same question, “hows the wedding planning?” Umm lets see, same as it was 3 days ago. For crying out loud just talk to me about the weather or something. After the wedding I know its going to be constant baby talk, ugh.

Well, my wedding is over LOL but I definitely remember in the weeks/days leading upgetting soooo sick of people asking if I was excited or nervous. I started giving some people the wrong answer just to mess with them, because I’m a jerk. Now I feel that way about my pregnancy – I’m 5 days away from my due date and constantly get asked how I’m feeling. I’m 39 weeks pregnant, how do you THINK I’m feeling?! Huge, tired, having constant pains and the urge to pee all of the time, and I want to get this baby out of me! But usually I just settle for saying, “Really pregnant.”

@katrinamlee: omg! If someone said that to me they would get the “WTF look” and I would walk away. Who does that?!?!
@adoc86: exactly!! And I’m not looking forward to all the “when are y’all going to start trying for babies?” questions. I should just be like “never”, smile and walk away haha (we are going to try in like 4-5 years but I would say never just to see people’s faces)
@Wonderstruck: I feel like when people start asking me if I’m nervous, excited, etc I’m just going to answer with “I’m having second thoughts about the whole thing…oh well!! Bye!” and walk away hahaha because, like you, I’m sarcastic and like to watch people freak out. I love your “really pregnant” answer by the way!

YES! Mostly just with my mom though. She is ALWAYS talking about wedding related things and what needs to be done and who she talked to about this and who is coming and not coming and blah blah blah… Lets talk about something else already!!
