I’m kind of in your boat…I’m very much looking forward to the wedding reception + honeymoon but I’m just not an overly excitable person. Sometimes I feel like my laid-back, calm demeanor makes people think I’m not as happy as I should be. It’s really just how I am.

Ah, don’t worry. I was never the super enthusiastic YAY WEDDINGS I HEART BEING A BRIDAL PRINCESS type of girl. :p The last month or so leading up to the wedding, my coworkers would be like “Are you excited??” and my default response was “I’m so ready for this to be over and be married already.” You’re not alone!

I felt your pain so accutely that I eloped and didn’t even get engaged because I feared exactly what you are describing!  God help me when I’m pregnant…I can’t hide that! The good news is that you only have two weeks!

@misspeanut:  Your response is great!

People are just trying to how ask how wedding planning is going. Just like someone might as “Are excited for your vacation”. I don’t think anyone who asks is expecting you to be off the wall about it. Try not to let it bother you, I think most people are just trying to ask about the wedding in general.

Since we did everything ourselves, I was absolutely more nervous/anxious about things going smoothly then I was excited (not to mention, I HATE being the center of attention).

People ask stupid questions like “are you excited yet” because they want to show an interest, but have no idea what to say.

While it is like nails on a chalkboard, help them out and just say “yep, it is going to be a great time” and carry on with your life. If you glare at them and say something sarcastic, they are going to think you are an ungratious bridzilla.

I give this rant 2 thumbs up!

People actually look at me in horror when I say NO.

I’m happy to be getting married. Can’t wait until I’m married. So over planning a wedding. I ran into a friend who is getting married 2 weeks after me and she feels the same way.

You were all up in my mind with this one.

Ha! I am totally with you on this one. Same exact thing.

I also hate: “Tell me the story of you got engaged!” to which I respond, “He asked me to marry him, gave me a ring, and I said yes.”

I also hate: “How is the planning going?” to which I think, “Umm… do you REALLY want to hear about dress regret and my obsessive search for the perfect garter? About not being able to find a ceremony site and about my Dad backing out on his offer to help pay for the wedding? Do you REALLY want to hear about our reception venue’s policy to nickel and dime clients until they breathe their final breath? Really?” But I just say, “good.”

I COMPLETELY AGREE WITH YOU.  I am constantly getting “Are you excited?!”  I’m still further out than you and I have a lot going on before the wedding (moving, travelling for work), so I usually just say “Yes, but I have so much going on before the wedding that I’m thinking mostly about those things right now!”
