I wouldn’t say anything.

I feel for you but this isn’t about your friends it about you and you BF.

If you feel really ready then that’s what you should focus on. Your feelings, not your friends.

These girls might just be bridzillaing a bit. Its hard not to become a spoiled brat and blow your wedding completely out of proportion. Even sane people like me can catch ourselves acting bratty.

Be excited for them and do not fret. When you two are ready and your turn comes it will be just as special and very meaningful.

In the meantime if people ask you just say “we are very happy where we are right now and in no rush but when the time comes ill let you know.” Its not only classy but it speaks highly of your maturity and commitment to eachother.

Best of luck,

Xx

Audrey

ahh got to LOVE this question. I think everyone here on the waiting boards knows how annoying that question can be!

I am in a similar boat – we are waiting for financial reasons and people don’t seem to understand why we are waiting! We were at a wedding recently (destination wedding too – so the questions got dragged out over a few days!) and every guest at the wedding was coming up to us saying “We hear you are next” even when they didn’t know us! I felt bad for my boyfriend because he has a lot of pressure on him from everyone around him (including his family now – they never used to ask him when he was going to propose) to get on with it.

There is no good way to combat this question… people will always ask. When it really gets to me I just try to remind myself that people only ask us that question because they want us to be married and believe that we are a good couple.

I wouldn’t really say anything to your friend – as Audrey said she may be in a bit of a Bridezilla mode with the focus being on HER wedding… just try to let it roll off your back as much as you can.

Good luck
