I have been feeling for a while that my FI’s anxiety level would be too high if we discussed wedding-related things every time we got together (he gets anxious about any major changes in his life and sometimes small ones too lol). We only see each other about twice a week so that means every other date woud be a wedding-free date (as much as possible). Anybody else make a rule to balance out their time together so its not all weddding all the time? Come to think of it, I better set this rule for the BM’s too… They don’t want to hear about it all the time either.

Good rule. Although, when you’re a month or two away from your wedding, every day will become a wedding day! (I’m speaking from experience haha.) I’ve found that it’s good to balance my time just for the sake of making sure I continue to live my “normal” life even while in the midst of figuring out wedding details.

I agree with jenbrandner, when you get to a few months away, every day is wedding day. However, FI and I did stuff all along so that we didn’t feel rushed or pressured or weddinged out.

I haven’t found a need for this really as the wedding hasn’t really taken over OUR life (just my brain – but I like it that way ;-))
But at the same token we live together so when we need to talk wedding we do and the rest of the time we don’t!
But good for you! I think it is important with the BM though! I usually wait for them to bring it up! I like hearing about their lives first – they are so much more interesting than the fact that I just finished my DIY veil etc.!
