@FutureMs.Canadian: With my bridesmaids, wedding talk happens if there’s nothing else to do.  If we’re getting together to go hang out downtown or go shopping or whatever…we almost never talk about it.  If we’re sitting around on couches? It comes up pretty fast, haha!

@FutureMs.Canadian: What I have been doing is trying to focus in on other things going on around me and doing my best to limit my wedding stuff to emails. Here in the last 2 weeks it has been coming up more because my bridesmaids are working on dresses and things like that but otherwise I try not to boggle them down with wedding talk. I also write on my wedding blog so that keeps most in the loop without me repeating the same thing to different people daily. lastly, Wedding Bee has helped because everyone here is in my shoes so that helps me not bore others.

Hope this helps and Good Luck

I don’t think there’s anything wrong with talking about your wedding.  It’s what’s going on in your life (among other things, I’m sure).  So, I’d just give it as much attention as you would anything else.

Just give your conversation partners as much air time to talk about themselves… it’s about common curtosy and being genuine, IMO.

I think I was so afraid of being over the top wedding talk that I didn’t really talk about it – and I think I cheated myself out of sharing (and friends from hearing) about the experience.

Being on the married side of the fence – I’d love chatting with a friend about her wedding plans.  HOWEVER, if the conversation never included a “how are you?” type moment – I’d be annoyed (no matter what the subject matter).
