MrsMore14:  I get this question… ALOT. I give them all an honest answer… “no.”

I’m excited to marry my Fiance, but I’m ready for this wedding to be over. I will say it’s entertaining to see everyones reaction to that response though.

You’re overthinking.  It’s just a conversation starter, kind of like “how about that weather?” or “how’s your new job?” or “how about them (insert sports team here)?”.  

I agree with PP in that I’m ready for the axe to drop and just have it be over.  I’m in this waiting period now.  I don’t know if we will end up with 60 guests or 130, so I can’t do too much by way of table numbers other than wait, favors etc.  I’m just READY.

I’ve been getting this question a lot too, and I can see why you think it is an odd question to ask but I think people just really don’t know what else to say.  My response is usually “yes and no”, yes I am excited to marry my fiance, but like a previous poster said, I am also ready for this wedding to be over with!

I agree with the no. I love my Fiance more then anything, but wedding planning is hard! I don’t know how people do it for a profession!

I hated this question so much but the one i hated more was “are you nervous?”

Nervous? For?? I couldnt tell what they were really asking.. nervous to be in front of 400 people? or nervous to be married? i think if i was nervous i probably wouldnt be ready… js.

Hmm, should I be worried I don’t get this question? Joking aside, its mostly people asking how planning is coming along. They seem to want to be there for me, and I appreciate that. I can imagine now that we are 5 months out, sometime soon, I will start getting this question. I’m hoping that I will be pumped, because I’m excited to have a lot of fun at our wedding.

MrsMore14:  People are just trying to be polite and show some interest in something important that’s going on in your life. When they don’t ask, brides are on here complaining “nobody cares about my wedding!” I recommend just nodding and saying “yep, definitely exciting times!” and the conversation will be over. It’s really no different than “nice weather we’re having.” Nobody needs to know that it’s actually the exact same conditions of your beloved Grammie’s funeral so to you, no it’s not nice weather. If you WANT to get into a big convo about it, feel free to share, but otherwise just accept the attempt at polite human contact and go about your day. nbd.

I always get the “so how are the wedding plans coming along!?!?!”

It makes me stressed out just thinking about it, and I don’t particularly want to go into detail with people I barely know about all the plans so I hate that questions.

And I feel the same… Yes I am so freakin excited to make a committment to my best friend and wear my beautiful dress, but I am not really one to be the centre of attention so its kind of daunting to be it for the entire day! And also, I am a control freak so I am stressed about everything that will be happening while I am getting ready and stuff…

I ususally just say “Yeah! I mean, it’s a lot to do and figure out…(pause) but it’ll be worth it.”

Becuase I find wedding planning stressful (well, the money part of it) and a bit…exhausting. But yeah, I am excited to marry my Fiance. So, stock answer it is!

MrsMore14:  I’m a November bride, too! I am just about sick of every version of this question. I know people mean well, but I am just done and ready to experience what I’ve spent nearly a year planning! I usually give people a standard practiced answer- ‘Yes I’m excited.’ If they ask more- a common follow up is ‘so what do you have left?’ I just tell people we’re pretty much done except for little things. I don’t go into details, especially if they’re not invited.

I usually say “yes, but I’m more excited for our honeymoon!”

onthefritz:  haha this is exactly how I feel and exactly how I answer. I’m now known in my office as the “Anti-bride” and they get a kick out of telling me my countdown (because I obviously have no clue… and I panic each time they tell me how close we are) and asking me what I’m hating about wedding planning at the moment.

If it makes you feel any better, now that DH and I are married, all we get is “So how is married life??” What am I supposed to say, shitty? Its great, we have a great life together lol. Leave me alone!
