I completely understand. I think it’s quite common! We’re engulfed in wedding stuff right now.

I can definitely relate to not having good answers to the “what’s new?” kind of questions, and I also try not to bring it up all the time, I usually end up just kind of staring at the person thinking of what the hell to say…

Well I guess I’m THAT girl right about now but I’ve listened to my friends be THAT girl when they got engaged, married, prego, and at the baby’s 1st birthday. Honestly I feel like its my time to be THAT girl and I’m ashamed of it and I’m certainly not going to stop talking about it. If people don’t want to hear about it they can walk away.

@.twist.: I feel the same, What do they want me to say? I dont always have something to share…. So i just tell them “Great, its coming along” and then we just sit there all awkward like LOL

I think its common to be consumed by one of the most important events in our lives! I can understand your desire to avoid the constant wedding babble but honestly as you said it is unavoidable.

This is such a joyful time in your life, don’t try to squash it. People go on and on about new cars, new furniture, a recent shopping find why not talk openly about your wedding and the latest details?

Me personally, I NEVER get tired of hearing about weddings so feel free to spill.

@travelerkate: This could have been my post.

 

I was just thinking this the other day, when my FIL’s came back from a 3 week trip to Europe and we had dinner with them. Instead of Eastern European architecture, all I could think of asking them about was RSVP’s, registry issues, and liquor shopping. I was so single minded!

But, the wedding is close to a month away. I’m obnoxious. I know it. I apologize all the time to my family and friends, but unless they can take over the planning for me they just have to indulge me for 39 more days.  ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m not totally engulfed in wedding planning yet, but I KNOW that I will feel the exact same way as you! I’m always so concious of things like that. I think everyone else in here is right, in that it’s normal to be excited and people will cut you a lot of slack. The other thing that will help me through is to find those friends I have who just LOVE talking about wedding stuff anyway, and get my fix from them! Haha. I already know that two of my friends are dying for me to start planning so that they can talk my ear off about what they did/are going to do for their own weddings.
