@loveknows: I’m not having a big wedding but if I did I think it would be fun to have some surprises in store.

I share everything via the internet. I write basically everything on my blog, which is linkied to my facebook.

When I first got engaged, my mom didn’t really seem too interested, so I created a private blog, and my two MOHs read it and comment.  Now my mom is much more involved, so I share most of my ideas between the 3 of them.

haha, i just registered for weddingbee for this very reason!  i have severn BMs who are ALL married, and as sweet as they are, they’re just over the caring-about-weddings stage of their lives.  FI and his friends are just guy’s guys, and well, there’s an internet full of wedding-obsessed brides who love to talk about this stuff, so what better place to let loose :).

in answer to your question, though, i try to avoid talking about the wedding unless someone asks.  i remember when some of my friends were engaged, wedding planning was all they’d ever talk about.  one friend, especially, was engaged for two years and talked wedding non-stop.  i tried to be happy for her, but i was single at the time.  even after year one, when i’d try to mention a date i’d been on she’d immediately change the subject to what color twine she was going to tie her programs with…i thought i was going to strangle her.  (that and i vowed that for the sanity of the people around me, i’d never have more than a 1yr engagement :P).

so yeah, no need to be secretive per se, but if you’re in doubt about whether the folks you’re talking to are interested, just share here–we care :).

I don’t share unless asked. I really don’t have a huge need to share details, I’m not too girly in that way, i tend to keep my own counsel. So I just research my details and post on boards like WB. Thats enough for me.

I am overly sharing when it comes to wedding details! (iPhone is partially to blame.. it’s just so easy to have a “Wedding” photo album with pics of everything!). I usually tell people “let me know when you want me to stop showing you pictures because I’ll keep going all day if you let me!” It’s gotten to the point, though, where I’m trying to calm it down because I do want some things to be a surprise. FH wants EVERYTHING to be a surprise, so he gets annoyed when I whip out my phone to show pics. when someone asks about something. I’m shocked I’ve kept my dress a secret from him!! It’s just so exciting I want to share it with everyone- except most of the time, others aren’t as excited as I am about my centerpieces, but that’s totally understandable!

There are 5 people that I share my wedding planning with…My sister, Fiance, his sister, and one long-term friend. Since we are having a pretty small wedding I want to keep all of the details to myself. If I tell too many people, everybody will know all the details before the wedding.

I never talked about it too much, but was willing to give an answer to anybody who asked about anything.

I share most details with my sister (matron of honor). However, there are surprises that my Fiance and I would like to keep for the wedding so there are quite a few things that no one knows. It’s nothing crazy big like flowers or something, just things we plan to do during the reception and wedding that I want to surprise people with.


My family and his know what type of people we are so they know that they are in for fun surprises with us lol nothing embarrassing or the likes.


But for most wedding details everyone knows since I post most of it on facebook Laughing

I only really talk to one of my BMs about our plans… and I really haven’t even told her all the details.  We’re still pretty early in the planning process though… I hope I’m able to keep some things a secret!  I’m usually a pretty private person though… so I don’t think I’ll have that much of a problem.  :o)

I don’t tell anyone really. I talk with my FH abotu some things and I have shared a few details with Future Mother-In-Law. I haven’t really gotten that much into planning yet so I don’t have many details to share.

I tend to keep them to myself though.

There are a few people (my Maid/Matron of Honor, mother, BMs) who know more things than most, but there are a few things that only my FH and I know. It’s impossible to keep too much to myself, because I value my loved ones’ opinions… plus we’re getting closer and closer to the day so it’s increasingly exciting 🙂 The average guest is completely in the dark!

I share my plans with my mom and my moh, unfortunately I don’t feel comfortable sharing my plans with my other bm because she is getting she became engaged after me and is getting married before me and so far she has taken every single idea i have shown her that I wanted for my wedding. I’m ready for June 18th to come so I feel comfortable sharing my ideas again because I love talking to people about it.
