    Definitely keeping details to a minimum.  I talk to my Fiance, my mom & dad, and occasionally my bridesmaids about plans.  This is partly because I want guests to experience everything for themselves on the wedding day, and partly because I try to be hyper aware of the fact that no one cares about our wedding as much as Fiance & I do…  I’m super conscious of not boring people with wedding talk, even though it’s a big part of my life right now.

    If people ask me specific questions, sure I do! I don’t sit around and blah-blah-wedding, but it’s the only wedding in our families for awhile and everyone asks me about it all the time! It’s fun to share, and I am lucky enough I don’t have pushy relatives who think I need their advice.

    I keep wedding details to a minimum, mostly because I don’t think most people want to hear about it!

    @SamanthaLovesJames:  Exactly!  I will definitely answer questions about our wedding when asked (it’s not like I’m trying to keep everything top secret); I just don’t really bring it up, and I don’t go on & on when asked.  Wink

    Some fun details (like the fact that we’re having a photobooth and cheesecake buffet for dessert) I’m purposefully keeping from people because I don’t want them to know until they show up & see it!

    I give out some details…. when asked I tell.  But I try to keep wedding talk to a minimum irl.  The only people I tell just about everything (well major stuff anyway) is my mom and sister and it’s becuase you’d think they were the ones getting married.  They live far away and can’t be as involved as they would like so they ask me about the wedding and planning everyday.  

    I have a planning bio where I put a few diy stuff up and some of my ideas.  For the most part, the people that checked it out wont be at the wedding and the ones that will be won’t really remember any of it anyway. LOL

    No…but Fiance tells ANYONE who will listen! It seriously drives me nuts, because a lot of the things we planned I thought would be fun surprises, but he gets too excited and blabs! I’m so happy he’s so excited, but geeze louise, keep cool man!

    Nope.  I’m a fairly private person.

    I didn’t tell guests much, but told a lot to people who weren’t coming who wouldn’t tell guests.

    It depends. Some people I talk about the details with (FI, mom, closest friends, people who are experienced I.E. my godmother who is a florist), but others I keep it locked and sealed. They will find out on the day of πŸ™‚

    Ugh, this is currently my biggest pet peeve!

     

    There are 3 other people in our group getting married this summer and they are acting like everything is the biggest secret in the whole entire world! No talking about their colours, dresses, wedding details at all.

    One close family member recently got married and completely lied about the colour and style of her dress!

    Drives me crazy, because some of those people are the ones who ask me ALL my details and I have no problem sharing anything. Then I feel bad when I ask them and it’s as if I asked them what colour underwear they were going to wear!!!!

    I wish brides remembered that even if you tell people ALL the details, it won’t detract from the things on the big day at all! It’s as if people think that if they overshare, people won’t appreciate it on the day.

     

    Ok, rant over!!

    I didn’t really, just because I didn’t think anyone would be interested in it.  I didn’t go so far as to keep things a secret though.  My friend had me go look for dresses with her twice, picked out a dress on a separate occasion, but refused to tell me what her dress looked like even though I wasn’t going to be able to go to her wedding.  This irked me so much.

    I have tried to keep it to a minimum but we do get excited sometimes. We keep both sets of parents in the loop but desperately want some details have our mark and for them not to know.
