I would not talk about the wedding around her. Just be social instead, you can always get around the conversation. Just give up details that are done or can’t be changed. She sounds insecure.

  That is tough. It sounds like she is trying to be supportive by asking questions…it’s just going a little too far! I would try answering her question with a question. If she asks about something, say it’s going well, and then ask about something going on with her. She may try to go back to it, but hopefully it will help. Is there a task that she could be solely responsible for? Maybe that would help.

Oh geez…that would get overwhelming! Maybe you could tell her that you just need a little space as wedding planning can be stressful, and you and fi want to do things just you two. And tell her you don’t want to talk wedding 24/7…you’re just not that kind of bride. 😉 good luck and deep breaths!
