I’m not sure that this is in the right spot but just curious if this happens to anyone else and how they handle it…
I’m the first of my friends to get engaged. Most of my friends are not in relationships. However, when wedding talk comes up, they interrupt me and start talking about their weddings.
*insert puzzled expression*
One of my friends has never been kissed but informed me of the venue, the date she wants, the colors, that they’ll write their own vows, go to Aruba for their honeymoon, etc.
I don’t know how to respond to this. I just smile and nod but it’s weird and, to be honest, annoying, especially when they start to criticize my decisions. I’ve tried to not bring up wedding talk but the conversation inevitably turns to it at some point.

Try limiting wedding talk. It’s a little odd, but they’re just fantasizing.

That’s so frustrating! I don’t understand people like that. When you are the first to get married, a lot of your friends act strangely but I never had friends telling me about their theoretical weddings!

I had a couple friends like that too… I just handled it like you did: smile, nod, let them talk and then change the subject to non-wedding stuff and keep the wedding talk with those particular friends to a minimum. It’s annoying but I think you are handling it well!

I would just be excited that my friends wanted to talk about wedding things with me!
I know that I thought about my wedding long before I was engaged, so I don’t think it’s that weird. And now that they’re watching you plan, they’re probably thinking about it even more.
