Just curious how you bees answer this question. I get it ALL THE TIME and I’m sure you do as well. I wonder, do they really want to know or is it just something to say? I don’t want to say too much and talk their ears off but there usually is something excited I can talk about related to the wedding. Some folks I’ve referred to my blog.
So tell me, how you do answer, “How are the wedding plans going?”

I usually say something along the lines of “they’re going… still have some time, but things are coming along good. Thanks for asking”.

i normally say something really vague and non-commital, like “pretty smoothly! everythings really coming together!” and then keep on moving in the conversation ha – im afraid of becoming the only-talks-about-her-wedding girl, so im most comfortable with this

I usually answered with “oh it’s going well, <insert small one sentence excerpt about what we are currently working on>. then ask that person something about what is going on with their life“
I’m sure they are sincere in asking but probably don’t want the 30 minute version I would give my Maid/Matron of Honor. 😀

“meh, fine” For some reason i loooooove talking about weddings on the internet but its basically the last thing I want to talk about with my friends.

I say typically
“Its great. All the major items are booked, now its just details and logistics” If they want to hear more for real they will usually ask another question at that point. If not, then I gave a pleasant enough response.

“Good, busy. The big things are done. Now we’re just tying up the loose ends.”

These days, I make a gagging noise. SIGH…..
I think people like to hear wedding updates! Well, the non-super-detailed version maybe 😉 Before I got sick o’ planning I made a lot of peoples’ eyes glaze over with details of different venues, etc. Then i just started saying “good” if it was someone I didn’t know well or someone at work and other folks got a short recap of whatever it was I was working on at the time.

LOL. I get it all the time too. I usually make a BIG SIGH, and then say “it’s going”. hahaha…

I always said that they were going well. That was all that I would say. lol

I say, “They’re done.” *smile*
When we were still planning, “They’re coming along.” *smile*
Mostly, I find this question annoying because (in my experience) people don’t seem to care about the answer– they’re just making small talk. Or they’re trying to figure out of they’re invited or not. And I guess I get a kick out of making things awkward sometimes. Teehee.

- Wedding: October 2011 - Tre Bella, Mesa, AZ
“We have our venue booked, but we’re still looking for cake, officiant and a few other things. I’m getting ready to send out our save the dates as soon as we get our engagement photos back.”
That’s pretty much what I’ve said. If someone starts acting interesting and asking more questions, I’ll get into it, but typically I try to generalize and just give basics. I had one girl (friend of a friend at a party who apparently loves wedding) get super excited and start asking me the theme, colors, what my dress looks like, what the venue looks like, how I want my hair, etc., so it was really nice to squee with someone, but usually I don’t because I don’t want to talk people’s ears off or be obnoxious (which, from what my friends have said, I haven’t done at all so I guess I’m doing it…right). 😛

@MsJeep23: I do the same thing! Especially the sigh! I’m so sick of wedding planning that most days, that’s what I tell people. Or I say “Good. I’m just ready for it to be April 30th”

i think it would be fun to have a total freak out next time someone asks, like, “OH MY GOD I JUST HAD TO YELL AT THE CATERER BECAUSE HE WANTED TO MAKE CARAMEL FILLING INSTEAD OF SALTED CARAMEL” and then fake a seizure. i get the impression they really want to see you spazz out when they ask.

@Mrs. Meowerson: hahahaha! OMG I want to do this! It may just get people to stop asking because they don’t want to hear my “drama” anymore!
