Oh yeah almost everyone I talk to tells me congrats! I think it’s just a natural response when someone tells you they’re getting married, you have to wish them well whether you know them or not. I think the act of getting married is very universal and those that have been married or know someone getting married can identify with someone who is getting married too whether they know them personally or not. Even my little brother’s teenage friends always ask to see the ring and whatnot. It’s hilarious. I think people find it easy to talk about.

What’s starting to freak me out is how many people ask me how I’m feeling or am I nervous. I get asked this several times a day. I’M FINE! But if people keep asking then I am going to get nervous 😛

LOL – As I have been running errands (wedding related, i.e. dropping my invites at the post office, buying stuff at Michaels, telling my professors in case it conflicts with an assignment) I get a lot more “GOOD LUCK”s then congratulations LOL – I use to get it alot at the beginning, primarily from vendors on initial contacts.

for some reason i always get nervous when people tell me congrats, etc. i’m always so awkward. i think it’s because i know a lot of people feel like they’re supposed to say it, so it’s just blah-blah. stuff like that makes me nervous. i’m just an anxiety-ball, i guess. :p

What do you get discounts and freebies on? I will drop it at those places. I was engaged 7 months ago … so the “congratulations state” kind of faded and now it’s OMG your wedding is in +++++ and are you nervous? Lol.

I’ve been engaged almost 3 months, but still get the occasional congrats. Mostly from my regular customers and such that are just noe finding out from other people.

i dont like it! i too feel awkward, like “ohh…thanks…” and then they stare at you like they expect you to gush and jump up and down.   i think it’s bc my wedding is still over a year away (and i’ve been engaged a while) i’m not too caught up with emotion…but my engagement party is in 3 weeks so i’m prepared for a lot of them!

I don’t get too many anymore.  I think it’s nice but I’m not used to the spotlight.  I don’t bring up my wedding, unless people ask.

the day after we were engaged my boss bought some dom and made a huge announcement in our office so i got it over and done with in one hit and then the workforce (about 400 guys) would say congrats when i saw/spoke to them but it was pretty quite after that

The congratulations started about a month before the wedding, and they are just now fading out. I still get an occasional congrats when a business contact notices my name is changed, or a coworker see the wedding picture on my desk. It’s ok, I congratulate myself every time I wake up next to him!

Yeah, sometimes congrats can be awkward! Especially from people who seem to say it out of obligation. It’s exciting when people are truly happy for you but since I’m young (I’ll be 22 in December) a lot of people give me this look like I’m making a poor choice, even as they say “Congrats”. *sigh*

I am not getting the “congrats” anymore…Now I am getting the “Are you ready??”  Um no, thanks for reminding me of all the crap we still have to do!  haha
