Urgh I feel you.  I have an aqcaintance who has very different tastes from me. I like streamlined, chic, elegant. She likes over the top and slightly vulgar.  I’m Ralph Lauren, she’s Dolce and Gabana.  Anyways, she got engaged after my wedding.  She emailed me saying she loved everything about my wedding and wanted information on everything we did.  Where did we get our flowers, how did we make our guestbook, the templates for our dyi invitations.  I was so pissed and confussed.  This stuff isn’t even her style!  I just started ignoring her questions by sayign thank you to the compliments and not responding to where we got any particular thing.

@JM1217: I would get crazier and crazier in what you ‘say’ you are doing.

DJ? We are having my 6-year old cousin sing ‘You are my sunshine’ all night.

Food? We’re serving beets topped with Limburger cheese. Also, head cheese.

Honeymoon? Downtown Detroit. Three days touring abandoned car manufacturing plants.

She’ll either get the hint or have one craaaaaaaaaaaazy wedding.

It sounds like she is either super-worshippy of you or has no clue what she wants for her own wedding. Either way, I’d try to either not respond or steer the conversation elsewhere. Also, watch the movie “Roommate”. Post here at least once a day so we know you are ok.

Regarding the engagement photos – I don’t think those poses are really that unique.  I also sometimes sit with my head my FI’s lap, have pics of us walking & laughing, etc.  Plus the photographer likely is quite involved in deciding what to do for the photos. 

But, that said, I don’t really care overly much about things like this, but I can how taken as a whole it’d be annoying.  Either comment on it directly to her, let it go, just don’t talk to her about it anymore, or do as you’ve done and lie to her about it.  (I’d be curious if you used awful examples what she’d do, but I don’t recommend it.)

@HappilyEverAfter54: wait is she the one with the Tuesday wedding? I’m having deja vu here. Ok, now she’s moving up on the weird scale. What’s she going to do if you get pregnant one month after your wedding and she can’t? This girl………*cue Twilight Zone music*…….

@JM1217: I would totally make weird stuff up and let her go ahead and “copy” all of the bad ideas.  It might not be nice, but it sure would be amusing!
