I personally did not feel anxious about telling people because I’m one of those people who likes to be in the spotlight.  But I think that the feeling will go away soon.  You’ll tell people the story about the engagement, and pretty soon they’ll kind of “get over it” and they won’t ask about it as much.

@desthebride:  I understand how you feel.  I also hate being the center of attention and get nervous speaking to groups.  That’s one reason I had a very small wedding.  I’m sure part of what you are feeling is giddiness which is similar to nervousness sometimes.  I think it’ll die down a little once you get used to being engaged.  And, even though I had a small wedding and relatively small celebrations (shower, reception, etc…), I found that I ended up really enjoying being “the bride” and kinda missed it when it all died down.  So it can end up being a really fun thing, even for those of us who prefer to watch than to be watched. 

Congrats on your engagement!!!
