I got married last summer, but the best piece of advice I heard was that no one will be as excited for your wedding as you will be.  It’s important to be realistic about who will be interested in talking about wedding planning; otherwise, you’re setting yourself up for disappointment unfortunately.  I generally tried not to bring up the wedding planning unless someone specifically asked about it (that’s probably just my personality though).

Do you work at a workplace where everyone talks about their personal lives often?  I’ve worked in places where people are generally uncomfortable hearing about others’ social/personal/family lives.  Some times people just don’t feel like socializing at work and want to keep things separate.  Don’t take it personally 🙂

On the other hand, if this woman does her share of gabbing about herself but is rude to you when you’d like to share, it’s really not appropriate for her to eye roll and glare.

You know.  I recently got engaged…march 19.  I was working on a project with a woman that has been engaged for years.  She was not happy at all.  Whenever I mentioned it, which wasn’t much, she would make a point of letting everyone know that they haven’t set a date because she is too busy. 

So, sometimes I think we have to be a little sensitive.  I think there are two kinds of engaged.  Engaged and we set a date.  Engaged forever.

i really never talk about it to anyone unless they bring it up…which people invariably always do..but you really need to tone it down if people aren’t asking you outright. it can be annoying to others (and distracting in a working environment) if you are always tlaking about it and they aren’t interested….IMO.

My Dad isn’t too happy that we’re reconciled, and planning a ‘wedding’ again (I say ‘wedding’ because we’re not doing a big ceremony, or anything.. probably just the JOP, and small restaurant reception). I know he’s just being cautious because of how Fiance, and I split before, but we’ve worked really hard on our relationship, and things are better than they ever were before.

That being said, my Dad made a quip about how getting married is a waste of time/money, as they always end up in divorce, and also wondering “how long [we’re] going to last, this time“, and I just let it go in one ear, and out the other. He’s entitled to his opinions, and feelings.. but, I wish he’d just keep his mouth shut, sometimes.

But I AM happy and in love. I want to share it with everyone

the thing is not everyone will care – just like those annoying people who talk about their kids pooping or something stupid about their furbaby – your wedding IS exciting… to you but not to everyone else
