I’ve just been saying “thanks,” and then going on about my merry way, doing what I want and disregarding the advice immediately. 🙂

Smile and nod. Smile and nod.

“Thanks for your suggestion- we’ll have to think about that one!” Then, either think about it or immediately discard it from your mind- depending on what the idea/ suggestion is.

I agree with the smile and nod.  It works so much better than saying it’s my wedding blah blah blah…you don’t have to take the idea and they leave thinking you have.  Everyone leaves happy!

I always use the “I’ll definitely run it by my fiance to see what he thinks!” and then promptly ignore. As Veggie said, smile and nod works well too. 🙂

hahaha smile and nod seems to be the consensus and I must agree… some things are better to just ignore! You will get a lot of it, so just roll it off your back and move on!
