Being at a wedding is bad, but not attending one is the best in the world!!!People are comparing ours to my FI’s brother wedding like 6 years ago! But since I didnt make it, I can start openminded and am not comparing them at all because I didnt see it. Thank goodness!!

Its annoying.

I’m going to go against the grain and say that I LOVE attending weddings as an engaged couple. It makes me envision us saying our vows. Most of the time when people want to talk about wedding details, I can tell it’s because they are genuinely excited about it. People are generally well-meaning, even if it comes across as bossy. If they suggest something I don’t like, I just smile and say Oh! We’ll have to think about that! It’s not like they really get to make the decisions anyway.

My advice to you is to lighten up.

I’m actually kind of enjoying it… I secretly like critiquing everything myself, and Fiance and I are always looking at eachother like “omg we are not going to do that!” or “wow, what a great idea!”

but yeah, I’m really sorry to hear it’s so annoying for you! (I don’t think anyone has said annoying things like that to me yet….) Just try to believe that all these people just have the best intentions, and try to have a bit of fun also! (you’re not engaged forever!)

Ugh I completely agree on this topic. My friend is getting married in December and I am a Bridesmaid or Best Man in her wedding. Every event I have been to for her wedding I have people asking me the details of mine.. and it makes me feel bad because this is HER time to shine. I don’t want to even talk about mine because I feel like all the attention should be on her. At the same time I agree that it makes it more exciting to think about my own wedding and envision things… as well as take down some “DO NOT” notes!

Yikes, my cousin’s getting married next january and my engagement will be public by then. To make things worst, her mom has always made a competition out of everything we do (I’m just a year older than her), we really don’t care about this competition, but her mom will make sure everyone talks about how great her daughter’s wedding was and how mine won’t be able to top it, or worse, how I got engaged trying to keep up.. ugh

Not until we had gone to a couple weddings did Fiance become interested in ours.  However, nobody asked me questions about my wedding or critiqued the wedding we were attending, fortunately.  So it was nice going as an engaged couple.  But the last one, I was a Bridesmaid or Best Man and during dinner I had to tell Fiance to stop talking about our wedding.  He was only talking to me, but it was annoying and I thought rude, especially when we were sitting at a table with my friends and only 2/3 are invited to our wedding.

@Pinksapphire: LOL! I hate it too. I was at a wedding 2 weeks ago, and everyone was asking questions and saying: you are next! like every 5 minutes. And I just wanted to relax, have a good time,  and not think about my wedding.
