    It may be because it's not that close yet. And also it may be you imagining it, do you feel like you talk about it too much? If you have this feeling, could you not maybe next time u see your friends, make a pact with yourself that there'll be no wedding talk that time? See if they bring it up, we only talked about the wedding if something major had happened which at 11 months to go there wasn't a lot at that time for us as all the biggies had been booked over a year before, and everything after that was towards the 5-6 month area x

    It was kind of the reverse for me: I talked about the wedding only to those who were definitely interested (ie my mum lol); with everyone else I made a conscious decision to try not to bring it up/only bring it up very occasionally, and I found that those people asked about it/wanted to talk about it all. the. time. I actually found it quite wearing as a lot of the time I just wanted to switch off/forget about it.

    Point being, the grass is always greener; while you might wish they'd be a bit more interested, it could easily go the other way and you'd end up being like 'Argh! I just want to forget about it!' lol

    I was exactly the same! I was so worried I would bore people that I just would not talk about it! It then got to the point where I would only talk about it if someone asked me stuff because then I knew they were interested and wanted to listen to me! If I needed to speak about wedding stuff I just came on here! x

    It's the other way round for us. FMIL keeps asking but we're just getting on with it. My Mum is showing a bit more interest now as there's been a lot going on over the last few months, but things are settling down now :o)

    It is the most important day of you life but it isn't theres so they don't want to talk about it all the time. My mum always told me "Everyones favourite subject is themselves" and if you think about it it is so true. So a little listening always goes down better X Don't be disheartened they will be excited for you x

    this is exactly what this is here for, come on here talk about it all you want :)

    its hard to stop yourself when its so exciting, its great when you have people that want to listen to you about it,but difficult when they seem like they dont care, i bet they do ,its just like if they were having a baby and would want to discuss it after a while you would be like "really baby talk again!" everyone has there thing going on thats important to them at that particular time.

    ive done so well no wedding talk unless other people bring it up and now my friend has said 'well you havent told me this' 'i didnt know that' .... thats probably because your not arsed and allways change the subject. so i started talking weddings and 5 mins in she changed the subject to babies, shes broody and wants another child. ive told her stop going on about it and get it done then (shes been broody for some time now!) and her response is 'ill wait till after christmas but means ill be pregnant for your wedding'
    which means no drinking for her and an early night..shes driving me mad

    Haha I completely understand what you're talking about! Luckily a lot of friends and family ask how all the planning is going but my poor colleagues probably can't wait until it's over!! Xxx
