From 'I Will' to 'I Do' - Part 1: Be Careful What You Ask For

This is not a wedding blog. By no means do I intend to change or slightly modify this blog, my blog full of wit and critical analysis of politics and lifestyle topics----to a wedding blog. However, I recognize that the bulk of my 'lifestyle analysis' is largely about my own lifestyle and right now my life is completely consumed by work and planning my wedding. As a result I have not written in almost 2 months in efforts to not discuss my inability to settle on a choice of tablecloth. (Which I have completely solved now...whew!)
So I have given myself permission to write about my experience wedding planning. Occasionally. Therefore I will include a 12 part series called "From I Will to I Do". However, there would be no discussion of taffeta versus satin, trust me.

When people find out that you are getting married they ask a series of standard questions, for instance, "when's the date" and "have you picked your colors"? Additionally, there is someone who probably only wants an update or simply wants to make conversation who asks "how's planning going?" DON'T ASK THAT UNLESS YOU REALLY WANT TO KNOW.
This is a question that you can't---well I can't---help but answer truthfully. "It's a little overwhelming." Here I am giving you an opportunity to end the conversion fairly quickly. It is advised to respond with "Yeah, it can be sometimes." Or "It will get better." And then get the hell out of there. If you respond "Yeah, how so?" You brought it upon yourself.
