The wedding is close. 39 days, to be exact. Everyone always asks me how wedding plans are coming along. I'm not really sure how to answer that....
"We are working on it."
"Still in progress."
"Not done yet."
How much detail do they want? Do they really care that we are compiling the guest list as we speak, or that we just decided on what flowers to use and what the cake flavors are? Or are they just asking to fill in the awkward silence/conversation gaps?
I have to gage the answer based on the situation: who is asking me, how much time we have to chat, and the way they asked the question. Usually I go with a safe, vague, "The plans are coming along nicely."
Don't get me wrong, I appreciate everyone who cares enough or even remembers to ask about it. I am surrounded by people who love and support me in a humbling way. I just find it amusing that I have such a hard time answering that silly question.
In case you were wondering, things really are falling into place perfectly. All thanks to my detail-oriented mother, supportive father, advising sister, and perfect fiance'. I am a lucky woman.
