Some brides get so caught up in wedding world that they chat about their nuptials and nothing else.And that's not much fun when you're one of these brides' friends.So how do you change your pal's ways without upsetting her?Read on.
Subtly change the topic.
Maybe your friend keeps talking about her wedding because you haven't tried talking about anything else.So if she's going on and on about her catering,tell her about the great restaurant you recently went to.Dishing on her DJ?Clue her in about that Bruno Mars song that you can't get out of your head.As long as the alternative topic you offer is somewhat relevant,she probably won't even notice that you've steered the conversation away from wedding talk.
Fill her in on your life.
With a true wedding-obsessed buddy,a slight diversion from her favorite topic won't stop her from returning to it.In that case,make it clear that you want a shot at talking about your own trials and triumphs.At the first sign of a lull,试着说,"I'm so glad I know what's going on in your life.Can I tell you what's up with me?" What friend would say no to that?
If the above subtle tactics aren't cutting it,it's time to say exactly what's on your mind.The key to getting her to talk about something else without offending her?Show her you care about her wedding and her."I love getting the inside scoop on your wedding,but I want to know what else you're up to.Tell me how your job's going,and then I'll fill you in about my current work situation." Hopefully after this she'll get the hint that you'd prefer not to discuss her wedding 24/7.But if not…
If you find yourself tuning out the momentweddingscome up,you've got to give it to her straight.Tell her you want her to be able to come to you with wedding news,but you feel like you don't get to talk about much else.Ask her to tell you her most important piece of wedding info of the day and then suggest a different topic of conversation.She may feel a little silly for letting her wedding dominate conversations,but if she's reasonable (which she should be,otherwise,why are you friends with her?) she'll be happy you were honest with her.
