The problem with talking to other people is that often times, the topic of conversation drifts away from what's truly important: your upcoming wedding.
But fear not! Reductress, a new online magazine for women by Beth Newell and Sarah Pappalardo, both writers and performers of UCB and NYC comedy scenes, has published an article on how to bring the conversation back to to your wedding:
Give Her an Honorary Wedding Job.
Who wouldn’t love the privilege of arriving an hour early to make sure your guests sign the guestbook before they take a seat? Your friend will feel honored that you’re including her on the most important day of your life. She’ll let you talk for hours about how your dieting bridesmaids better not overshadow your wedding weight loss.
Respond to Anything Anyone Says with the Sentence: “Oh, That Reminds Me. I’m Getting Married in 3 Months.”
It might be clunky, but it’ll do.
Ask About Her Recent Vacation.
Give her just two seconds to reminisce before you hint that her destination wasn’t nearly as nice as where you’re planning to honeymoon.
Foolproof! Now, about that flower arrangement ...
