When Brides Don’t Squeal Enough
I have been contending with a lot of negative feedback from my future in-laws regarding my nontraditional wedding decisions and so I am feeling a little humorless when it comes to discussing event details with casual acquaintances.

How can I address others’ unsolicited wedding enthusiasm without seeming negative or rude? —Molly
