Last month, a friend cancelled her weddung that was due to take place this summer. This is obviously a stressful and upsetting time for her, and I don't want to make it any worse.
The problem is I am getting married this summer, close to her booked wedding date. My problem is: do I mention my wedding? I usually would mention bits and pieces e.g. if someone asked what I had been doing at the weekend I might mention plans I had made (I do usually only mention the wedding if I'm directly asked, although not all the time). I obviously wouldn't start a conversation about the wedding to only her, but what should I do if someone else brings it up when she's around? At the moment, it feels like I'm treading on eggshells.
Just try to be as tactful as possible I guess! Try not to rub her nose in it but If she's a reasonable human being she'll understand. If I was her I'd probably take myself away from the conversation if it turned to weddings anyway but I wouldn't expect my friend not to be excited and want to talk about it.
I would try and be as tactful as possible. Maybe if someone else asks you could try and keep your answers short and change the subject a bit. If she's a good friend then she should understand that some wedding talk is unavoidable.
