The Dilemma

I just got engaged over the holidays! I told my friends and family (and shared a ring selfie on Instagram, obviously) and the outpouring of love and support has been beautiful. But now, I’m getting bombarded with questions! Everyone wants to know when and where I want the wedding, what I want my dress to look like and who’s paying for what. I can’t answer everything with “I don’t know!” and I don’t want to be rude, so what can I say to get everyone off my back?!
