How to Dodge Questions on Being Engaged

This post is for those who are being silly about confirming rumors of being engaged.


Here are some standard answers you can use:

1. The thought makes me hyperventilate.
2. The to-do list is quite long, must complete it first.
3. We're still saving up for it.
4. We're planning to elope.

And the best answer that usually shuts up people

5. We accept donations.

I'm trying to come up with more silly answers. If you have any, hope you can share `em!

  1. Hi.I just wanna ask what appropriate words to put on invitations if the bride and groom preferred cash as gift?

  2. My fiance and I are having a long engagement (20 months total, we're already at 16 months to go) but people always asked "Why so long of an engagement?!?!" Some comebacks I came up with were "Just so I have enough time to reconsider if I feel like it" or "That's just the date we're telling people we aren't inviting" ... was usually pretty good way to shut people up!

    (The real reasons: We are already invited to 8 weddings next summer and I am traveling for work for three months in the middle of the engagement!)
