Before i got engaged, i watched countless friends stress and freak out during their 9 month long engagements. I always said- i’ll be taking at least a year to plan!! I always knew i wanted to get married in spring- march specifically. So when FI proposed on the last day of August, that meant a nice 18 month engagement.
we’re 13 months into it, and i am SO READY FOR THE WEDDING TO BE HERE!!!! I’ve ended up taking on slightly overwhelming projects bc of allllll the time i had. and now i wish i would have just made things simpler for myself. I’m getting over the planning. I have always been the big planner. Helped all my friends plan their weddings, and planned tons of festivities for them. and loved every second of it! but none of it was spread out over a year and a half.
My new wedding advice to anyone is to try and keep the engagement period to about a year long. I’m ready to be marriedddd!!! I know i’m not alone in this!

Right there with you ladies. We will have a 10 month engagement when all is said and done and I feel like I could have done it in 3 months. I am literally bored. All the vendors are contracted, all decor is done, honeymoon is done and I am twiddling my thumbs…and I refuse to spend more money to add more touches that no one will even notice, just to give me something to do..ugh!

theEguarantee: Mine is 50 days away after a 14 month engagement. I was completely cool until about 2 months ago. (so 4 months out). I realized I had kind of procrastinated on all the extras. I have all the vendors down, but no decor or little “special touches”. I am seriously freaking out.
I told my fiance last night we had 50 days left. He got mad at me for reminding him!!! LOL I know he is stressed too.
I would not worry too much yet- you still have so much time! Take it one week at a time. Thats how I am getting by now. I don’t have too much time during the week because i work, so I plan my schedule around “this weekend I’m doing this.” and “this weekend i’m doing that”. Pace yourself!!

We have been engaged for a year and a half, been together for 5 years. I was ready for it to be over before it even started. I really just wanted a courthouse wedding with a nice dinner after, but because we are waiting on my FI to graduate, and because my parents and my FI really want a traditional wedding (his mother is in the same boat as me) we have to wait until June of 2015. I’m excited for the marriage, excited for the honeymoon, just not excited for the wedding.
