  • Wedding: May 2014

@JustAnotherBee:  yes! I am very scared! I am not the kind of person who likes all of the attention on me so I definitely feel your nerves! My wedding is on May 31 2014 and when I think about it I get sweaty palms and my stomach turns into knots. I’m 30 and I love my fiancé but I’m so nervous! Just hang in there your not alone 🙂

You’re not alone!! I almost started a post like this because I was wondering if anyone else got nervous when they knew the proposal was coming. My SO has the ring, and I have ZERO doubt that he’s the one but yes, there are some nerves for sure!! It is a huge step but I’m ready 🙂

I’m not engaged, and only have a rough timeline (sometime in 2014) but sometimes I also feel scared.  Not because there are any red flags or I think marriage would be a mistake, but because promising “’til death do us part” is a BIG committment.  It’s the rest of our lives.  In some ways, it’s thrilling to know I’ll get to spend forever with him, but sometimes I start thinking about just how long forever is and I freak myself out a bit.  🙂

@JustAnotherBee:  All of a sudden, yes I’m scared. I know he’s the one, but I’m worried my parents/some friends will think we’re moving too fast (we’ve been together a little over a year) and that’s making me second guess myself.
He has the the ring, I’m pretty sure he’s proposing before Xmas, and it’s just become very real. My stomach is in knots right now! Wedding planning scares me too. I’m terrible at party planning. I think we all need to go drink a bottle of wine and relax lol

I’m a little scared too. We finished e-ring shopping today, and a proposal is imminent (like within the next 1-3 months, depending on how long the ring takes). We’ve been together for 3 years, lived together for 1, and I love him like crazy – he’s such a good guy.

However, I’m surprised at how nervous I find myself on the cusp of getting engaged. I’ve never liked change (even good changes!), so the idea of getting married is exciting and exhilerating but intimidating and scary at the same time.

@JustAnotherBee:  I COMPLETELY understand how you are feeling!!!! I love my SO tremendously. We have been together for 7 years, and I’ve been waiting probably about 3 years now. I am so ready for us to settle down and start a live together. At the same time, I am so nervous about getting married. It isn’t that I am doubting that he is the one, it’s just like you said, it is suck a huge life step! My parents are divorced, so I don’t know if that has something to do with it. Also, I am a very independent person, and I don’t want to lose that. I don’t think I will, but I guess I’ve been so used to not being married now (I’m 32) that I cannot begin to imagine what it would be like. That being said, I am excited at the same time. I love that guy and can’t wait to share my life with him!

@JustAnotherBee:  I think it’s normal to feel scared/nervous, as long as it’s not a huge fear 🙂
