I can talk to my boyfriend about virtually anything wedding related besides possible dates of the wedding. Some how he always ends up getting mad at me when i bring up dates. I tell him that all I am really trying to do is figure out a season. Does any of your SO’s get mad for talking dates?

Well, if you are talking to your BF and not your Fiance about it he may be a little freaked out. I waited for Nathan to start talking about getting married before I brought it up. Stop talking about it and wait for him to tell you his opinion 🙂

@ThePinkTyrant: I guess I better clear it up that I dont come out and say how about july 5 2011 or something like that.. I just ask him if he would like a spring, summer, winter or fall wedding and most of the time he is the one that brings up wedding talk in the first place. I feel like wondering what season is perfectly fine, but I guess I am wrong.

My guy doesn’t mind. Even before we started getting more serious about getting engaged I always joked about a certain date because it was the same day of the month as our dating anniversary (and in a season I want to get married in). Now I’ve brought up getting married closer, and when he thinks would be a good time, etc. He doesn’t have too much of an opinion, but it doesn’t bother him. So, sorry I can’t commiserate, but my guy doesn’t get bothered by it.

We knew our date LITERALLY the DAY after we first started talking about getting married. Another reason I love that guy!

Yeah, my FI does. But I think it’s because we are going to have two wedding dates (blame immigration :/). To be honest? Talking about dates pisses the heck outta me too! :(. It’s just not fair!

I told my FI I had already researched dates about 20 minutes after he proposed and told him April 3, 2011. He just smiled and said “whatever you want, honey.”
God I love my FI.

Maybe he is funny about it because he thinks it may ruin the surprise of an engagement?
My boy believes that you get married a year after you propose and I can’t convince him that waiting longer than a year is OK!
That said, we don’t really talk about dates as such… our wedding will either have to be in November or April – around sporting seasons. Not so much for him missing games, but for our friends so that we can make sure they are all able to come.

Yeah, mine is pretty indifferent about 3/4 of the year and does the “uh I don’t know” – I think he just thinks I should get the season I want, as long as it isn’t his busy season… he is an accountant, so january – april are off limits.
