@Seashells7:  it’ll go by fast, I promise and you’ll be wishing you had more time! 

The first few months are busy booking venues and vendors.  Then, there’s a lull in planning for a few months – use this time to research your color scheme and pull together your overall vision.  Then after the lull goes by, you’ll be back in full swing planning mode and feeling super rushed and pressed for time!  

You’ll get there – we all go through it!

I know the feeling. When you want to get married…you want to get married!!! I actually had a friend who proposed to his GF, and then they decided that instead of waiting a year, they just got married the next weekend. Haha.  But if you think waiting is best for you, wait.

I know personally, we’ve had a lot of temptation to elope. But once we sent out save the dates we felt obligated to have the wedding. But now I’m getting excited for the social aspect of a wedding. 🙂

Is living together before you are married not an option?

I feel like I am so excited I can barely wait too…I am trying to enjoy life until the day. . I’m older. . We live together and I just want to be wife.   I am going out to eat more, exercising and being with people. I would elope but I am having a nice party in the yard on our 6th anniversary.   We aren’t having children,  I already have adult children and grandchild.   But each day is a day closer..♥

@Seashells7:  I had the same feeling just today.  I was like, maybe I could move it to June 2013 since we haven’t sent out STDs or anything!  But then I just remind myself that it would be too stressful to move it forward, blah blah blah.  I know just how you feel, though. 

One thought that keeps me going is that my fiance’s cousin got engaged last spring (2012), and they set their wedding for June 2013.  I remember thinking that it sounded like FOREVER when they set it, and now I look at the calendar and realize we should start thinking about making travel plans for their wedding and I’m like, where has the time gone!  So I tell myself that I will have the same feeling about my own wedding in no time. 🙂
