Did this happen to, or is happening to, anyone else? We had a shorter engagement (6 months) and during that time it seemed like we just quit playing twister altogether. I think we both just had so much on our minds that we stopped making time for each other. I honestly started to get a little worried… but, now that we’re married and the stress of the wedding isn’wet looming overhead, we’re thankfully, back into the swing of things!

After a pregnancy scare, my SO and I decided to stop deliberately until we’re married. Some things are worth waiting for…and with as busy as the next year ten months are going to be, it’s just as well we won’t be trying to squeeze “private time” in!
If nothing else, it’s a great gift for after the wedding, and a great motivator! 😉

I have had the opposite “problem” (if you could call it that!). We are scrambling at the end here to get everything done because we keep getting distracted… We had a 5 month engagement.

Yeah, we’ve experienced the opposite. We were going to try to take a break a week or two before the wedding and it’s just not going to happen!

My FI said last night that he thought maybe we should take a break for this last week. I laughed, but maybe he wasn’t joking o.O!!

this happened to us too. we’re a couple months away from the wedding now and finally starting to let go of some of the stress and enjoy time together more.

- Wedding: June 2010 - Ceremony - First United Methodist Church; Reception - My parents' house!
We went through a period around the t-minus-one-year mark where it was a little dry. I was super freaked out because it seemed like OH SHIT JUNE WEDDING EVERYBODY IS GETTING BOOKED UP and was just a nervous wreck. It’s hard to feel sexy when you’re that stressed out.
We’ve gotten a lot of stuff done, and my whole family is trying really hard to help me relax, and we’re actually having fun. 🙂 My fiance and I are also reaping the benefits of reduced stress, and are actually acting like bunnies– moreso than before the dry spell. :p

Yeah, we’re a little dry, but it’s been like this since about 6 months ago…before we were engaged. We work opposite shifts and he is usually in class when I go to bed at night, so it’s pretty interesting trying to squeeze in any alone time!
