Your original date is my date! I can totally imagine the shock of it being suddenly 5 months away! Youve got this though!

Sometimes my FI and I talk about moving our up too.. because a year and a half is SO damn LONGGGG !! But i find it going by quick and its going to be big!

My FSIL got married with a 5 month engagement (planned for 150 people, showers, bought a house, furnished it, etc.) and were just fine!! It sounds like your planning process isnt complex, you just need to get moving and make sure you have a detailed plan/ timeline. I would plan as if you are getting married a few weeks earlier than you are so that you have a  buffer in case you go over or forget some last minute details. I know it can be overwhelming and it is so easy to forget things. This is what my FSIL Said about hers and it went just fine and she had time to spare and wasnt stressed last minute

Congrats! You are going to be a wife so soon!

You can def make 5 months work! It is prob better tgat way anyways bc once you make a decision you have to move on and you will not have time to second guess yourself. If you haven not already, get going on the dress situation. Congrats!!

a year and a half engagment was a long time considering how long we’ve been discussing marriage

a) A year and a half is pretty normal; planning takes time and money, and vendors often book out far in advance. 

b) Why is he being swayed by the lady who cut his hair?

I have the same issue because my FI is in the military and he has changed the date twice. I am waiting to see what the newest date is because his tour seems to be extended. I have not idea at present but I have learn to roll with the punches.

Ahhh! Crazy, but totally doable. I wish I had a shorter engagement so I didn’t have time to change my mind 50 million times before the actual day.  Make sure you can get an acceptable photographer and caterer, and the rest will be a piece of cake 🙂
