So here is the general timeline that we have discussed. Right now I am a fulltime Nursing Student working part time as a Nursing Assistant, and he is a full time Pre-Physical Therapy student working as a full time server. Needless to say we are both very busy and very low on funds! Therefore we have decided to get engaged late next summer/early fall. We both graduate this Summer, so we will have the money then to get engaged. We are planning a beach wedding for April/May 2013, which we will prob. secretly start planning before we actually become “officially” engaged so we have time to get everything done! So right now I should be engaged and married in the next 1 1/2 years, which I am so excited about! But I am sooo ready to be engaged and married, it is so hard to even wait that long! Thanks to Weddingbee I practically have my whole wedding planned anyway! Haha. Oh well, I know we will never regret getting a good start on our education and careers before spending money on a wedding. It is still very difficult to wait tho! Thanks for listening to my rambling vent, or whatever this is! 🙂

Congrats on the discussion! It’s a big step to decide on dates and when you would like to be engaged. Stay focused on school as much as possible, it’ll help with the waiting. And visit weddingbee as much as you need to. It’s been really helpful during my waiting.

Thanks! I’m really happy that he is open to discussing dates and everything seriously. Luckily school keeps me very busy so it really does help, and I am sure I will be on Weddingbee a lot in the next year! I know the time will go fast, but at times it just seems so so slow!

I know how you feel. My SO told me he wants to be engaged within the next year but I’m ready to be married already. It is hard trying not to bring it up to him constantly! Keep focusing on school and other things and the time will fly by!

Congrats to next year’s engagement and wedding. Good study and career are basic for your life in the future. Be patient, girl. Start your engagement and wedding planning now so that you will enjoy the time before your wedding and you will never think waiting is hard for you. Hope you happy to the wedding.

I think the downside of timelines is that you know exactly how long you will be waiting for, but.. because you do, the wait seems to drag! I know how you feel, I am hoping the next few weeks/months fly by for me as well! 🙂
