I never saw myself as someone who would get married (too independent, never dated much, etc.) When I was younger I was very shy and dreaded the idea of a wedding. Until maybe a couple months before I got engaged, I never really even thought about my wedding would be like. I always hear that “little girls always dream of their wedding” – I certainly was not one of them. Were you? Did you dream about your wedding specifically or the marriage itself? And where did you get your ideas from (TV, your mom, movies???)

I seriously never thought about my wedding day until my FI and I had been seriously dating for about 3 years. The women in my family have never been really into the whole dream wedding thing, they seriously all either eloped or went to city hall or never legally married at all so this is a novelty to all of us. That’s why its so exciting!

Nope, didn’t start thinking “Wedding” until after the engagement. I used to think that I wouldn’t ever get married, I liked being single too much!

I have been engaged twice… and with the first one I had a very hard time imagining the wedding. I could’nt piece it together and couldnt make decisions or anything.
But now, being engaged to my actual soulmate it is much easier. I’m not sure if it’s because I can see the marriage so I can see the wedding… or if it’s becuase I don’t care what anyone else thinks of the “production” part. 🙂

I have always dreamt of getting married. Not necessarily the wedding day in all its details, but being at the altar and promising unconditional love and commitment to someone fabulous (while wearing a gorgeous gown!); that has always been in my head, yes!! Hopeless romantic…

Ha…I think you need to have an option for “No”. I never really did and I still wouldn’t say that I “dream” of it now. If I had my choice I would elope or do something very simple and small. The only reason we are having a more traditional wedding is because my FI wants it…and I’m just trying to make the best of it!

Not really. I would date guys and maybe the thought of “can I see myself married to him?” would cross my mind. That answer was NO until I met FI. 🙂 Now I’m kinda wedding-obsessed, lol!

@ Tulip – ha ha good point! I went ahead and added “no” – I had left it off originally because I had figured that if people were on this site they must be dreaming of their wedding!

I’ve been engaged before, but never actually pictured the wedding or what marriage would be like. I’ve never been one to plan my dream wedding or even one to want to be married. Once I started to plan after my FI and I got engaged, its all coming together. I can see our wedding and our marriage. 🙂

I said, “Other.” I really didn’t dream of my wedding day, even after getting engaged. I was excited about being married, but not so much about the day itself.
ETA: Oops, missed the last choice!

FI and I dated for about 3 years before I ever even thought about a wedding. I started a new position coordinating events, and become fascinated by the weddings. Then I started thinking about ours. Luckily FI proposed soon after 🙂
But now, wedding planning has lost the appeal. I feel sort of out of it, I do it so much for work that it feels like a job.
