My SO andI were discussing future things the other day and he said that he expects us to be married by the end of next year.
We aren’t engaged yet, and he would like a short engagement. Now, that’s nice to hear and all, but when I go through my guesses for when he’d propose, I can’t envision it being before February. I don’t want a November or December wedding (my bday and xmas and turkey day are really enough to keep me busy those two months). So that leaves 8 months for an engagement. Thing is, I think it’s more likely in May or June, which would be a Very Short engagement.
I am excited, but I have been a bridesmaid/MOH enough times to know that pulling things off in such a short timeframe will be difficult.
I am happy he and I are on similar pages, but I am now freaking out a little about planning a wedding so quickly. Obviously, more conversations will be had- but how exciting!
Honestly, it’s nice that when family starts pestering us next week I will know where he stands and I will be able to just smile a mysterious smile at them instead of spiraling in the uncertainty.
I know there is some stigma to being a waiting bee, but I am so grateful to have you all to freak out to without telling my friends and family!!!
