Today, while FI and I were doing spring-cleaning yard work, we discovered some wild climbing roses had taken over a corner of the property. We were so excited! I can use them in my bouquet! But even though I’ve found those and some other places to pick blooms I can use, I’ll still need to buy some of the roses I want for my bouquet, boutonnieres and corsages, and a few flower arrangements.
I’m glad to have a short engagement for many reasons, but I have sometimes wished I could have had more than a year, so I could’ve planted ALL the roses I wanted for my wedding.
What would a longer engagement have enabled you to do differently?

ha! My Mom and I were just talking about this an hour ago. I’m also having a short engagement (6 months), and if we’d had a longer engagement, I would have done more DIYs. And…I probably would have been a lot more stressed.
I’ve created our invitations (I’m a former graphic designer), and the only thing I wish I had more time on were the invites. But I’m really happy with what I designed, so I guess my answer is nothing- I’m happy with what we’ve planned- more time would have meant more stress/possibly second guessing our decisions.

True – I’d probably by trying to do way more DIY, and thus giving myself more stress.

I had a 5 month engagement. If I’d had a year, I could’ve probably saved more money (maybe not, though), and tried to have a sit-down lunch or a bar. I’m sooooo glad I didn’t do that though, because my family is totally unreliable when it comes to RSVPing, and there wouldn’t have been enough seats. People just brought people…I would’ve been soooo stressed.
And yeah, I probably would’ve tried to do more details, and been more stressed out too. I’m an anxious person, so just getting it done was best for me. 🙂

I wonder sometimes if I could have found better deals by having more time to search. I know we’re paying more than we’d have to for some things, but we just don’t have time to keep looking for the better deal. It’s already like a second job!
