I’m in basically the same situation. Wedding date basically decided (give or take a week) and even honeymoon decided lol. We’re just waiting for him to graduate this year to make it official 🙂

I love your wedding date! That’s awesome. Who is the nerd? 

What kind of rings are you looking at?

If you’ve got a wedding date, you’re engaged.

We did that!

It was just a mutual agreement that we’d get married by a certain time, but it was 6 months after this that he ‘popped the question’.

We didn’t tell our famillies our plans until he’d bought a ring and done the ‘down on one knee’ thing. I know people say “well if you’ve decided, then you’re engaged” but we didn’t class ourselves as engaged because we didn’t feel engaged.

We said we’d marry each other after 2 months of dating – and we certainly weren’t engaged then!

It’s good that you have a date that is important – we just picked any old date! But I promise you – from  now until proposal/ring time it’s gonna be haaaaaaaaard!

I waited 6 months and boy, that was tough!

I don’t understand because surely you are engaged if you have set a wedding date aren’t you?!

We did this too… on a much more expidited schedule. We’ll be getting “officially” engaged in the next 30 days, but we decided on July 20 (this year) as the date a couple months ago. Since the engagement is going to be pretty… SHORT… we’re getting some of the planning out of the way. Good luck to ya!

@Polyphemus:  That’s a really fun date! 3.14 is my friend’s birthday, but it seems like a great wedding date- pi is a constant and your future husband/ wife is really your constant in life. Plus it is used with circles and spheres which have long symbolized marriage (ie wedding rings)- congrats on picking a day! 

Ps And you aren’t engaged bc strangers online tell you that you are engaged, lol! Two people are engaged when both people agree to be engaged. 🙂

AW that is EXACTLY where I am with my SO. We decided to get married on pi (yay we are date twins:]) since that is my favorite number ever and a couple years is a good amount of time to plan:). I have been hoping to get married on pi since basically when we started dating 4 years ago, now I am just waiting for him to propose officially so we can get a ring ;).  YAY 3-14-15 is where it’s at 😀

That was DH and I… We talked about marriage.. Picked a date that had significance to us about 2 years away and he had to plan on proposing before the wedding date leaving me time to plan a wedding. He did do that… 11 months before our wedding date he proposed, and we announced our engagement and planned a wedding. We didn’t consider ourselves engaged until the actual proposal and announcing it to family, we just knew we would be getting married. But it did cause stress having that timeline with no engagement… It was like a countdown.. :-). Congrats on choosing the perfect date for yourselves!!!!
