- Wedding: May 2016
YAAAAY!!!! Its soooo EXCITING!! My boyfriend of 3 1/2 years proposed!!! He was really sneaky about it to because he planned it around my birthday so I had no clue whatsoever lol. Anyway, we are planning on having a bit of a longer engagement (between a year and a half to two years) but my parents, mainly my mom, is bugging me about doing the engagement party. I want the party to be very laid back and casual because thats how both me and my fiance are. I was think of doing a BBQ or Picnic for the party. The thing is we live on Long Island, NY so that limits the time to no later than end of September for an outdoor affair. Another limiting factor, my parents want to organize the party but they are going away on a cruise for 2 weeks begining of September.
Here is where is am lookingg for some advice……what are your thoughts on us waiting until March or April (about 9 month after he popped the question) to do the engagement party. I figured its going to be at least a year before our wedding without a doubt but I want to get other people’s opinions. Thanks 🙂
