You could start getting a feel for what kind of wedding you want. 

For example, you could look at photographers and see what style(s) of photography you prefer; do the same for other vendors, locations, types of weddings, and attire. Just look around, see what things you lean towards, and keep them in mind for when the wedding planning really begins. 

For some people, this might make the wait longer, but it’s a good thing to do if you can. It can make the actual wedding planning process easier.

Just go on living your life and try not to think about it.  Focus on your relationship with him and with your children instead.

Good luck! Watching entire Netflix series helps me a bunch as I wait. What’s your usual TV genre? I’ll try to give some suggestions

I’m in the same boat! He said he was ready to propose (we have been engaged before to each other but decided that it wasn’t right for the time) and he would like to do so really soon, but only when I don’t suspect it. IT’S KILLING ME! We’ll have been together for 4 years in the spring and are moving into our new house in January! Good luck!

As supportive as people are on here, with your timeline, I recommend not being on these forums! June 15th is still over 6 months away, and reminding yourself of wedding things might make it worse…

However, this is a total “do as I say, not as I do”-type thing.  I thought my proposal was coming much earlier than it did, so these forums definitely did’t help.

Free2bme:  I think, well on my side, that he wants to make it special, and I think we are just looking forward to it! In the mean time I try to stay occupied some other way, but that’s easy for me, I have a new house to decorate!

I was just like you a couple weeks ago. I was on Pinterest all the time planning my wedding which only made the anticipation worse. My SO eventually proposed sooner than he planned to ease my mind and it wasnt as special as he planned (he wanted to have our room decorated in rose petals when we go on vaca in January) the proposal was still very sweet and romantic but it wasn’t what his original plan was. Sooo I now feel bad that my wedding fever caused him to change his plans for me, so my advice is that it’s not easy to wait and the only thing I can suggest is picking a new hobby that is NOT WEDDING RELATED to take your mind off of things (like learning a new thing Yoga? Sewing? Cooking? or joining a book club? Literally anything to keep your mind off weddings!!) and don’t rush your SO because you will look back and realize the anticipation was worth it!!

I’d start wedding planning. June to Dec. is not a lot of time. I’d get a head start. Just don’t put any money down.

Sorry, I don’t have any words of wisdom- but I’m there in the waiting boat with you! So you’re not alone at least
