I can’t comment on the boobs things, that’s a personal choice.

But 13 months is tons of time to plan a wedding.  I’d go for one year rather than 2.

@Allyg:  I know you must be busy with two little ones, but if you are a stay at home mum I reckon you could plan the wedding fine in a year 🙂 I wouldn’t stress about it. If I were you I would go to the library and get some wedding books/magazines out and take it one step at a time. There are plenty of very helpful wedding websites out there as well that can help you with planning things month by month!

If 2 years is too long for your SO, why not compromise with something like April 2015? That way you will have 18 months to plan, which is between the amount he would like and the amount you would like 🙂

We’ve had a longer engagement but there’s really not much that you can do outside of a year. You can’t send invites, bridesmaids can’t be expected to care about their dress 2 years out, your wedding dress can’t be fitted, some places won’t take bookings so far out. You would have plenty of time if you aim for 2014.

To me, a year is the ideal amount of time! 🙂

@Allyg:  i planned mine in 8 months.  i could have done it in 6 months. i work full time.

it is a personal choice, but a year is plenty long enough to plan a wedding.
