  • Wedding: August 2015

Congratulations! I was 20 when we got engaged and will be 22 when we get married in August. I got the same reactions (acquaintances wanting to know how long we were together before he proposed and how old we are). While I think some of it was jealousy, sometimes girls especially are just genuinely interested in guaging when they can expect to get their own. 😛

I was engaged at 20! Many people will try to lecture but it’s your life, your decision. Be happy! I knew it was the right decision for us because we’re both finishing college this year so it made sense to take the next step! Congrats!! Here is my beauty!

The pink tint is from my phone case lol

Congratulations! I got engaged at 20 and married at 21, two weeks after my college graduation. My DH was 19 when he proposed and 21 on our wedding day. So very similar to your story!

  • Wedding: October 2013

I got married at 23, almost 24 which is SUPER young where I live, and really unusual amongst my social circle. I live in Toronto, with a super diverse, liberal, population, which for some reason causes the average age of first marriage to be waayyyy higher. I was the first of my friends to get married. My former best friend was the only person who voiced their disapproval though 🙁

Yipeebee:  I’m really surprised to hear you say 23 is average! It made me curious, so I looked it up: average age of FIRST marriage for women is 27 in the US and 29 in Canada, and it’s 29 and 31 for men.

hayleychristine:  Aw thanks what a nice thought 🙂 Yeah, if you live in Seattle I’m not surprised you get some shocked reactions! Best of luck to you and future DH.

Our families were supportive, which is the most important. We definitely got a lot of rude treatment from wedding vendors, and in particular jewelry store employees! A lot didn’t take us seriously or questioned if we could afford their services, be it catering or rings or whatever. Just goes to show how truly unusual it is to be married youngish where I live.
