    Heck no, I don’t think it’s bad.  I had the date picked before we were engaged too ๐Ÿ™‚

    i don’t think it’s bad luck. and since your bf is in agreement, i don’t see any problems. Just don’t get your heart absolutely set. So many things can happen, even once you are engaged, that force you to move it.

    Wow, we must be long lost twins. I too, have been with my Boyfriend or Best Friend for about 5 1/2 years, we have an August 2012 date set (our 7 year anniversary as well, crazy!), and are getting engaged…well I guess that entirely up to him. probably end of the year, or early 2011.

    So to answer your question, of course I don’t think it’s weird! Tongue out

    nope, i don’t think it’s bad luck. the mister and i decided on a date in 2012 too even though we’re not formally engaged. it’s good that your boyfriend is in agreement so that should take away any doubt in your mind about it being lucky or not. just go with it!

    I think it’s such a long time ahead that you may get yourself obsessed with the wedding planning and stress on it before you should. But I think it’s good to have a date in mind and a great idea to talk about it so you can start saving the $ for it.

    “engaged” means that you have the intent to mrry and you are planning a wedding. You don’t need a ring, but for many of us, that makes it official. We are “engaged” because we have already picked a date, booked a venue, and I have a DIY project list. ^_^

    Not bad luck at all! I can’t believe some people have voted for that! As long as you don’t go booking anything or telling people then I think it’s great to have a set date in mind to work towards, I’m not quite engaged yet but we have both decided that spring 2012 would be perfect for us as we graduate next june. It’s only just over 1 1/2 years.

    Nope!! I had this date set in my head wayyyy before my Fiance proposed. Like you, we are getting married on our 7 year dating anniversary… Just one week after you!! (How weird is that??)

    Fiance and I talked about getting married a lot and I knew that a proposal was coming so I had no problem gathering ideas for our wedding before we were engaged.

    Welcome to the bee!

    I say once you’re both in agreement with everything go right ahead. Nothing to jinx, the way you describe it you basically decided to get married already at this point the ring is just a technicality. Good luck and welcome to the hive!

    To me this comes down to – does he agree? 

    If you’ve both agreed to get married in June 2012, then to me, you’re engaged. That’s a commitment to get married, and the ring can come later or not at all. It’s a symbol, not the be-all-end-all!
