Engaged at 20 will be married by 21. He is a year older than me and yes  We also get the looks, specially because we look even younger than what we actually are

I’m 19 too. Getting Married July 26th!! So excited πŸ™‚ 

There are a lot of people in college who think we are crazy and about equal to that amount people that think we are the luckiest people in the whole world.

I get people all the time asking if I’m pregnant though which gets old real fast!

@livelaughlove245:  I get asked the same thing! I’ve been engaged for about a year and a half, if I was pregnant when we got engaged I think I would have popped out a baby by now!

We’ll be married at 25. I want a very black tie, classic, gatsby-esque opulant wedding. Black and white with hints of metallics and nude/beige. I hate trends so I am trying to keep things very clean and traditional.

19 (SO close to 20 though) and I will be 21 when I’m married πŸ™‚ we plan on having a smal destination wedding in CA, and I want a totally belonged out dress because it has always been my dream… Peach and aqua blue ceremony colors. 

We are going to have a huge reception upon our return for friends and family since only about 20 people will be with us. That is going to be an outside country vibe, with lilac and kelly green for the colors. It’s so hard because I am a city girl from Chicago, but I was thrown into the country before high school and I LOVE it! I feel like the ceremony and reception differences are perfect for us!

20 and will be 21 when i get married (SO will be 22) most of the negative comments are from vendors that seem shocked at our age and why we are getting married young. My fiance and I will have know each other 10 years almost to the day when we get married and have been best friends for that same amount of time (it wasnt until after highschool we realised how we felt about one another) so for us, it feels like we have already been through and shared soo much together that i dont feel so young, only when people ask how old we actually are. We already have bought a house together and so getting married just feels right and like the next logical step for us. So many people i know have babies at a young age and people dont bat and eye lash but for some reason getting married ‘young’ seems to be the taboo thing (though that is getting into a whole different ball park of conversation) I think as long as you are doing what you feel is right for you and your SO then thats all that matters πŸ™‚

Im 21 and getting married on august 24 this summer!! So excited. We’ve been together 3 years coming on 4. The theme is gothic elegance and our colors are ivory, burgundy and black. Mostly ivory and burgundy tough. Were having an intimate wedding, only 35 people. Its at a historic victorian bed and breafast and the ceremony is being held in the gardens there and reception also in the gardens. Sort of a high tea lunchon (I had to fight my Fiance for that one but i got it). Everythings finally coming together, the only thing we’re really waiting on is my Fiance wedding band and 2 of the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses =D

I was 19 when we got engaged and I’ll be 21 when we get married. I get looks, but most of them are from people who don’t know us as a couple. All of my family is very supportive. Most everyone in my family got married young so it’s not uncommon. Most people I get told ‘don’t do it!’ from are outsiders who don’t know us and are pretty much anti-marriage. We’re both extremely happy though. Our colors are royal blue, aqua, and white, and we sort of have a romantic theme due to it being in an old house with chandeleirs and hand-painted ceilings, though we are incorporating Disney slightly because I’m obsessed. πŸ˜‰

@sablemuse That’s a really great comment! Thanks for that, gave me lots to think about πŸ™‚ These things are always on my mind though… I feel like I have just gone through learning some of these lessons myself.


We got engaged at 23 and 24, will be married at 23/24 and 25 (not sure yet whether it’s going to be the week before or after my 24th birthday this year!)

 

I don’t think I look that young, but my Fiance definitely looks younger than 25! He has curly blond hair, that must be it, lol. People do a double take when he mention that he’s getting married in a few months. What do you think, do we look our ages?

 

 

We don’t feel that we are too young at all, and the ONLY negative response we’ve gotten is from my ex-best friend, who was the only person in my life unsupportive of our relationship. πŸ™

 

However, we are “young” by the standards of our social circle, who are mostly grad students or in professional school (law, med, etc.). None of our friends are married yet even though many are closer to 30. Has anyone else experienced being the first in their friend circle to marry, even if you’re not necessarily that young?

 

Also, this is kind of random, but I might be in a pretty rare position in getting married at a younger age than my mother was! She married at 26. I feel like it is relatively unusual in our generation for this to happen?

@future_mrs_taylor:  Got engaged at 20, and got married two months after turning 21.  Some people asked if I was pregnant.  We have been together for seven years now, and still no kid.

I was 21 when I got engaged and married. My husband was 18 when he proposed, and 19 when we got married. I got more of the impression that we were “too young” from co-workers more so than family members.

I will admit, I thought that maybe were too young or rushing things, but we’re going on two years of wedded bliss, and I couldn’t imagine my life with anyone else!

I’m 20. We will most likely be getting married in late summer of 2015, when I will be almost 23 and my SO will be almost 27. I’m sure I’m going to get comments and questions from people–especially from my brother and grandfather, who seem to think it’s ridiculous for anyone to get married before the age of 30. I’m sure I will get comments from acquaintances and strangers, too, especially because I look younger than my age–a lot of people still think I’m under 18/still in high school (I graduated 3 years ago). But I’m trying to prepare myself to brush these off. I’m confident in my decision.

I’ve been wanting purple and yellow as our colors, but it’s too soon to say for sure. We’re also thinking of having a mouse theme because we love mice and we breed them together. Smile
