25 here! Will be 26 when we get married!
25 here! Will be 26 when we get married!
I was 21 when we got engaged, 22 now, and will be about a month shy of 23 by the time we get married. Fiance was 23 when we got engaged, is 24 now, and will be 25 when we get married.
I don’t feel as young as our ages indicate because we both have a home, 2 cats, and steady jobs within our desired career field.
Engaged at 23, will be married at 24. I get the “So young!!” Remark ALL the time! Especially since I work in a nursing home. Drives me crazy! People feel like when they see my ring it is their right to ask questions/make remarks such as “Are you sure you’re ready?” “You haven’t even lived life yet!” Or my favorite.. “You’re still babies!!” Ugh!!
Our theme is Fall. We’re doing mocha dresses, and bright oranges/reds/pinks/yellows for the flowers
We were both 20 when we got engaged and we’ll both be 24 when we get married on May 30th. We’ve never received comments about our age from anybody. We are going for a classy, elegant feel with our main colors being black and gold with touches of peach.
@future_mrs_taylor: I’m 20 and my Fiance is 21, we will be 22/23 at the time of our wedding! We’ve been living together for almost 3 years, paying our own way through university and managing a house/bills by ourselves. When we got engaged there was not much shock, it was expected given our situation (we are mature/educated/committed).
We don’t have a wedding theme, but our colours will be creams with hints of red (our countries of origin all have red/white as their primary colours!).
I’m 21! We have a few years until the wedding though so we’ll be a more “normal” age at that point. (My grandmother’s words)
I’m 20 and Fiance is 24! Youngins
We’re 21 and we’ll be 22 at our wedding, unless something goes awry.
I was 24 when we were married last year. 25 now 😀
Im 21. Occassionally I’ve had ‘wow you’re young!’, but I actually understand why people might have mixed feelings. After all, if someone was to live to say… 80 years old… To pick a person at 20 to be with for 60 years is a pretty big deal. People change fast after all. The way I always explain it, is that I used to be the person that thought 21 was too young to be engaged, and if I hadn’t met Fiance, I might still feel that way, but when you meet someone that changes your perspective, and gets under your skin, then why not? I would never rush into things, we’re having a two year engagement, but I guess it’s like in When Harry Met Sally

i was and am 23 when we got married in november 😀 never had the wow your young comment but then i had my eldest at 17 and my youngest at 21 so people probly think im older than i am OH is 27 our wedding we didnt have a theme but there was a few twig things i DIYed like centre pieces and a twig cake stand colours where light aqua blue with grey, table covers and chairs where covered black with grey sashes it looked amazing!
I’m 24 and Fiance is 23. I’ll turn 25 a few weeks after our wedding. No one has said we’re too young, but I’m definitely in a different place than my friends, who I think see it as settling down too soon. But I was also engaged before this (at 21) and people said I was really young.
Our colors are teal and chocolate with a little ivory/cream and gold when we need accents!
@future_mrs_taylor: Hello, I am 18 getting married next October to my love of life, which is only 17 at the moment.
Yes we got were too young! But who cares about them. There just jealous that you found your other half and they are still looking or were to afriad at your age.
There are always negative peolple in life and dont worry about them. You just do what you want and if they dont like it, that is they problem, not yours.
I’m 24 and will be 25 when I marry my soul mate. I do think there is a big difference between 18-21. To 25.
I believe it’s wonderful you found your soul mate but believe between 18-22 your goals should be based on self exploration finding out who you are as an individual first. That may be going to uni, starting a business, anything that is self centred.
Your engaged and that is awesome if the promises for better or worse are true. Before making life changing decisions ask be sure that person will love you no matter what.
Ask- if something bad happened would you still love me and stivk by me. would you stick by them? There should be no hesitation that answer should be simple of course you will.
And remember being engaged is special. you want to be sure it’s forever or you no one will take you seriously. This one 20 year old I know this is her second engagement. And I think its a joke to her it seems engaged means nothing.
Engaged at 21, and we are currently planning on April of 2015. So i’ll be 22!
