I can sort of relate. We have made a hypothetical guest list, picked colors, looked at venues online, made a hypothetical budget, and photographers we like. He wanted to propose a couple months ago, but I hadn’t picked out the ring I liked yet, and once I did it’ll take till Christmas to arrive. He wanted to be 100% sure that i tried the ring on beforehand and fell in love with it. He really wants to propose with a ring (even though I said it didn’t matter), so I know it’ll be around the holidays. That being said, we want to get married in JUNE, which gives us only 6 months to plan once we are officially engaged (not even actually).

If that’s the case for you, planning a super quick wedding, I say it’s fair you’d wanna be on the planning ASAP. But if you are going to have the typical 12-18 month engagement, then I suggest you slow down a bit and just enjoy the engagement 🙂 Let the stress of planning come later!

You sound like me! That’s kind of how things are going for us – though we’ve always done things backwards

@sostobe:  YES! We are doing it all backwards as well! We have everything for the future all settled (wedding wise and life wise… we even already BOUGHT a house together). So I already feel engaged, and everyone calls him my husband… but he doesn’t want to be officially engaged until he can affored the ring and “do it the right way” like he says lol. He wants it to be super special and I just want to be able to finally marry him, so I don’t care how he does it! lol
