So initially we had settled on a 2 1/2 year engagement getting married in September 2014. Mainly because i didnt like the idea of getting married in 2013. Then it hit me…13 is an unlucky number for me not 2013 so why ae we waiting?
My mother has always thought 2014 seems a very long way off and it worried she will look too old in the photos and has often mentioned to us why dont you get married next year instead.
I spoke to the Fiance last night and put forward the idea of moving the wedding forward by 1 year and he is surprisingly up for it. (FI is desperate to start a family so it was either child before marriage of move the wedding forward!)
So i have spoken to my venue who have said they have no Saturdays available next September but do have Fridays. All of my family will be travelling 100+ miles for our wedding but i figure if they really want to be there, a friday wedding shouldnt be a problem…right? after all, we all took a friday off for my cousins wedding in London to get there the day before in case of traffic).
So now its kind of hit me, we could be getting married next year…so much to do!!

Yeah, I definitely wouldn’t put your life plans on hold over a silly number, especially if you want kids soon! I’d definitely choose a Friday wedding over waiting another year if I were you.

Go for it. I am sure your family will take the time off and come.

I don’t see why you wouldn’t get married in 2013 b/c of the number. I’m TTC and I’m not worried if I happen to have a baby in 2013. Life works in mysterious ways! I definitely think you can pull it off in a year and you’ll be married one year sooner….how exciting!

Well today i booked the venue and the registrar for Friday 6th September 2013. I called and spoke wih my mum last light who was very excited about the idea of moving it forward, then the Fiance called his mum…her reaction was upsetting for me. She couldnt understand why we wanted to move the date forward, the Fiance told her that we dont want to wait 2 years plus it will save us some money, to which she replied but i thought money was no object. My parents are footing the bill and if i can save them some money i will but she just said it all seems very strange to me and started going on about her holiday (that isnt booked) being ruined and its a silly idea and won work. It seems that every detail my other half and i get excited about his mum puts a downer on. She complained about our food choices being too heavy for her and she wants chicken not pork. (its an autumn/harvest theme wedding so pork and apple cider sauce is perfect). She complained about my chosed colour scheme saying she doesnt suit any of those colours. I go a bit upset last night and said to my OH that he needs to speak to his mum about my feeling, but he doesnt like confrunting her.
Eugh so much emotion, but its booked now anyway so tuff luck!!
