  • Wedding: April 2014

I’m getting married next April and it seems like a life time away!!! We’ve pretty much done everything because things get booked up so far in advance in the UK. i’ve got my dress too but it really feels like we have ages to go!!


Some days it feels close and others it doesnt!


everyone says it will fly by but it doesnt seem like it!!


on the other hand we have been engaged for 10 months now and that has flown by so I guess that time has gone quick but I still dont feel a step closer!


I just want it to happen now!!


But ENJOY this time being engaged. You will only be a Fiancee once πŸ™‚

I totally understand what you mean. I have already been engagged for 8 months, and still have more than a year until the wedding. It really doesn’t feel real yeat and I haven’t really had a “wow I’m getting married moment”. On the other hand, it is nice to have all this time. We’ve done some big things and put a couple deposits down, but it’s been nice to take our time. But it still feels like an intangible event that will never happen haha.

@brooke25:  Darling Husband and I were engaged for almost 3 years. Yeah, the wedding seemed forever away at first, but there’s so much stuff to do that you stay occupied! That, and life passes quickly on its own anyway. We wound up eloping so we actually got married before our actual “wedding”, so had we waited we would have wound up being engaged for three and a half years. 

Enjoy this time! Being a Bride to be is such a fun thing to tell people and there is SO much to do! Believe me, you want every minute that you can get. πŸ™‚

@brooke25:  I’m getting married in 8 weeks and it still feels like forever away!! We’ve been engaged for a year now – 14 months by the time the wedding comes around, i had most things planned about 9 months out so i’ve just been waiting for the last 7 or so months with not much to do. I think I will start getting busy in the month or weeks leading up – with things i’ve forgotten about!

Also on the working offshore thing, my dad has worked in oil rigs my entire life – 20 something years and he’s never come close to being involved in an accident – he just accepted a new job in Saudi Arabia and will start after our wedding – don’t stress, it’s somethign completely out of your control, but try and focus on it being such a slim chance that anything might happen that it’s not even worth worrying about πŸ™‚

We’ve been engaged for almost a year and a half now, and it sneaks up on you SO FAST.  One minute I was saying “oh, it’s not until NEXT August” and the next I was like “it’s in a couple months” to now “it’s less than 2 weeks away!”  It felt like it was forever away for so long I nearly didn’t get my dress with enough time.  And we kept sending things late, like the Save-The-Date Cards went out about a month later than intended, and the invites went out a couple weeks later than planned.  

Now it is crazy it’s almost here, I really felt like this month would never arrive, like we’d be in engaged limbo forever!

I feel the same way! I have basically everything booked and planned but I just can’t see it. It feels like it’s just a dream that isn’t really going to happen. I’m thinking the beginning of next year it will start feeling real! Hopefully!
