Your original date is my date! I can totally imagine the shock of it being suddenly 5 months away! Youve got this though!

Sometimes my Fiance and I talk about moving our up too.. because a year and a half is SO damn LONGGGG !! But i find it going by quick and its going to be big!

My Future Sister-In-Law got married with a 5 month engagement (planned for 150 people, showers, bought a house, furnished it, etc.) and were just fine!! It sounds like your planning process isnt complex, you just need to get moving and make sure you have a detailed plan/ timeline. I would plan as if you are getting married a few weeks earlier than you are so that you have a  buffer in case you go over or forget some last minute details. I know it can be overwhelming and it is so easy to forget things. This is what my Future Sister-In-Law Said about hers and it went just fine and she had time to spare and wasnt stressed last minute

Congrats! You are going to be a wife so soon!

You can def make 5 months work! It is prob better tgat way anyways bc once you make a decision you have to move on and you will not have time to second guess yourself. If you haven not already, get going on the dress situation. Congrats!!

a year and a half engagment was a long time considering how long we’ve been discussing marriage

a) A year and a half is pretty normal; planning takes time and money, and vendors often book out far in advance. 

b) Why is he being swayed by the lady who cut his hair?

I have the same issue because my Fiance is in the military and he has changed the date twice. I am waiting to see what the newest date is because his tour seems to be extended. I have not idea at present but I have learn to roll with the punches.

Ahhh! Crazy, but totally doable. I wish I had a shorter engagement so I didn’t have time to change my mind 50 million times before the actual day.  Make sure you can get an acceptable photographer and caterer, and the rest will be a piece of cake 🙂
