Aww that’s awesome that he is so excited, and love the photo… that’s perfect!

Even though my Fiance really wants us to be married, I think the whole wedding-day-all-eyes-on-us aspect of it is keeping him from being really excited about the day.  But when we talked about making ski-lift ticket escort cards I saw a glimmer in his eye… hopefully he’ll come around in time!

That picture made me laugh hysterically.  I feel like most guys really do want to get married, but they dread the wedding planning process.  I am not engaged quite yet (ring picked out and everything, should be soon!), but I know my SO hates being the center of attention, so like a PP said, the whole build up of the entire thing lasting months and months can be just too overwhelming for guys sometimes.  My SO said he wants a short engagement. So it doesn’t really surprise me that most guys are like this. They make us wait forever to get engaged, then when we do, all of a sudden they are tired of waiting! And when my SO explodes like a nuclear bomb (as you so eloquently illustrated in your photo), I will say “nope, you made me wait, now it’s your turn to wait!” 😀

my husband could not wait to get married!

we started talking about marriage after about 6 months, but we weren’t in a hurry and figured we’d wait a year or 2 before getting engaged.

but my mom started making wedding plans right away, haha. i told her there wouldn’t be a wedding for a couple more years, but she kept saying that she didn’t believe we were going to wait that long and that my husband would probably be the one who would get impatient because we’re in a long distance relationship (he’s in the military) and he doesn’t have any family nearby. she was right, haha.

we ended up getting engaged 6 months after having “the conversation” and the whole time he kept talking about how much he wanted to marry me and that he couldn’t wait to be my husband. it was cute. if i had left it entirely up to him, we would have gotten married in vegas the day he proposed, haha

My Fiance has suggested we just go get married now.  But then I want a wedding/reception and there is no point (to me) of spending all this money on a wedding/reception if we’re already married.

So he gets to wait.  Our engagment will only be about 1 year…which I thought would be great.  But even I’m already tired of waiting for it arrive! Smile

My Fiance asks me almost daily if we can just get married already. It’s cute.

My fi went from being “I NEVER want to be married” to “I can see myself maybe marrying you one day” to “We’ll get married one day” “Will you marry me?” in a short time span haha.

LOL! My Darling Husband did this too. We got engaged in September 2011, set a date for October 2012 and by November we had moved the wedding to March. LOL

Well, my Darling Husband would have been happy to elope. Once he knew he wanted to marry me, he just wanted to be married. Guys don’t care about weddings and details and planning.

I think you should stick with October – it’s a lovely month to get married. 🙂

Awww this is so cute. I think it literally does click overnight sometimes with men. My husband said he knew we would get married evenutally, but to him it was more abstract as if it was in the far far future. It was about two months before the wedding when everything was kicking into high gear that he was more excited about getting married than I was. That’s really saying something!

@MargaritaVille:  No we aren’t getting married at a ski resort 🙁 I wish we were.  But we both love skiing, especially my Fiance, so it’s something we want to incorporate into our wedding.

Yes, my Fiance wants to get married as soon as he finishes his tour ASAP which can be anyday now. Then he wants to have a big wedding in September 2013. Talk about pressure.

He took his time up until the proposal and then it was like bam! Let’s get married tomorrow and then go on our honeymoon. We’re 5 months out now so I think he can wait.
