I’m looking forward to being taken seriously. We’re young, and every time I say “my fiance” someone tries to change it to “my boyfriend”. Makes us pretty upset. My doctor is the worst about it.

I am also looking forward to just being together legally. I would hate for something to happen to one of us, and the other couldn’t do anything  because we are not married.

In every other aspect, we practically are married, so not too much is going to change in our lives. We have been though some major ups and downs, and I would say our love grows every day, even after 5 years 🙂

Bettyboo1982:  I felt the same way before my wedding (4 weeks ago today:-)). my DH and I were living with my sister and her family (5 kids). we were living there temporarily because we were new to the area and had a placed lined up for after the honeymoon…then about 6 weeks before the wedding, DH got offered a better position in the Midwest region, so we’re were moving to Wisconsin……after the wedding and honeymoon.

And my wedding was in Michigan (where we are from)….so after doing the math we realized it would be cheaper to sell our stuff (huge hassle,) and fit what we could in our cars and head to Michigan for the wedding and then head  to Wisconsin. I don’t think I have ever been soooo stressed out in my life! Oh, we also spent a month at my parents place, 2 weeks before the wedding, and 2 weeks after.

I loved my wedding day and still had some after wedding blues even though I thought I wouldnt. my life is so much quieter and less stressful now and I love having our own place again, and not having to make sooooo many decisions. And I love calling him my husband, im still not used to it! :-). however, looking back, I wish I would have just embraced the stress and enjoyed it some more.  The month before is crazy! But it will be over before you know it:-)

Being Mrs. S. – sharing a last name with my two favorite boys.

Calling him my husband.

Officially being a stepmother.

Being a true unit – we’ve worked hard to reach unit status, but it will be legal.

Watching our plans for the future unfold <3

I am not getting married until May 2015, but I am excited for…


Becoming the wife to the most amazing man

Getting off birth control to start trying for a baby

Having money to redo the house, vacations, etc.

Not having to work so much overtime to pay for the wedding

I know I will be sad afterwards though, just because I have had fun planning the wedding.

damarajade:  I hear ya! FI and I already live together, but I’m looking forward to officially being stepmom. In my heart they are both my babies ( though they aren’t really babies), but when I talk about them, I stop short and say his children.

SherryBlossom78:  It’s funny because the little one and his mother already call me his stepmom!  But when I refer to him as my stepson to anyone outside of the blended family, they always call me out/correct me.  It’s like they assume that I’m getting ahead of myself or they act like they are personally offended.  Being official will make things so much easier… especially since I’m so involved in his life anyways!

I’m looking forward to wedding planning being over! We already live together so I get to wake up to him all the time 🙂 

I’m also ready to never have to call him my “fiance” again! For some reason I just don’t like the word! It makes me feel pretentious. I have no idea why. I think “husband” will roll off the tongue a bit easier for me!

And I’m ready to wear my wedding ring all the time 🙂

We are waiting until I finish school and we get settled into careers to start having babies so even though I’m looking forward to that we aren’t quite there yet!

I’m ready to have more time with each other and learning how to function in a home together. We will have been living together for 6 months before the wedding, but we still haven’t gotten the hang of the grown up life yet. (Doesn’t help that I work overnight full time and am a full time student.) Once wedding planning is out of the picture I think it will really help us get our lives together!


T-minus 62 days!



OH. And let me not forget the 7 day cruise honeymoon. That’s almost the most important part 😉 After 4 years of undergrad that included 4 years of long distance, starting a full time job, and then starting another degree full time while wedding planning… I NEED A VACATION. And FI has put up with me for the past almost 2 years of engagement (He is calling this year the “Year of tears”. What can I say… I’ve been stressed.) He deserves a vacation too 🙂

Bettyboo1982:  One of my coworkers always calls him my husband and I had to joke with her that she had to knock it off so it would be special when it happens. we moved in together after getting engaged so the only change with marriage would be combining bank accounts. that is a weird thing to look forward to though. I definitely look forward to calling him my husband. What I’ve realized with being engaged is no one calls him my fiancé- I get husband or boyfriend from most people

I’m looking forward to having his name. To start planning the next stage of our lives, getting a house starting a family and planning our delayed honeymoon. 

I don’t think daily life will change we already live together and have joint bank accounts.
