I suppose i should start with the obvious, I want to marry my boyfriend of 3 years. But I know it is a bad idea at this point. I am 19 and he is 22, honestly we are not anywhere near ready financially to start a life together. Sadly that piece of practical knowlege has done nothing to quell my desire to marry the man I love. So I’m joining weddingbee. I have been ghosting on the boards for a while and I finally am ready to join the conversation. It has been frustrationg to read peoples posts and not be able to offer comfort, congradulation, advice or just put in my two cents. I love the sense of community on this site and hope I can find a place here.
(sorry about any typos. i am posting from my phone)

@ditzkitten: Hi and Welcome to the Bee! It’s a fun place.
Look at it this way, you may not be ready for marriage quite yet, but we all had to start somewhere. You’ll get lots of great ideas for your future wedding if nothing else.
Glad to have you!

Wanting something and knowing it’s a bad idea doesn’t make you a bad person, it makes you human. Let the Hive assist in any way it can!

Welcome! I have even less business being here seeing as I am not even waiting! I came on here for Maid/Matron of Honor advice and the wedding has come and gone and I am still here 🙂

@ditzkitten: Welcome!! This site definitely is a good community and a fun place, but might not help quell your wedding fever 😉

Hi and welcome I am also 19 while my SO is 23 we are in the same place since he is applying to graduate school and I am in undergrad still. I think realizing it is not feasible to get married yet only makes you more mature. There is absolutely NOTHING wrong with waiting. Sometimes waiting makes it even more special when the time comes.
Welcome to the hive 🙂 everyone here will make your waiting time much easier.

Welcome! The waiting board was such a big help when I was in that stage! I was a “Waiting Bee” for about a year and it was so nice to be able to vent to women who knew what I was going through! I hope you find the site to be just as supportive and comforting as I did! 🙂

We’ve talked about getting married but nothing concrete. All the information I have is that he definitly intends to marry me and in less than 10 years. *sigh*

I know this feeling! Around the same age range as you. My SO and I are in a LDR, same country but opposite sides, and will be until we are finished school… and even then he does not believe in living together before marriage. So I’m not sure when it’ll EVER be. The waiting boards are relieving – so many other girls like you – but also sometimes make it worse, seeing bees who have been “waiting” for less time get engaged before you. But welcome to the Bee!!

@mrsea: Oh. long distance is so hard, I am so grateful that my SO and I are geographically close. Good luck and stay strong.

There are lots of fun boards in the Not Wedding Related section (Waiting is in there too) but especially games in the Lounge and I second other PP’s, you sound like you’ve got a good head on your shoulders and the weddingbee community will be so kind to you – hopefully 😉

@ditzkitten: It’s wonderful finding another young bee! I’m 19 as well. But so is my SO. We’re kind of in the same boat as you- we’d love to get married, but we are nowhere near financially ready.

Aww! Welcome! (and what I am about to say, means absolutely no disrespect towards the younger bees).
You guys make me feel like I’m not too young to want to get married. At 22 I always feel like I must be too young to have these feelings…
