I just got engaged and wanted to say hi! And I already have a question 🙂 Did anyone just want to revel in their engagement joy and not worry about planning, or am I a total weirdo? I’m just so, so happy, and I’m dreading the first step of picking where it’s going to be, since FI and I are from totally different parts of the country. And once we make that decision, threre’s the whole matter of figuring out where we’re going to get the money to put a deposit down on something. Soooooo, I’m procrastinating. All I really want to do is look at my ring and read all the sweet messages we’ve gotten over and over again. So let’s do that now – here’s a ring pic. I’ll worry about logistics later!

I share your feelings. We were engaged for 5 months before I did anything wedding related… It was like I just knew it was time. After the 5 months of planning indifference, we hit it hard and decided to get married 6 months later. Our wedding is now in 4 months and I am 75% of the way done.
When it’s time, it’s time. Enjoy being engaged and thinking about what you want. It made everything much smoother and we got to enjoy our new status for awhile before worrying about all the details!

There are no rules, Just enjoy your time. If you don’t want to plan straight away then don’t. Just chill and enjoy your sparkle. It is lovely by the way. Congratulations!
