My boyfriend and I have decided we are getting married next June, we have bought some things for the wedding (my dress for example haha). But, he technically hasn’t asked me so I am not supposed to tell anybody!!
Obviously the invites have to go out sometime soon, november or december (right?), so I do know there is a “deadline” for him to ask but…I just can’t stop planning and talking about it and bringing it up! I am even starting to drive myself crazy! I know that he won’t ask while I am talking about it this much, I don’t think he wants me or him to feel like he was proded into it. So if I could just shut up about it….
How do you guys keep your minds busy?

Y’all have done everything except the proposal…he can’t feel proded!LOL
I don’t talk about it because I’m consumed with work and our daughter. I don’t have free time like Pre- Baby Bear. Wish I did, then I could plan some stuff.LOL

@DoctorandDrLady: If it weren’t for work and school, I don’t know what’d I’d do! Well, I suppose I’d spend all my time here like now!
I don’t think invites actually go out that early. If you’re wedding’s going to be in June, I think you only need a couple months in advance to send them out.
And I agree with MamaBear, if you’re shopping for wedding stuff, he can’t feel proded!

I talked about it a little bit to every friend and family member I had. It meant I got to talk about it a lot, but no one person felt overwhelmed.
I also have a Tumblr, so a lot got mentioned there.

My wedding is March and sending out invites end of oct/early nov – which is SUPER early. We’re only doing it then because my wedding planner advised it since it’s right over the holiday season. Our RSVP deadline will be Feb 1st for a March 23 wedding.

I tell myself that pre-panning is like playing video games…If I have time to do it, then I should be doing something better with my time..

Ok so update!!
I was sooo good and didn’t talk about, I just really focused on Thanksgiving and that it would be the perfect time to tell everyone so it will happen. Also, the Holiday Season is starting and it’s going to happen. I just used this as a mantra.
Well…after like 2 weeks of me being really good, I noticed my SO getting more and more happy and light around me. Then we went out on a nice dinner and after we took a walk in the snow where he got down on one knee!!
I am engaged!! Take me off the list!!! ( I think I fell off the list already since I was really confused about the rules haha)

Congratulations!!! I have no wedding date or any such concrete anything in place but maybe I’ll work more on keeping quiet. But gosh it is hard!

It’s super hard not to talk about it! I’m good most of the time, with the exception of my best friend who knows everything, but get a few drinks in me and everyone knows.
