  • Wedding: September 2014

@Regina Phalange:  Haha. Are you planning on a short engagement? Maybe they (like you) just want to start the process already! I can’t say this has happened for me yet, because even after the proposal it’ll still be about 2 years away.

I definately do. But I’m also one of the last out of the girls I grew up with to get engaged/married and I will have been dating my SO for 7 years this September. My parents are wanting it to happen, my dad told me to start thinking about songs, entrances and resorts and he constantly gives me ideas. I told him that it might be awhile and he’s like “But I have the money now!” LOL. But it’s nodything negative – people just want to see my SO and I take the leap already 🙂

Tell those people to butt out! Because when it is your day, it’s what YOU want, nobody else. The day is about you guys.

No, fortunately not! Everyone’s busy planning their own weddings! Though my mom is starting to get awfully pushy about wanting me to get engaged!

@Regina Phalange:  I am Maid/Matron of Honor in my cousin’s wedding and she is already having people complain and her wedding is a YEAR away. What I pretty much told her is, it’s her & her husbands day, if people don’t like it, they don’t have to come. Whether that means the location, the colors, the food etc. Not everyone is going to be happy with your decisions but if they love you and are a true friend/family member, they will suck it up (if it’s a color they hate) or attend (even if the location does not suit them).

My mum sent me wedding venues that she liked about a year ago. At the start of this year she called me up all stressed because she wanted to know when we were getting married so she knew how much time she had to save! We have always told them we are getting married within the next 2 years and engagement shall be sometime before then, but my mum is even more of a planner than me!

Yip – my mom. My parents own a guest house in my home town, which is about 1000 km away from where I’ve lived for 5 years.

I really don’t want to get married in my home town because all my friends have moved away from there, and hardly any of my good friends from my current town will be able to make it there, plus my SO and his family are not from there either, and it’s so far away it would be a nightmare to plan…

…but my mom keeps dropping hints about ‘having your wedding on the lawns of the guest house’. And then she sighs ‘IF you every get married’. Oh joy!

Otherwise, my best (single) friend is just desperate for me to get engaged so we can go wedding dress shopping. I think that’s kind of sweet though!

My SO’s parents have already told me they have x amount of dollars set aside… And that they only want to alot x amount to their daughter’s wedding… Which is super awkward…  They’re Asian and SO is the oldest son of the oldest son and so forth(apparently that’s a big deal?)  He threatens that he’s going to disown SO if he doesn’t have grandkids soon… And if he doesn’t propose soon, his dad is going to kidnap us and drag us to the courthouse… 

He’ll open the newspaper and pull out the jewelry ads and ask me which one I like so he can make SO go buy it…

He’s already got a guest list ready and told me to do this.. Have that.. Yada yada yada… He asks if I’m going to wear a qi pao… All that stuff… I try to be polite and say “I don’t know, I don’t want to think about that until I’m actually engaged..” but he is super pushy.

I think it really puts SO off… 

I told his dad that I think SO was waiting for his older sister to get married first.. She’s been with her man for like 10 years…. But then he got mad and said “screw them you don’t need to wait for them!”

Then I had to tell him I think SO  to is going to propose after our friend’s wedding in September so he will back off, but I don’t know what I’m going to say after that! I’m tired of defending him, he really needs to stand up to his dad or just do it already.

My mom loves my SO almost more than she loves me (kidding, sort of :P) and so she’s been harping on about an engagement for practically the entire time we’ve been dating!  Not that I mind discussing my future wedding with her at all, but it’s really funny when she starts on about it when my dad is around, because he’s of the “she’s still our little girl” mentality, haha.  It’s mostly just fun, nothing is being discussed too seriously, but it’s still funny considering my mom used to tell me not to rush into marriage!
