Wow, mom is excited isn’t she? You aren’t an old maid, and 8months isn’t a long time!LOL My mom isn’t this crazed because she knows when i coems, it will be a small destination wedding, so no big hooplah.

I hope your mom calms down. It’ll be rough waiting for longer with her talking about it a lot.

Awww hope she calms down for you~! I would letr her know that there isn’t a proposal yet so you do not want to THINK of any planning until you get to that point. That may make her back off.

Wow.  I agree with MsMamaBear.  You are not an old maid, and 8 months is not a long time.  Please excuse me saying this, but your mom sounds a bit crazy.  If she’s like this about the wedding, what will she be like if you decide to have kids?

8 months is definately not a long time!  Maybe you could say something like “Mom, I know you’re really excited that this may lead to marriage, but we’d like to date for at least a year before getting engaged and we are not going to start planning a wedding until after we’re engaged.”  (I just made up the year part–I don’t know if you two actually have some kind of timeframe–sorry if I missed that!)  Moms can definately get overly excited sometimes 🙂 

For what it’s worth, I didn’t even meet my fiance (now husband) until I was 30 and we just got married in April when I was 33 so you can remind your mom that there are older brides out there and there is no need to rush things.

Just calmly reassure her that there is no “THE WEDDING”, but you will involve her as soon as you are, also tell her that if she keeps bringing up getting married, it will jinx it and mean it wont happen as quickly 😉

@UmbrellaMoon:  My family was the same way.  My parents got married when they were 19 and I heard jokes from them and my grandparents all throughout my 20’s that I would be an “old school marm.”
