I’m a teacher and the idea of getting married during the school year makes me break out in hives! We got engaged April 22, 2011 and knew we wanted a summer wedding. Summer 2011 was just too soon! Love our date but…hurry up and get here!!!

Long engagements can be trying (trust me, I speak from current ongoing experience, haha) BUT they also make it WAY more relaxing to plan! I have a friend who had a very quick engagement to wedding ratio and she was constantly stressed. We’ve just been slowly getting things done as we please. 🙂
Congratulations, by the way. 🙂

Congrats on picking a date!! You’re so close to the one year mark. I promise it’ll go by really fast after that! When we set our date, it was like 600+ days until our wedding…now it’s 265, and it is flying by!! It’ll be here before you know it. Good luck with all your planning!

Have fun planning! I’m a June 16, 2012, so I just passed my one-year mark. The first year of the engagement flew by… I feel like I’m really starting to get to work on all the details now that the big stuff is out the way – enjoy your planning!!

We got engaged the 1st week in February and we’ll be getting married the same day as you =) I feel your pain on the waiting game… but it has been nice not being rushed… =D

We are getting married the same day also and I cannot wait. We got engaged may 14, 2011 and I am trying to get as much done this summer as possible. When school starts again I will not have time. So even though there is a year away (I want it to be this june..if only) I am still feeling rushed trying to get a lot done before September and then it will really be a waiting game for the year. He really wanted it sooner, but I told him I just couldn’t do it.
How far are you ladies in your planning?

I am a teacher and got engaged two days before you and we are wedding date twins! My fiance is also a teacher so we knew there was no way we’d be getting married during the school year.

This must be a popular date for teachers…my Fiance and I have the same wedding date, and I am a teacher! I wanted to have a few weeks of summer vacation before the wedding to do last minute things. We are having a really long engagement. We got engaged 8-14-10, so it’s been almost a year! It has been nice to have the extra time to plan. I have a feeling that once the school year starts, the time is going to really fly by!

@awpeele: We got engaged on the same day and our wedding date is the same day and I’m a teacher too. And since I’ve had the summer off all of the major things have been done. can’t wait!

Amazing, all of us teachers!! I’m awpeele, but my name was too searchable, had to change it.
I said yes to the dress yesterday! SOOO excited. What do you think? I’m making it a sweetheart neckline and it works so perfectly with my mother’s veil.
