I just got engaged a few weeks ago but we havent’ set a date yet. I love the idea of a Spring 2013 wedding but my mom is pushing me to have it that fall. Logically, it is a slower time for me at work so that would make more sense but on the other hand, I’m a bit anxious about a nearly two year engagement and having to wait that long to finally be married. I waited 7 years for this engagement soI guess nearly another 2 wouldnt’ be so bad. My fiance doesn’t seem to care either way, he wants me to choose but I’m actually terrible at making decisions. What do you think? Shorter engagement and finally be married sooner, or wait about six months more and make it at a less stressful time of year workwise but probably drive myself nuts in the process having to wait that much longer?
ETA: I think what is making me upset the most about this is the having to wait six more months to finally be married to him. It would be nice to have that extra time to save and pay things off but its the nearly two year engagement that is irking me the most about it. Oh and no suggestions of comprimising and doinga summer wedding, its too dang hot and I reufse to be in a wedding dress in the heat.

I vote for less stressful time of year. Right before the wedding will already be a stressful time, make it a tad easier on yourself!
Too hot for a summer wedding? Are you in Northern California? 😀

I waited 7rs. for my proposal also..lol.. & we have been engaged for almost 3 yrs. now. Our Wedding is going to be a Fall wedding…October 20, 2012. It would be nice to have it when you are less likely to be stressed…plus you could use the extra time to plan out everything perfectly! On the other hand, if your Fiance doesn’t care either way & you think you will be real antsy having to wait that long…then have it when you want! My Fiance & I have been together so long that we feel like we are married anyways…lol!

Could you have it six months sooner and do fall 2012?
If I have to wait seven years for my engagement I would sure be annoyed at having to wait another two. I hope you can reach a compromise.

If you think you’ll be REALLY stressed handling it all by yourself (like you aren’t having a planner/coordinator and nobody in your circle of family and friends is going to do any serious helping), I say wait the extra 6 months and do it when you’ll be relaxed. But if you have a great support system and know everything will be taken care of, do it early!

@CholeLeAnn: Southern California actually 🙂
Thanks for the comments. I think we are just going to go fora less stressful time of year and wait until the fall to do it.I don’t think we’d be able to get everythign ready by this fall or else I’d do it, Goodatlove. I wish we could, but money is a big factor in all this.
