I always used to say.. when were ready. Things are a little hectic,  *insert polite smile here* or just say the year.. I said.. sometime in 2010 also when I didnt have our date set.

everyone in my town seems to get married within 6 months of engagement. So everyone was suprised when ours would be 13 months 🙁

– Whenever you feel like donating to the “weddings are damn expensive fund”

– After we win the lottery

I am a fan of “it’ll happen when it happens”  or “when the moon is blue and the grass is purple”.  I’d probably just make crazy reasons.

I think I told my older sister: “We’ll get married when me sh!t turns purple and smells like rainbow sherbet!” from Super Troopers. She laughed so hard that she forgot what we were even talking about.

We didn’t pick a date until about 6 months into our engagement.  I just told people that once things calmed down we’d pick a date (I was in the middle of moving and changing jobs).  I think your living in sin idea still applies if you want to be witty.

“When we’re rich”

“When the planets have aligned accordingly”

and then change the subject 🙂

“September of 2015.”  Try to keep a straight face.
“Yes, seriously.”  Straight face.

If you’re comfortable saying that you’re waiting a while because you need to save money, I think that’s completely okay. Weddings can be very costly, and I think everyone understands that.

I know a couple who got engaged in college, spent more time and money on school than either of them had planned, and then lived with her parents for a year after graduating, to save money. They just recently moved into their own apartment and will be getting married this August.  By the time they’re married, they will have been engaged for over four years. Don’t sweat it!

Just like @MightySapphire I was going to suggest Nov. 3rd, 2018- with a straight face- and then just blink at them. :o) Tooo funny!

How about “We have our hearts set on both a Saturday and February 29th, so we’ll need to wait until 2020”?

you can always say, ” good things take time, we are still deciding on a few things before we share the date with everyone, but thanks for the well wishes!”

I hate this question too


I never have a good answer. Just something like “hopefully soon”. lol
