We have not set a date yet, and all my friends that are engaged set their date within the first week of getting engaged.

I sort of got over it when I realized that Fiance and I already have a house and a life together and my friends set dates so fast so they can get out of their parents homes…they didn’t want long engagements because that’s longer that they have to live with mom and dad. Once I realized that they have things I don’t have and I have things they don’t have, I was ok with it.

I know what you mean. It doesn’t bother me too much but the only one that did kind of upset me a little was my college friend. In all of our other circles of friends people are already married, but in my college group of friends I was the first to get engaged and it was a really exciting time for everyone. Then a couple of weeks later another friend in our group got engaged and everyone focused on them and sort of forgot about us.  They planned their wedding for 6 months later, but it’s understandable because they had to move/work around jobs. Now we only had a 9 month engagement and I thought THAT was short! They did a few of the things that we were planning on doing with our college friends, but I’m still going to do them, it just sucks that we didn’t get to do it first. Oh well. In the end we’re married and that’s all that matters!

I’m in the same boat, but honestly, I am GLAD!

I got engaged July 9th and am not getting married until Feb 2013. That’s 19 months!

I know 2 other girls who both got engaged after me and one is getting married in March, the other in April. They are both running around like lunatics trying to get everything in order and are complaining about the financial constraints.

But not me! I am taking my time with planning, doing tons of research, finding the best deals, and when I have free time, I do DIY wedding stuff. I’m spreading out what I need to purchase month to month, so I won’t have to worry about spending thousands of dollars in a short period of time.
