@bellarex:  You are so normal. Marriage is a HUGE life change, and people tend to resist change, even the good kind. When it happens you might have to take baby steps before you start to feel comfortable.

I feel a bit of the same way, even though I will be having an elopement-style wedding. It still means life is turning a new page and the previous parts of the book are over.

I hope you have fun with the process! 🙂

TOTALLY normal! I felt the same way when I knew he had the ring.. if you feel you need to talk about it go for it. I tell my Fiance everything and I told him I was feeling nervous and he told me he understood etc etc.

Its a big step! As long as you know he’s still the one don’t worry about a little nerves 🙂

I think that you are just getting nervous because you know that it is coming.  Marriage is a big step and it is normal to get cold feet.

I don’t think that it is any reason though to tell him to put off the engagement if it does happen.  A wedding doesn’t happen overnight.  So you can always go with a longer engagement.

Is it within your personality to kind of freak out when you’re going through a big life change?  If so, then I think it’s normal.  I’ve certainly had the same feelings and typically do when ever I have to make big decisions like this.  Even when I moved into my current appartment I was so excited to sign the lease, then for the next week I was absolutely sure that it was the wrong decision.  I’m just a bit scared of change.
