Yay!  I’m glad you spoke your mind!  Sometimes they just need to hear exactly what you’re feeling.  I don’t think guys realize how much planning is involved in a wedding-big or small either.  Hopefully you wont be waiting too much longer!

@GwenvonD:  That sounds promising! And good for you for expressing your desires.  I know how it is to be shy about such things, especially a women we tend to want the man to initiate those conversations.  But what I’ve discovered is  that when you express your needs/desires in a calm way, you have nothing at all to lose from it–and most likely a lot to gain.  I finally got up the courage to tell my SO a few months ago that I’ve been thinking of a fall wedding next year.  To my surprise he agreed on it right away and now is totally on aboard with that idea.  If I had never mentioned it, God knows what he would be thinking! In fact,  my SO used to think that most people got engaged for 2-3 months before geting married.  I had to tell him that I would prefer being engaged for a year—which also was perfectly fine in his eyes.

So feel free to speak up!  It’s so liberating 🙂
