Just looking for support from my fellow waiting bees. I love my future Fiance dearly. He has told me he plans to propose in the Spring. We have a ring set aside at the store and everything (and I love it!). Feeling pressure from family to get engaged and frankly, I just want to be engaged too! We are having a very short engagement (2-3 months) so we have started planning already. It’s a little odd to be planning a wedding with my boyfriend, instead of my fiance. I love him a ton and I know that waiting is what he wants and I am more than happy to support that. Waiting is just hard. It’s only be a month and I’ve got another 6-9 months to go!

If you’re wedding planning already…. what’s the hold up on getting engaged?

I totally understand but yeah, why no engagement yet?

He wants to wait until we have been together a full 2 years to be officially engaged. (We’ve been together a year and a half currently). I tried explaining that agreeing to get married kind of is the definition of engaged, but he didn’t really seem to agree. Haha

I am confused..
by planning do you mean discussing and researching? or actually booking and putting down deposits?
If you are actually booking, i dont see the point in waiting for the ring.

I’m getting married on Friday and planned my whole wedding in 5 weeks. We did talk about what we wanted for our wedding before we got engaged.
As PP said if your already planning (not just talking about what you’d like) what’s the hold up. we’ve been together 4 years have 2 children together and my eldest from a previous relationship who wants us to be marries more than anything.
I used to get antsy about when he would propose but I knew deep down that when he was going to do it, it was going to be perfect and it was!
Your spring proposal will be here before you know it. Enjoy your relationship for now. Its obviously what your SO wants

Believe me, I wish I had the ring! We are discussing and researching currently, but booking will start as soon as we pick a venue and have it cleared with the parents (as I assume it goes with any engaged couple).
I’m trying to be very supportive and not make the SO feel like he needs to ditch his plan and propose before he wants to (even though we have already agreed to get married). It really does seem like a formality at this point.
I love hearing other opinions on this! It definitely helps a ton! Thanks guys!

@thefuturemrswindowcleaner Thank you so much for your input! I’m trying to focus on my fitness and reading some books that I want to and basically anything to keep my mind of an engagement. I’m trying to enjoy how things are right now. It’s just a little hard sometimes when I know something so exciting is coming up!

Setting a wedding date so soon after an engagement might make it difficult for everyone to save the date! And the bridal party needs get their outfits in time! Just a word of caution.
