@shmell7:

Do you have an idea of what your priorities will be?  The feeling or ambiance or theme or colors you’d like?  What about the size of the wedding?  Small or intimate or with every. single. person. there. ?  Have you thought about budget? or possible guest list? Maybe you’d like to start an inspiration board to find out what does appeal to you.  BTW-if you finish with your cupboards ya wanna come over and work on mine, LOL 😉

Maybe you could print up a timeline that includes the engagement period, engagement party, time needed to book things (venue, flowers, photographer), the wedding date.

He might not realize all the things required to pull off a wedding, and maybe showing him the timeline will be helpful.

I would say if you really want the wedding that Jun 2011 time frame you can go ahead and quietly start doing some research but in general boys aren’t dumb.  He knows how long it takes and from the sounds of his comment he is working on his end.  Don’t pressure him.  To make the timeline you want you need to have decisions made in your mind (like they said above.. what are your priorities… do you actually know what you want?) then once he pops the question it will all be a matter of finding vendors and telling them what you want.  For me what took the longest is coming up with the wedding vision.  I believe I could have gotten it all done pretty fast if I had known that.  Let him be the man and do this at his pace (I am a much more femanist person than that sounds but sometimes we have to let the fellas feel like a man just as much as we need to feel like women) Proposing is one of the most memorable days in a man’s life.  Let him do it his way.  (My fiance was not given the chance to propose to his first wife and he told me how much it bothered him) So daydream away!  But save it all in a little inspriation folder on your computer.
