Fell off of the “Shut the Hell Up, Seriously This Time” wagon again (shocker). Again, I’m not 100% to blame: he never should have told me it was “ok to start getting excited.” I’m a victim.
While being forced to watch some David Blane BS and golf yesterday, I started looking at wedding porn online to ease my boredom, as Tiger Woods just doesnt have the same allure for me. It stated off innocently: just checking out the WeddingBee boards, then the galleries of hair pics, not saying anything at all. From there, it I began aggressively googling and saving hair and hairpiece photos to my phone and showing them to Boyfriend or Best Friend for opinions. It then turned into a solid 40 minutes of mutual reception ideas getting tossed around and some color combos being selected. He even half way agreed to help make favors.
I nicely reminded him that he brought all of this upon himself when he told me the whole “6 months or less” thing and that it was ok to get excited. He stated he is aware of this fact.
I’m trying *really* hard (maybe 35% effort) not to bring this up…but it doesnt help having a fashionista Boyfriend or Best Friend who enjoys this planning stuff possibly more than I do!

Try having your fashionista moments on other non related things (It’s spring, there is tons of new trends coming in) And be patient! 🙂 I know it’s ridiculuosly hard but you can do it. But if your really feeling the wedding bug, Pinterest has been my saving grace. Anything I love I pin on my boards, so that I can just remember that I will discuss it with him when the time is right and that it’ll be there for me when it’s time. Also, sharing and pinning with random online strangers lets me share and get new ideas/opinions, without sharing with my SO and pressuring him too much.

@badabing88: also- a lot of guys say that they didn’t propose until the girl stopped talking about the wedding, proposal, and engagement. so remember that, it’s highly likely that he will not propose until you stop talking about it. for me, we talked a good amount about it (including dates, venues, guest lists, everything), then as I could tell (b/c he’s a bad liar/excuse-maker) that he was making progress on proposal/ring plans, he stopped bringing it up & so did I. so anyday now 😀
