@mrspinnyc:  Take a deep breath, dear! I am in a similar situation, so I feel for you.  This point of the wait is SOOOO frustrating!

-Have you discussed the fact that weddings do take time?  My SO didn’t really get that until a few weeks ago when I mentioned that most places I’ve looked at book SUPER far in advance.  Make sure he undetstands that.

-Since it’s a matter of time at this point…have you started researching vendor/venues and the “big” things?  This can help you narrow some things down so you can hit the ground running.

-Keep yourself busy with friends and activities.  The busier I am, the less I tend to think about how much the waiting sucks 🙂

I feel like he knows it takes a while to plan a wedding unless you’ve talked about just court house-ing it.  Let him have his timeline.  He’ll propose when he’s ready and then you can both sit down and choose a date.  If that date is in the fall, then great, but if not I’m sure he’ll get over it and understand.  Good luck and try to just let go of the anxiety and go with the flow.

The other lovely ladies are spot-on. Relax and try your best to keep busy. Seems like the more I obsess about it, the more upset I am. And you don’t want to look back at this particular time in your life and regret your attitude towards waiting. It sounds like he’s on track and now you have to let go of the control (something I’m not good at either) and let him propose the way he feels is right. I bet it will be amazing too! Don’t forget why you love him so much either!
