Awww!  It sounds like you two are wonderful together and very much in love πŸ™‚  Congrats!!!


I do Mr. Bee’s plan to help my wedding fever!  You can find it here: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/mr-bees-three-step-plan-and-backup-plan-for-getting-engaged


I’ve been doing the back up plan for a couple months now.  I’ve taken on a few new hobbies, like reading books, scrapbooking, starting a new girly tv series, working out more, hanging with friends more, and now I’m looking into taking a class at my community college.  


The plan helps give you a sense of control and forget about that sense of wedding urgency that tends to grow on you.  


I have ups and downs with my wedding fever.  The past few weeks have been a wedding flu fest for me.  It’s really only because we moved across the country and looking at wedding stuff is mre fun than looking at jobs :).  I need to get back on the Bee Plan. 


Good luck!!!

yay! Congrats! 

A year will fly by so quickly! What I have done to make the time pass is to quietly start thinking of what I want in terms of colours and details and writing them all down. It is like planning.. without actually planning yet. It takes care of the fever and makes me feel like it is closer. All the sudden a year will pass, you are almost already 1é2 way there and hasnt time flown already? 

I am so happy for you! good luck πŸ™‚

Welcome to the boards!

Sounds like you’re in a good position πŸ™‚

I would suggest having some discussions about the future – the less fun ones – to know for sure that you are well matched. You may have already discussed these things, but it’s important that you’re on the same page before you get married. So things like kids (yes/no/how many), religion, finances (do either of you have debt, is one a spender, one a saver, etc.), where you’ll live (same country? same city? buy a house together? rent? etc.), and things like that. I think that with time these things are discussed, and you may already know the answer to all of these, but as long as you agree on the big things then I see no problem in getting engaged in a few months. I think that’s why people set timelines for relationships… so all this stuff comes out.

If you have some of these discussions and are really future focused for the next few months then I think that time will fly by and you will be all set to get married. Of course you need to stay in the moment and enjoy life as well, but you seem to be doing that already.

You can also get addicted to Weddingbee like I am lol.. then you have a place where you can talk/vent w. likeminded people so you don’t drive your guy mad with wedding talk πŸ™‚
