I certainly wouldn’t have liked being engaged for over a year but I actually found keeping on top of things made everything less stressful.  I’m a fairly organised person though. 

I agree with you that it’s not THAT hard to plan!  I was underwhelmed after hearing some people’s stories. 

I enjoyed watching that guy who organised his wedding in 5 hours.

Yay for Australians. I’m SO with you on the laid back thing. We’ve hardly touched a thing & still a few months to go. The only real things I organised early was church, venue & photographer. The rest could wait, and still are waiting!

another lazy aussie here, we eloped but a few days before the wedding day i had a “oh i have no flowers, makeup and what about my hair” moment

on the way to the beach ceremony i dunked my head in a tub of water and grabed a flower off a tree to put behind my hear and that was my hair for the wedding and for witnesses we grabbed eddie from the bar and stella the resort receptionist

aussie transplant here – also pretty lazy..however a year out i’ve got my dress and venue, all completely unexpectedly!  Everything has just fallen into place.  I don’t have colours, a theme, and we;re lucky to have a graphic designer friend who is taking care of all the invitation bullshit for us, for 2 bottles of gin. 

pretty much as long as we’re both there and theres booze and music, i won’t be disappointed 🙂

I agree that this wedding thing has gone a bit overboard!! I’m not an aussie, although I wish I was!! We chose to have a year long engagement, for purposes of having a fall wedding, and also because we have so much else going on in life right now (house, work, etc.). We made sure to book the venue and the church right away, and the rest has honestly just fallen into place. I do feel like I have a lot done for still being 10 months away from my date–but I’m not stressed at all, because in the end, my main concern is that Fiance will be at the end of that aisle, and there will be a priest there to marry us. I could care a less what I’m wearing, or if anyone else is there–for once in my life, I am going to make something about him and I and not about everyone else.
