    Keep the dreamy winter wedding.  Our engagement will have been two years by the time we say our vows and really, it flies by.  Plus, we had extra time to plan and save for our wedding and honeymoon.

    We were engaged for a year and 4 months and it sucked. I was so done with it all after like, 8 months. I would say move it up. There is no reason you can’t still have the pretty lights. Unless you are wanting the cold weather you really don’t have to change anything. Just decorate your reception with christmas lights!

    Keep your winter wedding dream!!!! You’ll never get it back again and you will be so happy you waited.

    I understand your pain, Fiance and I will be together 9 years just before our wedding, still haven’t lived together yet, and we got engaged in Jun’11….its now May’13 lol It’s rough, but honestly it will be worth it. 

    I wanted a September wedding forever, but we needed to save more for our wedding and a house combined so we did a 2.5 year engagement. I won’t lie, I was so close to moving ours up a full year…but we didn’t and I’m glad we didn’t.  You will only be waiting 6 more months and believe me those 6 months are going to fly by. I think the months of June-Dec are so fast between summer and all the holidays.

     

    Keep the dream, you only do this once and you don’t want to regret it! 🙂

    You want winter, so keep winter. Six months won’t make a difference in the long run IMO.

    Can you legally marry before then and have the wedding you want?

    Ha ha ha! I’m with you on the excited/impatient front! However, if you want that winter wedding, hold off and learn to live with that darn “will it never come?!” feeling! … I’m trying not to move my wedding up myself but September is what I want and I need a year to save so… um… September 2014 it is!

    Good luck!!!
