My wedding is not until August 2014. We could not have it any earlier really as we have lots of saving up to do. However, this summer I am watching loads of my friends who were engaged after us get married! Its also my sisters wedding in 2 weeks time. All these weddings are making me feel really fed up with the fact that we still ahve 2 long years to wait till ours 🙁 Im finding it hard to be patient. Does anyone have experience of this and any advice on how they stayed patient?

When did you get engaged? I know how it sucks, we’ve already been engaged for nearly 1.5 years now and still have 10 months to go. Just busy yourself with other things; take up a new hobby so you don’t have to think about it as much! Also, don’t forget to spend quality time with Fiance and remember you are in one of the most exciting times of your life! You can still think about weddings, such as planning the bigger stuff like colors, theme, etc, but try not to focus on details because that’s when you get overwhelmed and too excited (my fiance could tell you all about that; poor guy’s been listening to me talk weddings for too long now haha). I heard once that you should have a short engagement so the groom won’t change his mind- I call bullshit on that advice 😀 Use the time to get to know each other!

I hear you loud and clear. We got engaged August 19th 2009 so it’s been a long wait. But I’ve just used the time well collecting ideas and finding the perfect everything. Just try to enjoy being engaged and you can also keep your eyes open at the other weddings to see what you like and dislike.
