Welcome to Weddingbee!  Waiting can be really tough.  

One thing that some girls on here mention to their SO’s is the amount of time it takes to plan a wedding.  A lot of guys seem to think 6 months or less is appropriate while many women want at least a year.  If you agree on getting married spring of 2011, maybe talk to him and make sure he understands how much time you would like to plan a wedding.  Most wedding dresses take at least 5-6 weeks to ship unless you are lucky to find a floor sample in your size.  

Best wishes with waiting, its very tough!

Hi! and welcome to the Bee! I am SO glad to see an older couple here.LOL I’m 29 and my SO is 32 and I feel like the grandma in the room sometimes. 

Anywho, I don’t think men understand how long it takes weddings to be planned either. I know some is just the wedding industry, but if they want to get married at that big place they like so much (my SO) they need to get on the ball! I hope yours comes this December so you will have time to get in that Spring wedding. 🙂

Make sure you ask to get added to the waiting list!

I can definitely relate to you and I hope that this waiting isn’t to much longer for you!  My SO is a firefighter and I swear its one of the worst professions to influence a guy to “take the plunge” LOL  the like to convince otherwise and there tends to be a higher rate of divorce etc so it isn’t exactly encouraging to a guy…Try to keep staying busy!!
