I think that’s a silly reason to postpone. Even if you did, you’d still likely feel the same this time next year. I think a lot of brides get a bit too caught up in the “I don’t want it to be over” mentality and lose sight of the real reason for getting married. Yes, planning a wedding can be fun and no matter how much time you have to do it, you’ll always feel like you could use a bit more. Have your wedding, marry your fiance, and take the next step in your lives together and enjoy each moment as it comes. In ten years, you won’t care about whether or not you had “enough” time to plan.

I agree- there is plenty of time to be young and married and acomplish the same things you would as young and engaged πŸ™‚ If you wait for a magic number for your weight, money saved, etc, you will always be chasing a goal. Enjoy your day- it will be wonderful, and then you get to come out of it with a HUSBAND!! πŸ™‚

I have to say I agree with the other ladies. Go ahead and get married and try not to over-think it!

You need to focus on what’s important- your marriage. You could take five years to plan a wedding, and it won’t be “perfect”- you’d still have could have/should have/would haves.

Are you doing too many DIYs, that you’re overwhelmed? Take some off the list. Get a day of coordinator. 

You can travel with your *husband* when you’re young and married, which is a lot better than traveling with your fiance. πŸ™‚

I’ve felt similar to you, almost like I’ve wasted the engagement time and haven’t made the most of it.  When I felt that way, I just decided I would talk about what I’m excited about with my Fiance to get my spirits lifted.  I asked him what he was most looking forward to about the ceremony and about the reception, talked about the silliest entrance songs (think: “My Heart Will Go On” for the groomsmen introductions, lmao!!), and just anything silly or exciting about the wedding that is actually happening, or would be comical if it did happen.  I also made a list of everything minor or huge left to do and organized it based on a timeline of when it should get done.  

You’re not alone in your feelings!

You can get it done by the time the wedding rolls around.  I wouldn’t push it back.  It’s more important to be married than to have some little detail that you didn’t have time to deal with in my opinion.  There’s no way I’d push ours back.

Does your fiancée feel like you? I WAS overwhelmed pretty near the wedding and part of me just wished it was all over. BUT ialways felt i was working and stressing planning a magical day that was the BEGINNING of a life, not the end!!!!!

I’m feeling pretty overwhelmed as well, but my reaction is different.  I want it to end right now.  I’m completely over the stress, money issues, this problem, and that problem.  We’ve had a rough 20 months of planning so I’m done.  I’m throwing in the white flag.  πŸ˜‰

Coming from a procrastinator, you could give me two years and it STILL won’t get done till the last minutes.
