  • Wedding: March 2014

My wedding is even farther away than yours and yeah, I get this feeling sometimes. But then I remember that it’s what’s best for us. I would looooove to get married Feb. 2013, but that’s just not going to work out for me and my Fiance. And I kinda love that I’m really getting to enjoy being engaged apart from wedding planning, if that makes sense. Like I didn’t have to jump feet first into planning and stress as soon as the ring was on my finger. We have plenty of time before we actually need to make concrete plans, and that’s a good thing, in my opinion.

Just try to look on the bright side πŸ™‚

  • Wedding: August 2012

I was engaged november 2010, and we decided on an August 2012 wedding date so we’d have time to save money, plan.. etc. At first, people acted like we were crazy, and I realized it would take sooo long for it to get here , but I can honestly say it was the best decision for us.

The time has flown by. You wouldn’t even believe how fast it’s gone. We’ve had so much time to plan, and have had barely any stress having to do with the wedding. If you tackle one thing a month, you’re all set to go when the time comes πŸ™‚ Now we’re 6 months out from our wedding and although I still wish it would hurry up and get here… I realize how fast the last year and two months has gone … and how fast our day will be here and gone. 

Don’t wish your life away.. it will be here before you know it πŸ™‚ It’s so great to have such a long engagement.. just think.. you get to enjoy that phase of your life for much longer than most people do.

  • Wedding: October 2013

I am in the same boat.  I wanted to get married this October but it was already full except for Sundays which did not work for me.  The people that got engaged at the same time as me* at christmas* are booking for 2013, I only know one that is booking this year at 2012.  I think even when all three parties are paying you still need to book a year and a half out.  I care about having it on a Saturday, i don’t want the last Dj that was available, and I want the photographer that I want.  I do not mean to sound selfish but if I have to wait a year and a few months to marry the love of my life and to have everything I want then so it is.  I am only doing this once.  A few months is not going to change the way our whole life will play out.  Enoy this time together.  The extra months will give you time to not stress out *hopefully*!  Plus save some money!  Happy planning everyone! <3

Somedays yes, somedays no. Yes because I can’t wait! No because we can’t afford diddly squat right now. Plus I want to have at least 1 degree with my maiden name and the way our planning worked out is we will have enough Money for the wedding we want, the honeymoon we want and a down payment on a house. 

Although somedays I wish we were married allready if only so I could get more sleep. Hahaha

This is the attitude I’m taking. This gives me the chance to admit to what I really want, and to have it. πŸ™‚

I hear ya!!!  Sometimes I feel ridiculous planning stuff so far in advance, but I am sooo thrilled that I cant help it…lol  Actually the area I live in a lot of venues are booked 2-3 years in advance…even decorators, dj’s and caterers…its crazy.  Im glad to have booked all the biggies, but everyone keeps saying its too early to do the “little stuff’…ARG!!!    My sister in law is getting married this sept and my bff is getting married in dec, thats why we chose next year…:o)

Haha, meet the queen of long engagements!  I’m super frustrated at the moment because I can’t get that much sorted for the wedding yet as it’s still over a year away.  I’ve been engaged since July 2006.  We’d always planned a long engagement (we were only 17 at the time, went travelling, went to different unis, had to earn some money first – quick wedding wouldn’t have been very practical) but I never thought it would feel quite this long!  Somehow since we booked it seems to be getting further away!

It’s probably not helped by the fact that the Thursday before I booked my venue, a friend of mine got engaged.  She booked her wedding that SAME WEEKEND for less than 7 months later *sigh*

I wish mine was closer as I am so excited about making things, but certain things don’t keep well – like the lolly buffet sugar sticks I am DIYing! However, I am planning my wedding from 4000km away from the venue (it will be where all our friends and family are, we moved away for work), so a long engagement gives me plenty of time.

@KaylaJ:  I know!!  Especially now that it’s wedding season & we’re going to a wedding almost every weekend.  Even people who started dating after us are getting engaged and getting married before us!  My Future Mother-In-Law did tell me I would regret the long engagement.  Not sure I regret it per se, I just wish it would be NOW!Tongue Out

  • Wedding: October 2013

I wish at times that it was sooner, but I like the idea of being able to take the time to plan out the wedding, and make it how we want it to be, and have no regrets. Its also sentament to him with grandparetns anniversery.    We also, thought it would be great because his one friend was supposed to be getting married this October, and come to our suprise after we has soo much books, they changes their day…. its now the same as ours…. Funny how things work out.

I’m both glad and sad that my wedding date isn’t until September 2013… Glad because I have time to do everything the way that I would like to and sad because I’m very excited to marry the man I love!
