I get that look alot when I tell them that my wedding date is in September of 2014. I have to explain we put out date that far out because weddings are expensive and a lot of vendors we want to use are booked up in 2013. They get really quiet and just look at you like you’re crazy. I get so tired of it too! “Oh… 2 years away? Wow, that’s a long time to wait..”

The judgement in their voice gets sickening.

Congrats!

That is crazytown. You need a really good comeback for when people say that, just to shut them up. Something along the lines of, ‘thank you for your insight into my relationship with a man you have never met.’ If it were people close to you saying that I would pay attention, but for people who barely know you, screw them. Some people just don’t know what to say.

OH MY GOD.  I just laughed as I read that, out of disbelief at how ridiculous people are.  *sigh* are these friends or just random acquaintences?  well… obviously not good friends…. *hugs* its never too early to start planning 🙂

Urgh, I feel you. We’re not getting married until 2016, since that’s when I’ll be finished with uni. The comments just keep rolling in…

Since everyone knows wedding planning is stressful, and turns sweet gentle women into bridezilla and that grooms are useless and never want to help at all and all you do as a couple anymore is fight……

I think thats what these people are running on. The misconception that engaged couples do nothing but fight throughtout their engagement, the bride becomes this detail obessessed monster, and the groom doesn’t care. While its true any couple that isn’t serious about the committment or are rushing into things which they aren’t really ready for, probably won’t survive any length of engagement. Many people need to realize this isnt usually the case. Many grooms do care and have opinions about certain details, and while most brides get super stressed, not all become demanding little princesses.

I’m sorry you’re getting this reaction, people can be so ignorant.
