Maybe. I think lots of brides get that. My Fiance and I got engaged after 8 months of dating, but set the date out two years. Most my family asked if it was because I wanted to lose the pregnancy weight after the baby was born. I was like, “What baby?”

I wouldn’t let it steal your excitement though! People make thoughtless comments ALL the time during the whole planning phase. I have gotten comments from my dress looks cheap to things are too extravagant and I’m just showing off. I’m not sure how you show off on a budget of $10k, but whatever. 🙂

I think you might be a little too sensitive about it. Though I think it’s great that you both were very comfortable with each other that you can have that long of an engagement, it’s understandable that people are reacting that way. When you tell someone that you have news, and you’re already engaged, the first thing I would think of would be that you’re pregnant. Unfortunately, it does put a damper on the excitement of you planning your wedding!

I think approaching it a different way will help people stop asking if you’re pregnant. Maybe just coming out and saying, “So, we set a date! We’re really excited!” People will react a little better when you rephrase.

Try not to take it personal I am sure they are just as happy about your wedding as they would have been after a 2 year engagement. Have fun and don’t let anyone bring you down!

I think it’s just people don’t know what to say. Even though to the all of us, our worlds kinda-sorta-most definately revolve around weddings…apparently life is going on as normal for the rest of the world 🙂
