I’ll play, even though I don’t know if I’m considered a “young” bride. I’m still 20 something though, so I think it counts!

Where you from?: BFMoN, Texas (Bum-Ef you see kay middle of nowhere)

How old are you? 24… 25 next month

How old is your SO? 26

How long have you been together? 5 1/2 years

Favourite thing about SO: His unconditional love for me, and his unwaivering support.

Wedding Date? July 20, 2013

Did you have a long or short engagement & why? Longer than we’d wanted. Why? Sister rescheduled her wedding to the DAY before mine 6 hours away, so we ended up having to find a new date that worked better for us. Sister ended up taking over the original date. (Oddly enough I never had a freak out bridezilla moment…)

What do you do for a living?  Early Childhood Teacher

What are you/did you study in college? I was a double major in English and Education. Sadly my spelling is horrible.

Why are you getting married young? Well, I’m not a young bride, but I do know some people consider anyone under the age of 25 “young” so I’ll pretend like I’m young and answer: I’m getting married because both Fiance and I have met our goals we’d set prior to getting married and we’re both ready to take that next step in our lives.

Most annoying comment of on being a young bride? Not really about being a “young” bride, but just an annoying thing in general. I absolutely hate when people who are married, yet have been with their husbands for a shorter time than Fiance and I have been together try to give me marriage advice. Pretty sure Fiance and I have experienced most of the typical “marriage” things. We’ve been living together our entire relationship, have a house together, pay bills together, have a joint bank account, share household chores, have a pet together, do not want children, have been through death and trauma, been through serious illness, etc.  I appreciate them trying to be helpful, but telling me that I’ll have to get use to him not putting the seat down or being surprised as I learn more about him, isn’t really insightful.

  • Wedding: May 2014 - Smithfield Center

Where you from?: Virginia Beach, VA

How old are you? 20 (July 28 Birthday!)

How old is your SO? 22 (December 7)

How long have you been together? Almost 5 years (February 19, 2008)

Favourite thing about SO: When he says the exact thing I’m about to say, when he lets loose and does goofy little dances, the way he naturally holds me/my hand.

Wedding Date? April 19, 2014

Did you have a long or short engagement & why? We got engaged September 22. So, it’ll be 1 year and 7 months total. I guess it’s sort of long. I want a spring wedding, and I didn’t want to rush with having it this coming spring, so I put it off a year longer. 

What do you do for a living? I go to school full-time and usually work part-time as well, but I’m currently hunting for a job. My fiance is also looking for a job. 

What are you/did you study in college? Studying English – I’ll be deciding to either get my teacher’s certification or going after my Master’s in Library Science after I obtain my B.A. in English.

Why are you getting married young? It’s not about age – it’s about love, comittment, and a life together. I can’t imagine my life without him in it, and being together for so long has only solidified my feelings all along in knowing he is my best friend and lifelong partner. Despite knowing we will struggle financially, I would rather do it going to sleep and waking up beside him every day than having to postpone our life over something as little as age.

Most annoying comment of on being a young bride? “You do know the statistics of marriage on young people, right?”

I want to spend my nights with him, not worrying about having to get home to be up early in the morning. I want to make breakfast for him and dinner and eat with him without having to choose where to eat. I want to be with him every moment I can be and not make it a chore to go out and see him.

Most annoying comment of on being a young bride? I need time to see the world and “live a little.” Apparently there are things that I can’t do while married. WELL, anything I can’t do while married I have no interest in doing anyway!
