No Wedding Plans for the Bride





Me and Jamie are getting married in just about one year from now. October 20, 2012. We have been engaged since 2009, so you could imagine that I'm actually getting excited that now my wedding is actually an acceptable distance away. Well, most brides would be so excited to be planning their weddings, its all about the details. There is so much to think about and many decisions to be made that it doesnt happen overnight. I have been planning and researching this wedding since the time we got engaged; thats a long time. Now, I'm not saying I know all the details that I want, but I have a pretty good idea. However...eventhough we are coming upon the one year and counting mark....it's still TOO early to plan anything....


Nobody seems to care about any plans I might have or anything I might want to do. Now, obviously it's a little early to pick out my flower arrangements and things of that sort....all I'm asking is to start getting addresses together and finalizing the guest list ( I have save-the-date cards to send out soon) and go dress browsing. Apparently, thats too much to ask for too.


I give my mother and Jamie the simple task of getting some addresses for me that I cant get myself, his family members that I don't know, and my mothers work friends that I don't know. Was that done?....No. I don't know. Is that really much to ask. I want to be able to plan something but it seems like its still TOO early.


I want to go look at wedding gowns, but I can;t because my mother is not into it yet. She wants me to buy my dress in Feburary. I'm not saying there is anything wrong with that, but I would still like to go looking at them. I have tried some on and I found one I truely do like and would like to show my mother, but I can't. It's still TOO early.


I would never have such a long engagement, but I was trying to give us e nough time to finish school first. I would not reccomend a long engagement unless you have family and friends that actually are involved and are excited for you.


Just sad I guess.

Whoa, whoa, whoa. Get the dress now. You get it in February, you'll only have time to alter it once, and just barely. The Wife bought hers almost a year and a half before the wedding. And when they altered it, they did it wrong, and it took another 3-4 weeks to get it back. Get it now. You won't be sorry.

Alterations are a bitch. My sister had to have hers redone 8 times. Yes...8! She is getting married in 11 days and my dress still isn't taken in...stress abounds. Trust me unless your weight fluctuates a lot get that dress ASAP!!

It is okay to tell people that you want/need their involvement and excitement and that it's time to start getting into the bulk of the wedding planning!

Vigorously nodding my head in agreement with Joshua!

I agree with everyone else. I'm sorry...I'm sure it's feeling pretty frustrating right now. I hope they'll start helping a little bit more sooner rather than later. Your save the date card is cute!!

I think you should just go ahead and do what you want...surely trying on dresses is the most fun part of the preparations.

I'm sure you want your Mum involved but if she's not into it yet grab a couple of girlfriends and go.

I can't even image all the things that have to be accomplished beforehand. Too much for me, that's why I always get married in Las Vegas......bah da boom!
