    All I can tell you is good luck. With both the planning and the fact that people are about to start replying asking why you're getting married at 18.

    It's your first as in you're assuming there will be a second?  

    If you calm down and quit screaming, and ask for what you actually need help with, people will help you.  With just a bunch of screaming in one run-on sentence, I can't tell what help you're actually looking for.

    Well I'm glad that you can get a good laugh out of your engagement, but I hope you understand the commitment and obligation that you're getting yourself into. Your life isn't yours anymore. If you decide to go forward with your engagement, then you have plenty of time to plan. Almost a year.
     
    But another issue I have with your OP was that this is your "first time". No kidding? I'd say that the majority of us here were planning our "first" and hopefully only wedding when we first joined. Your calling it your "first time" worries me to make me think you're thinking about doing this multiple times.
    **Edited for spelling.

    Stop posting all in caps.  Use punctuation (periods, commas, etc.)

    If you seriously can't figure out that:

    1. punctuation and proper spelling are your friends;

    2. capslock on the internet = YELLING and YOU SHOULD STOP DOING IT WHEN PEOPLE ASK YOU TO STOP;

    3. you should never, ever use your full name as your username on a public message board, because then people can Google you and find your hilariously badly spelled Twitter feed in 0.3 seconds; and

    4. if you want other people's advice you need to actually ask a question;

    then you are NOT - let me repeat, ABSOLUTELY NOT - old enough to get married.

    Look, if this guy is truly "the one," he's going to be "the one" five years from now too, so what's the rush down the altar?  Wouldn't it be better for both of you to launch your careers and become stable adults before taking on the responsibiities of marriage?  (Hint: the correct answer to this question is "yes.")

    Dear lord.


    That's all I got. I second the PP that said wait five years. If you've been together for six years, that means you've been together since you were twelve. You still have alot of growing to do. Wait to get married so that you can grow without being chained down to a relationship that potentially may limit your growth.

    A quick search unfortunately says otherwise.
    OP, piece of advice, don't use your real name in your username. It's really not a smart idea.

    If this were real, which I'm praying it's not, six years would mean you were 12 and he was 15. Which is just gross. Middle-school 'romance' shouldn't count toward years a couple has been together, IMO. Start counting after you turn 18. And what's with the caps?

    You know, OP probably didn't understand any of that. So, to communicate properly with her:

    OP, you're 18 and engaged fine, but dont get married at 19. I moved in with my bf at 19 and i wish i would've waited. Now i'm a mom of 2 and life is good but we had many struggles; fianancial & emotional. At 19, you're new life is fun and you feel like you can take on the world, you mature as an adult and find your NEW personality. If you're meant to be together, why not wait another 5 years?

    Aw poor girl spelled her own name wrong on Twitter!  Mercedes, I think you have bigger things to worry about than marriage at this point.  You don't need to get married so young-concentrate on school, finding a stable job, and building your relationship with your boyfriend, and THEN start thinking about getting married.  No need to rush!

    I was not making fun of the name, for the record. The connotation I mentioned is discussed in Freakonomics and Mercedes is on the list of names signifying 'lower class.' I do apologize if I inadvertently offended anyone.

    A general statement is pretty rude. Some of us actually gave you advice.

    What do you need help on? Nerves are normal yes but I still think you should have a longer engagement.
  • Options
    What planning stage are you in?
    1. Decide on a budget
    2. Set the date (unless you're marrying in a church, then you need to meet with the Church FIRST)
    3. Create the guest list 
    All others are extras but The Knot has a checklist that i found pretty useful.
    I didn't have DIY projects so i just hired a florist to do my centerpieces (which i could've gone without), had no favors, I hired a caterer, photographer, and DJ and my venue was BYO alcohol which i supplied for my guests. I had Vodka, Tequila, Wine, Beer and hired bartenders from the venue for $20/hr each.
