How do you stand it??

I'm not getting married until November 10 and although people keep telling me it will be here before I know it, it seems like it is going to take FOREVER!!  How do you stand waiting for your wedding?  I can not wait to marry my best friend, party down with my amazing friends and family, and then take a mind blowing honeymoon!  It's like waiting for Christmas when you were really little....it just feels like it will never get here!

    I've been engaged for 15 months and I'm still not married... I promise it will fly by... just go on with life and keep checking things off your to-do list

    Ditto PPs.

    FI & I will have been engaged for just about 2 years when we get married. At times it seems like the wedding is never going to come, but it is coming, & fast. I've been focusing on what's going on now & enjoying our engaged life together because I've heard that no matter how long you've lived together, been together, etc., it still is a "different" feeling once you're married. So I'm enjoying the engaged life & looking forward to married life :)

    I promise you will look back and wish you could do it all over again....minus the stressed part of planning of course, but the whole reception and enjoying the night with family and friends part of it.  Enjoy this moment to it's fullest b/c before you know it......the night will go by in the blink of an eye.

    One thing.....on your wedding night, take a moment for yourself and breathe everything in.  Take mental images of your friends and family across the room laughing and chatting with one another b/c like I said, it will be over before you know it.

    THIS!!

    I was excited about the wedding and everything, but honestly, getting back to 'normal' and just living each day with H is what's really exciting.  During planning, don't forget how special it is to just be together.  If you stop focusing on the wedding date and just live in the moment, it'll be here before you know it.

    I couldn't... so we're having a seven month engagement. :)

    I had a two year engagement so I definitely know what you're going through. 90% of the engagement went by at a snail's pace and then all of a sudden, BAM! I was at the altar.  Today it's been exactly three months since the wedding and I feel like the time has gone by so fast.

    Enjoy where you're at in life now.

    It is hard! But trust me- it comes so fast!! We got engaged in june of 2010 and I thought it was going to take forever to get here. Like PP said, it does go by slow at times, but then its there before you know it. I'm down to 25 days and it seems like just yesterday i was all excited about the 365 day mark!! Enjoy it!

    <div>This. Have other things besides wedding stuff. Go on dates with FI (and don't talk wedding), go out with friends, take up a NWR hobby. By the time the wedding comes (Sept 22), I'll have been engaged for 18 months. It's crazy, but time has already started flying. Just enjoy everything you have now. =)</div>

    I feel the opposite! I want time to slow down so we can save the money in time, so we don't have to keep pushing our date back and back and back! A year and a half away from what we **hope** to be able to do is creaping up on me and I don't think we'll be able to do it.

    AceTT is super wise with "The wedding is not the finish line."

    I know the feeling! We still have over a year. Part of me just wants to be married and start a family and everything right now, but we also both want to have the wedding of our dreams, so that's why we're waiting. Sometimes it just seems SO far away, but as others have said, I know it will go fast, especially after the one year mark.

    I've just been taking my time to plan things. We booked our reception site, DJ and bartender. Oh and asked our wedding party. That's it right now. I keep gathering ideas but I change my mind on things a lot. But I kinda like that I don't have to decide yet because it helps us know what we really want.

    Just take your time and enjoy the process. And enjoy the time you have right now that ISN'T stressful. As the wedding gets closer it may get more stressful with making decisions and making sure everything is in order with the vendors. You don't have to worry about that for a while, isn't that great? Have fun, live your life, it will be here before you know it!

    As much as I really want to be married NOW NOW NOW!, I have to save up for the wedding, honeymoon, and our apartment. For me, the time I spend before the wedding will be enjoying food tastings, making a lot of my own things (DIY invites, flowers, etc) and being as practical with what I have as possible. My time till come soon enough! (And it will be wonderful!) :)

    Everyone says that to me too! We had a 16 month engagment and literally ervyone kept saying "It will be here before you know it". But it's not. I still have 6 weeks to go and that even seems like a while. I guess it's because i got so much of the planning done very early so there wasn't a lot to do towards the end. Maybe you can take your time planning so you have things to look forward to.
