Does Planning fly by?

Just newly engaged, happy and enjoying it.  Enjoying being engaged and getting so excited even though the wedding is about a year and a half away (September 2011). My excitement level says tomorrow is too long!!  Now I can't wait to get married, does the time fly by??  :)

    Our experience:  First couple of months fly.  Then there's a lull.  Then the last 3-4 months go by in a flash. 
    "Trix, it's what they/our parents wanted. Why so judgemental? And why is your wedding date over a year and a half ago? And why do you not have a groom's name? And why have you posted over 12,000 posts? And why do you always say mean things to brides?" palegirl146

    By the time I will get married (9-25-10) it will be an almost 2 year engagement. Everyone told me it would fly by but it doesn't seem to be. That's just seems to fly for everyone else though!

    nice.. then only lulling for 11 months.. sigh!!

    Aw well now you only have 6 months left to go!  ...I bet that's how it is for everyone though, thinking they are dragging on because we just see everyone else moving on.  Well I hope it flies for you soon!!!

    14 month engagement. The first part 8 mos or so dragged on forever and now that it is closer, the last few months have felt like I have been going full speed ahead. I know I will be definitely ready for that HM.

    Yes it does fly by. Enjoy every moment of it. I will be married in 5 days and I keep wondering where my time went.  There will be times where you think it's going slow but enjoy those moments as well. lol

    Congrats on your engagement!

    Never felt like anything was going slow.  From engagement to wedding will be 11 months and it has flown by.  But I didn't do wedding planning every minute of everyday, like I do now.  We got engaged then bought a house and worked on that for a while and next thing I knew I was 4 months out.  It went by quickly for me but I was planning a wedding, moving into our new house, going to school and working part time, wow! it has been a crazy year.  I can't wait until the wedding when I don't have to plan anymore,  I don't really like the planning process, but that's just me.

    My wedding is 9-25-10 and it will be a 18 moth engagement. At first I was so excited and wanted it to hurry and get here and I even thought about moving it closer but then time started to fly after about 4 months, now i'm getting close and the time is really flying.

    Agree with PP.  It moved really quickly at the beginning (7 month engagement), and then I had about a 3 month lull (like I said, really quickly), and I looked at the calendar this week, and it's like, OMG, our wedding is in 6 weeks!
