Has anyone else been having people tell them they shouldn't wait so long to get married? Two people I know have said something about it. One is a girl who had a simple wedding that she was able to plan in three months, the other is a friend of mine who's getting married in a few weeks and only got engaged in March.
I explained that my fiance and I have a lot going on in the next year (student teaching, graduating, etc.) and don't want the added stress of getting married during that time, plus it's more time for us to save money. The second girl commented that it's not about the money but rather about how heartfelt the wedding is. I'm a little offended by that last remark. It's like she's saying I'm being shallow about what our wedding will be like because I want to save money and have nice things for our big day.
Has anyone else experienced this?
