I just got engaged (yay!) after a long 7 years dating my now fiance. Until about a year ago, I hadn't really been thinking about getting engaged, but within the last year it's all I can think about. I would prefer to have a spring/summer wedding when the weather is nice and sunny, but obviously that would mean we'd have to wait about a year, which I really don't want to do. Since it's been so long in coming, I really would like to do it this year. My fiance and I have been talking about November over Veteran's Day weekend (since we'll have a lot of out of towners), but I have 2 concerns:
1: What if the weather in November is awful, we're looking at Northern California
2: The initial reaction from people when we've been telling them we're thinking November is, "OH!!! THIS YEAR???????"
Like I said, I am so ready to get married sooner rather than later and I feel like 8 months is a good amount of time to plan everything out without waiting forever to have the ceremony. Do you guys think I'm crazy and should just put it off until 2013? Any opinions are greatly appreciated, thanks!
