I am having some trouble setting our wedding date. My fiance and I have been together for five years and we got engaged in January. He is 20 and I will be 19 next month. We are both students earning our bachelor degrees and living together. We are so happy and want to get married next September, when I would be 20 and he would be 21.
The only thing is that I want to be able to have a glass of wine at my own wedding and my extended family to not blow a gasket about it. It's not about actually having a drink, it's the ability to and to not feel like a child. It seems like such a trivial thing to get caught up about, but you haven't met my family. I can just see someone saying something negative, and I don't need any of that on our wedding day.
The alternative would be to wait until a year after that. Although it would mean that I would be 21 and we would have more time to plan, I just don't know if I want to wait that long. We have already started our life together and the wedding would just make it official and be a celebration of that.
