G and i have been engaged for 5 years this week and it’s just crazy how time has flown. It was also meant to be our 2 year wedding anniversary on the same day, and you know what i was just fine about it.
It got me thinking though about the ‘point’ of a long engagement. Have any of you been engaged for a long time before heading up the aisle? Or are you planning your weddings as soon as you got engaged?
We went through a process of planning straight off, then waiting for 3 years, then planning again before having to cancel. I’m wondering if i will be ‘always the blogger, never the bride’?
To us it doesn’t matter that we are not married yet, and we are in no rush. We are happy and content as is our little boy, so that is our focus. Plus the fact we are saving like mad to try and move house in the not to distant future. Is it right to keep putting off the wedding for whatever reason? Well i think it depends on the person, for us it’s right. For now i will enjoy your weddings, and you know what its quite fun being engaged for so long as you can pretend you are planning your wedding all the time ;-) I think in my head i’ve dreamed a hundred different weddings hehe!!
Like me scouting wedding venues ↑
Instead of focusing on what we cant celebrate we’ll be focusing on what we can. With our 7 year anniversary round the corner and little A’s birthday this weekend. This time of year sure keeps us busy.
I am a believer of enjoying the present to be truly happy.
You know last week i said i went out on my bicycle. Well G managed to convince me to ride 9 miles… round a lake… with hills!! Ouch!! It was lovely though, and we also went for a walk in the woods and collected leaves to make a picture. I think i still ache now ;-)
Let me share a peek of whats to come this week on WWW:
