Anyone else get a hint of jealousy when someone books their wedding before theirs? Not in a bad way, just as in you wish yours was sooner! I booked mine for 2019 because we need that long to save up, just really wish we could afford to do it sooner : ( !! Xx
But theirs will be over, and you'll still have yours to look forward to! It's not always a bad thing!
u dont need to spend alot we only spent about £500 but was a special day :) x
We booked ours for 2019 and I felt like this after my mother got married for the fourth time last weekend! So we rethought things and after pulling in some favours from family member like cake making invites flowers and a car we can bring ours forward by a whole year. You really don't need to spend the earth. Simple is just as perfect. Good luck xxxxx
Yes every time but now ours is 11 months away. Only one wedding before ours in our family and then it's us
Hi I just would like to have met my Fiance 1-2 years earlier as I will be 34 when we marry next year . Good luck :)
I feel the same, not in a bad way just wish I could have ours sooner but need to save up to ensure that we can have the day we have dreamed of. Could do it sooner and cheaper but really don't want to ..., catch 22 lol
At least you will have yours to look forward too when theirs is over. If you wanted to get married sooner I'm sure you can do little things to cut the cost down, but it all depends on the type of wedding your wanting and venue, our venue cost us £6,000 but you can get much cheaper, as not everyone likes to spend so much money just for one day, We booked ours last November and it's only 14 days away! Good luck xxx
I get brief glimmers of envy. We had an 18 month engagement (1year to go now) but I could have done in sooner, just had to plan around family (a lot of mine are flying in from the USA and it's a big trip for them). When I get impatient with how long I have to wait I park planning for a week or more until I can enjoy it again.
At least once theirs is over with you have yours to look forward too mines not until 2019 either and there's a few before mine but going to them just makes me more excited for my own...and you can get lots of ideas about what you like and don't like :)
Im exactly the same! we're getting married in 2019 because we cant afford to do it sooner! 😔 just in hopes that the time will fly by! xx
Yes I felt like this at times. Not in a bad way but just wished it was mine sooner. I still get that feeling now when people book their weddings and mine is over. I just wish I could do it all over again x
Yep. I know FOUR people who all got engaged after me... yet 1 of them is now already married, and the other 3 have all got their dates booked and will be married before me
It's frustrating, but it's just one of those things!
On the bright side, when it finally comes round to yours, they'll all be jealous & wishing they could re-live their days!
I had a 2 year engagement, it killed me watching other people have their days but when mine came it was incredible. I know exactly how you feel, but when your time comes you won't care about anything else. I get envious now of people who still have their wedding to come!!! Xx
Yes all the time. I've seen people get engaged and married since I first got engaged. We chose to wait 2 yrs from getting engaged to get married but how I wish time would move along. I'm trying to absorb every second of planning and dreaming about how our day will be, but can't beat the real thing
I'm jealous of everyone who has theirs booked! We haven't even set a date!
My daughter booked their two and a half years ago we would look on here and think the same but it goes so fast enjoy the planning they get married November x
Yes! I know someone who got engaged way after us, my fiancé jokingly said about not being allowed to marry before us after she was talking about a may wedding but this made me really annoyed. They were together for 6 years so I didn't see why they thought they had to rush in getting married in less than a year. We've been engaged for 2 years and don't get married for another 6 weeks.
Don't worry, it will absolutely fly by !!! Make the most of the planning time to stay calm & relaxed
It allows you be excited for longer and you will still have yours to look forward to but I do get what you mean. I am so excited, I want mine to be now x
I know that feeling! We are having ours in 2020 and I know it will come around quickly but seems so far away! It's a nightmare watching other people get engaged and a year later they are married ! BUT I know that because we have more time to save and look around we will have the wedding we both dreamed of :-)
Yep! 2 people got engaged after me and both their weddings are before mine. Really happy for them but definitely wish mine was sooner! Although only 5 weeks to go now! Xxx
We are planning ours for 2019 as it will take us that long to save up. The found out friends of ours are having theirs in 2018 at the same venue we were planning! We will just have to make sure ours is better ;)
Lj its gonna b amazein xx
Trust me, it will fly by and it's natural to be excited. I'm loving being engaged and am not wishing the time away. Loads of people are getting married before us and I'm really excited for their weddings. Try and enjoy everyone else's and be happy for them. Try to also remember it's about the marriage and the wedding is an added bonus! X
I know how you feel our wedding seemed so far away but it goes in a flash so enjoy the planning and excitement. Hope nice your married it's done x
No, not really. I'm just enjoying the planning process. We got engaged March 2016 and aren't getting married until August 2018. Partly due to costs but also because I just wanted to enjoy the planning process. One of my friends got engaged the month after me and got married in March and another (my bridesmaid) got engaged 4 months after me and gets married the week before me. I don't mind as they way I see it is I want them to get married when they want and I'm happy for them. I don't control the dates. So long as they didn't book the same date or have it the day before or day after then that was ok with me. It's best just not to think about what others are doing and focus on your planning as you'll enjoy it. If you feel there is a long wait and not a lot to do then maybe make a wedding scrap book of ideas or something. It'll keep your mind occupied on your wedding and you'll have some great ideas by the end of it.
Same! Waiting till 2020, I want it to happen sooner but never mind! Just gives us time to plan and save :) x
Look on the bright side, you get more time to enjoy planning your wedding. I got engaged in May and probably won't be able to afford to get married until 2020, but I'm loving discussing all my ideas with my family and friends =)
I get similar feelings about other things. Mainly buying my own home...
Its normal though.. I'm jealous of several friends but I am also very happy for them at the same time :)
As long as you acknowledge it it'll be fine.
Yeah I used to!!! We had been engaged 13 years sooo felt like it was never going to happen x
I set my date and a few weeks later a girl I work with set hers for the week before. It makes me SO happy that we are organising everything together and get to speak about our arrangements! I have no envy at all, I'm still marrying the love of my life, it just happens to be a week after someone I know.
yes I know this exact feeling! xx
My best friend booked hers two weeks after getting Engaged for 2018, I've been engaged 3 years and I still haven't booked a venue. I didn't get jealous but it definitely gave me a kick up the backside haha!
This is like me Charlotte Elizabeth Hope when everyone gets engaged after me & are now married
My sister and I got engaged same time she needed till 2019 to save up I could have had either 2018 or 2020 but didn't want to wait that long so went with 2018 as we already had funds for the wedding . What I think is great is that when all my wedding tasks are done hers will be starting now we just need our other sister to get engaged and married in 2020 and the wedding planning won't end
Think you should delete this post or at least remove the idiots. I gave my opinion and now I'm getting abuse.
Once its over its over. You get extra time to imagine and daydream
We had thought of 2013 but I lost my sister in the April so no one was in a mood for a wedding. so we though 2014 but my nephew got married in that year. So we thought 2015 but I had a baby in August! Yay we thought - 2016 will be us but nope - my cousin's daughter and my brother got married!! So Christmas 2016 we sent out Save The Dates for Nov 2017 before anyone or anything else hijacked our time!! And then my h2b's nephew went and set a date for next weekend :/ Kinda feel like my thunder's been knicked! But on the plus side for all those years I've been buying bits at a time so all we have left to pay for is the Church, the food after at the village gastro-pub and the party at the village hall the next day (there is no way we could have done the whole thing in one day!!)
