Young Bride

So I just turned 20 this week. And I've been engaged for 2 and a half months with 233 days to go. So I catch a lot of flack about waiting, and being too young. Which I kind of knew would happen, but somehow no one prepared me for how hard it was going to be to not let that get me down. I love my fiance. I'm not worried about the marriage. With all the ups and downs and everything in between I know we'll make it. We're honestly too stubborn not to ;) What I am worried about is pulling off a wedding. Especially when half the time people are jumping on every little thing we say wondering if its a doubt or trying to get us to call it off. I want to share my happiness and my dream. I want advice on how to make it work on how to be a wife. But young or not all you can do is prepare yourself as best you can and jump into it with both feet. I gave my whole heart when I said yes...and my heart only continues to grow with love for him. There is no walking away. no turning back. There is only forward. As a bride, as a best friend, and as a wife.

 

So in parting if you have any wisdom, advice, or ideas about planning a Christmas wedding let me know :) I would love to hear it. But please keep the negativity away, I have plenty of that already I don't need extra :)

Awe hunny, I am so sorry you are facing some struggles towards an event that is so exciting! So first off - CONGRATULATIONS on your engagement!!! 

My DH and I got engaged when we were both 19, and married just after I turned 20. We celebrated our first wedding anniversary this past summer and things have been nothing short of wonderful. Getting married young has zero reflection on the marriage you are going to have, so try not to let it get you down. We faced a lot of the same comments (and still do when people find out we are 21 and have been married over a year) but once people realize that you are going to do this hopefully they will smarten up and realize that they can either support you and be there for you, or question it and miss out on something beautiful. 

We are all here if you need anything and I hope we can turn your wedding planning experience into a very happy one!

I have BEEN there my dear!! I got married at 18. PW is a wonderful place for support and really got me through it. If there is anything I can do for you, let me know!

Very well-put! You sound like a girl who is wise beyond her years and knows what she wants :)

Awww thanks guys :) <3 Its so nice to be apart of a community that supports me
