Planning a wedding with no engagement!?
This was a touchy subject between my sisters and a couple girlfriends of mine. Over the weekend we had a huge discussion and/or debate and now im curious to hear other opinions!
So my sister Nat is rekindling her relationship with an ex for the past 2 months and is all in now. She wants to marry him and is hounding me to plan her wedding! Ok so I made the remark to her that I didnt want to plan until they got officially engaged! So my baby sister agrees with me, two girlfriends agree and one girlfriend disagrees. I explained to my sister I thought she was putting the cart before the horse so to speak! She got very angry! I wasnt trying to be mean it was just my opinion! So now she thinks those who disagreed are just hating and being negative!
Honestly when DH proposed to me it was labor day weekend 2010. We told immediate family and that was all. He gave me my engagement ring in March 2011. So we announced that we were officially engaged at that point to everyone. I did no planning until after that. Now thats just me! My baby sister who got married a couple years ago did the exact same thing.
So now my ansy sister Nat thinks we are being ridiculous and we should all start planning her day now! I even think it would be one thing if WE KNEW when they were getting engaged but he hasnt said anything about that to her yet either!
So my question is ...what do you think of planning a wedding before the engagement?
