So with 18 months still left to go the angst of waiting is getting really heavy. FH and I decided that logistically a long engagement made more sense, so a 23 month engagement it was. Now the venue is booked so there is nothing left to do until the start of next year, but seeing all of this planning going on makes me want to go dress shopping and invitation buying so badly. Plus I'm kind of annoyed because since the wedding is so far away no one (like family or bridal party) seems to really be interested in any of it. Does anyone have any advice or tips to keep me from exploding into a rain of birdseed and bridal confetti?
