I have gone to one wedding so far for my friends. I missed Jolene and Chris’ last year, but I think that number will soon jump. Everyday I learn of more and more people getting engaged. None of them are even beyond the age of 23! What is happening? I didn’t think I was already at the age of marriage!
Also, what is with the trend of engagement websites by people who have little to no previous html experience? So far there are only two websites I found by my friends. “Engagement at the Beach” and “She Said Yes.”
Also, everyone is asking at the beach. If anyone is listening out there, that’s too cheesy for me, and photos of me at the beach are always unattractive. Unless we’re talking Hawaii.
By the way, I am not jealous. Surprised, mostly. Everyone knows I’m getting married when I am ready to be married. I’m not getting married young, on a whim or because it seems like great idea at the time, and then getting divorced afterward. When I get married, it’s going to be well thought out and stable. There’s no reason to be in a difficult marriage. I learned from my parents a long time ago that a marriage shouldn’t be hard.
And, Stacee is so designing my engagement page, because every girl deserves a nice, classy engagement website.
Yup – same here about everyone getting married when you’re 23. Spent this entire summer attending (4) various weddings. So, according to national averages, the divorces should start kickin’ in at about 10 years from now with half of my friends. I guess I’ll just enjoy the happiness while it lasts.

seriously. i feel like everyone our age is married, has kids, or is married with kids. kids, not babies. kids meaning they had babies when they were much younger.
and ugly engagement sites because they’re too excited. but mostly because weddings are expensive so they can’t afford a web designer?
i’d probably blog about my engagement, but i can’t see a website for it, other than like having a guestbook and wishlist thing – what’s it called when it’s for a wedding? i’ll do yours though !
oh, i just remember that i actually saw a nice one. the bride was a graphic designer. the groom was a programmer. her name started with an E and his with a M i think. they had this really nice logo where the letters intertwined. i wish i remembered what the url was.

I’m getting married in March ’06. I am 27. This is my first (AND ONLY) marriage. Don’t rush into marriage- you’re right- get married when YOU’RE ready!
Steven and I got engaged on March 5, 2005 and are planning our wedding for 53 weeks later. Since our engagement, I know at least 5 couples who have gotten engaged… and all 5 will be married before we are (and most have been dating less time than us).
Anyway, just wanted to throw my three cents out there!
