On the heels of our latest vacation, I must dispense with a burning question/update.
Before I got engaged, I judged wedding planning timelines mercilessly. On the one hand, I laughed to myself as a newly minted fiancée’s “Cute Save the Date Ideas!” Pinterest board flew up with head-spinning alacrity before the newly minted fiancé had even gotten up from his question-popping kneel. (Seriously though – who you kidding with the posture of “I wasn’t even expecting it!” and “This came totally out of the blue!” What, it came out of the Tiffany-blue brochures from last week’s covert ring-scouting excursion??)
On the other hand, for those couples where happy engagement is trailed by more than four seasons where you haven’t yet booked your date at the Four Seasons — well, come on, we all get to cattily chattering about the durability of those unions, no? (On another note, Gabrielle Union — honey. Honey. Never allow your engagement, revelation of fiancé’s “we were on a break” love child and nuptials to occupy the same year. Take a breath!)
