You only mention your mom, maybe this is why she doesn't want you to get married and it has nothing to do with it being too soon but with her not agreeing with marriage? In that case it's a whole other issue entirely. And that is her issue, not yours. If you want to get married then do it, whether it be 2011 or 2015. If she's not going to support you in your decision if you do it tomorrow then she's not going to in 2015, she's just stalling so she doesn't have to deal with it.

However if you feel he's the one and you guys have already been together for a few years just sit down with your mom and talk it out. Let her know you're making the right decision for you and it's yours to make. If she has any concerns let her air them and listen without being defensive. Sometimes mom's know what they're talking about and other times they just don't want to let go. But at least if you hear her out it might help but I'd agree with the other ladies and say go for what you think is right. I'm impressed you're willing to wait until 2012 and can actually pick a place now for so far in advance!!

I feel your pain regarding other people trying to make you feel bad about your big day. My FI's brother flat out told us that if he had to pay to go to Mexico for our wedding, he didn't know if he was going to go. I would understand if this had come from someone who didn't have a lot of money, but he is very well off and even just bought a boat! gah
My step-mother has given me great advice that I think you should follow as well "This is your wedding, you do whatever you want." She's right... while it's nice to try to accommodate others and listen to their opinions, not everyone is going to be happy, and ultimately you get to decide whatever you want!
Have a great wedding day, and don't let others spoil it

So just give it time, and she will come around, I am sure of it.
2015, LOL!!!!! 2 years of an engagement has been enough, in my opinion.. any friend who gets in engaged I tell them not to wait to long to get married cause then it just stretches out, get's annoying and frustrating.
Good luck xoxo
