So my boyfriend asked me to marry him and I couldn't reply because I was in that much shock. So he then said he wants to get married in the next 2 years. Does he think I rejected him or does he think im not sure as he said that afterwards?
1) Since he's only 23 and wanting to get married at 25 and the bride will be 22 in 2 years, is that too young to have a big wedding? or medium sized wedding? Since we both will have just gotten out of university then. I'm just thinking ahead, since i'm planning to start saving now for the time ahead?
Please Answer ALL of the questions

No one has any idea what your boyfriend is thinking. . . except your boyfriend. Haven't you had the follow-up conversation to tell him that the answer is "yes, yes, yes!"?
The size of your wedding is largely dependent on what you can afford, the size of your family and list of friends that you and your families will want to invite. The number of guests does not have much impact on the cost of the wedding ceremony, but a large wedding with a dinner and dancing can easily add $75-100 per person to the total cost. You need to have serious discussions with your parents about budget and sharing the costs of this event.
You should definitely begin saving money as soon as possible, and at least browse web sites to determine cost of renting venues, catering costs, etc., so that you can estimate a per person cost. This exercise may dampen your enthusiasm for a large wedding. When I got married in 2011, we had 130 guests, a catered full meal, open bar, and live band. The total cost was around $20,000.0

Congratulations!!! Mmm I have pretty strong opinions on this so hear me out first. I feel like both people should be well established and ready to take this step together before going through with it. So financials, family matters, living conditions, etc. All of these require significant time to figure out and at this point in your lives I don't think you have enough stability to be able to formulate a strong plan for the future. That's just my opinion on this. I do think it's young to be married, the size of the wedding will depend on your budget and how much you want to spend on what.2
