I;d chill. There will always be deals, and at Michaels, there is ALWAYS a 40 or 50% off coupon you can use on a smartphone or print at home. You could change your mind about so many things in the next year even though you think you won’t. You might even find even better deals on something you never even thought of but love so much more. Take it easy!

She needs to chill, there is no harm in you doing things early. Better to have it done than to be panicking at the last minute because you have a huge list if things to do. Why does she want you to wait anyway? How does it benefit anyone for you to not buy the things you need for the wedding?

Yes.  You’re a crazy bride.  Just kidding.  If you are finding what you need now, then go for it. Less for you to do as u get closer to your wedding date plus you’re saving money.  Tell her to chill out, it’s your wedding. Wink

I think if you’re a decisive sort of person than you should snap a deal up while you can, but if you’re the type who tends to change their mind a lot you may want to wait. After all, the tone of a venue may change what you want for decor.

When I got engaged last August,  I was pretty eager to get stuff done and started buying things also (ribbon for reception, things for the invitations etc.).

Weve since then found buckles for the invitations cheaper and had to return all of the ones that I purchased early, changed the colour for the wedding so had to return all ribbon.. and a few other things.

If you love it, go for it, but be careful, your ideas may change orrr you may find a better deal somewhere else.

I think it’s awesome, I had all my planning done months ago and know I am just enjoying everything and finishing up a few things here and there. Btw, where can I find a michaels coupon? 🙂

batwoman… you make a good point about the tone of the venue. We had to change the colour of  our wedding because initially we were going with a venue that had black and white decor so we chose silver, white and tiffany blue for our colours.

We ended up switching to a hall where the colours were golds and creams and suddenly all the tiffany blue was NOT working anymore and was looking like a hot mess, so we had to change the whole colour scheme.

The venue can dictate a lot because you dont want its decor working against your colours etc. Its something big to think about.

Good for you on all of the deals. You aren’t being crazy. Some of the things that have to come with time are overwhelming so I say go for it.

If you’re having fun, go for it. Plus, I always think if you prepare ahead of time there will be much less stress when you get closer to the day.

I am the same way! There is a reason for long engagements! Okay maybe 90% of the time it’s not so you have a lot of time to plan, but I am still about 10 months out, and I have sooo much stuff done. About all the same stuff as you actually, maybe a little more. I definitely don’t think you are crazy haha I think why not! especially if you’re a decisive person.

I think if you’re a person whose taste doesn’t really change, or is ok passing up “even better” things later, it’s fine.  I’m probably biased because I was only even engaged for 9 months, and kind of planned the wedding in about 7 once we found an opening at our venue earlier than we anticipated… so everything was a last minute decision.  I say go ahead and plan, but don’t let it end up costing you time, money and frustration in the future.
