    @Washingtonian:  I certainly did some research before I got my ring 🙂 I knew that my boyfriend was going to propose so I wanted to get an idea of reception/ceremony venues, vendors etc so it wouldn’t be too overwhelming afterwards!

    Maybe a little bit. Ask what your fiance to be thinks about it.

    @Washingtonian:  if you both are commited to getting married, then you are engaged… a ring does not make you engaged– so go ahead plan away, technically you are engaged ring or not.

    @Washingtonian:  we actually found our venue about 2 months before we got engaged! We had been talking about getting married so we started looking to get an idea of what a reasonable budget was.

    @Washingtonian:  No, it’s not weird to start looking at venuesYou’ve obviously discussed getting married and are planning on it. The ring is almost a technicality at this point. Go look at venues before they’re scooped up. 🙂

    @Washingtonian:  We started planning as soon as he asked.. we really wanted to get started on it!

    He had asked with a solitaire ring his mother gave him specifically for the proposal, and then I picked out & ordered a ring that I wanted.. which came a few weeks later.

    So technically, I started planning before I got my actual ring!

    @Washingtonian:  We picked out the ring and ordered it, and while it was being made I started planning. Before that I had only had very vague ideas, because Im a girl and I like to fantisise 😛 But the serious planning only started after the rings were ordered and we only started “looking and booking” after the ring was on my finger. This was also because I hate the questons when you dont have a ring on, but tell people youre engaged. They look at you like you’re nuts.
