That’s great!!!

We were on the planning fast track too but only because we had a short engagement, I would have piddled around for a lot longer if we had more time.

Had you done planning beforehand?

I think that’s great you’ve gotten so much done.  We’re a March couple too.  It took us a while to finalize the date/location, and so far that’s the only thing 100% done.  We’ve got it down to 3 photographers, about to sign with a videographer.  I’m going dress shopping this weekend and the Save the Dates will be done soon.

@sweetpea1031:  Already married.  We had a 4 1/2 month time between when he proposed and the wedding.  But we didn’t tell our families for a week or two since we were going to see them in person.  I had a lot of help planning from both our moms so otherwise I’m not sure it could have gone off so smooth.

Of course there is nothing wrong with having so much done.  Just be careful about continuing to do research on things that you already have decided….otherwise you could be setting yourself up for venue regrets, dress regrets, ect.  That’s the only drawback I could see.  My “wedding vision” has changed a bit since I first set a date, and so I’ve changed my mind about a lot of things (luckily, no deposits lost).  If you know you won’t change your mind, then just relax and be proud of yourself!

It sounds like you are doing great.  You have the most important things booked (venue, caterer and DJ) and a few personal things (dress, coffee).  It sounds perfect.  None of those things need to change between now and March, you are always going to need them.  Now you get to have fun planning the FUN stuff.

I am a March 2011 bride also.  We have booked the venue, and lucky enough to have the DJ, caterer, minister and ceremony included.  I bought my dress in May.  So, obviously I think you are doing perfect.

I think you are doing great! We got engaged last August and our wedding isn’t until March 2011- I was right in the end of my first semester of nursing school when he proposed so we knew we’d have a long engagement!

I booked our venue in January/February and the ceremony site we booked in March (as soon as we booked our venue on March 5th we told the pastor, but we officially booked it in March), the photographer we booked in March, and we just booked the DJ. I got my dress in May- so you are doing great!
