Take it from this girl, who is 16 days out from the wedding: there is no such thing as too early!  I’ve been working steadily on wedding details, 4-5 nights a week since July, but it’s paying off because my to-do list is not too horrifying right now. 

In the coming year, your desire to plan is going to come and go, so I’d take advantage of the times you feel like getting stuff done!

I can’t relax if there’s something to be planned but at the same time I’m not putting pressure on myself. For me, I’m ahead in planning (according to weddingwire’s timeline) but I’m spreading it out and appreciating the time gaps in between. It’s just the suggested timeline shifted 3 mo ahead for me ๐Ÿ™‚

I say the sooner you can get stuff done the better, especially if you have the time now.

Get it done early! You will burn out, but then it will be okay not to plan because things will be done.

get it done early… i swear it was one of the best things we ever did.. I had the last two weeks before my wedding NOT running around, it was all taken care of. I had the week off before the wedding and my Hubs had 3 days off before hand because he thought he might need to help. we had a fabulous 3 days hanging out together and doing odd errands. It helped us be less nervous and family less nervous also.

And that way a year out, you can always put a break on it when you feel a little tired and theres no pressure ๐Ÿ™‚

I think if you’re confident in your choices, that your tastes won’t shift too far between here and there, then go for it! Men never understand!

I think that’s totally normal.  Its also normal for you FI to not understand.  I wouldn’t stress a thing.  I do think that eventually you’ll reach a point where you might want to pump the breaks a bit.  And that’s fine too.  I’d go from one spectrum to the other.  From being so happy to plan the details to not even wanting to look at someone else’s wedding let alone plan mine.  It ebbs and flows.  But no matter what, the end result will be a beautiful wedding.

We started planning early.  I was doing mock ups over a year out.  I don’t think it hurts to work on ideas early, just be sure it’s what you really want before making any big purchases.  Definitely take advantage of the time you have now, and if you feel a burn out coming on just take a break.  I’ve had a couple weeks long breaks just so I wouldn’t burn out.

Happy Planning!
