That envelope guest book is adorable!  I would try to hold off on purchasing too much this early because you might change your mind and that’s money wasted.

As long as you don’t change your mind then it is wise to spread the expenses across two years. Just don’t change your mind…haha! I think that’s the hardest part with Wedding Brain and all. Maybe limit your purchases to more generic stuff. Stuff that isn’t custom and can be used regardless of whether your mind changes or not.

I am in the same boat as your are! I can’t gove you any tips to stop but I can sympathize!!

I am even farther out than you are. I have bought paper and envelopes in our colours (not too bad I can use them anyway if we change anything). Also I bought my dress!! Haha It was totally perfect and only $100, I figure that it was too perfect to pass up (in case I couldn’t go back and find it later) and if I do change my mind then it is only $100 and a lesson to myself. And I can sell it to someone else if need be.

I ‘shop’ for all kinds of stuff, but it is more of a search for things that are really fantastic. I won’t buy ‘just ok’ shoes because I am feeling the crunch, I will wait until I come across the ones that really make my jaw drop. Also I have GIANT folder full of all my treasures.
