Wasn’t sure which board to post too…but here’s the question
When did you feel it was time to get going on getting things done. I’m just under 7 months now and was wondering when you felt that…gesh I better get moving on getting things checked off.
Of course the couple weeks leading up to…is a crazy time but I mean that first real feeling 🙂

I was totally fine, not worried about anything until last week. I decided I no longer like our centerpieces or invites, had to finish the guest list, people bugging me about the shower and rehearsal dinner and leaving to go back to school. But now I have no time to get anything done so I’m starting to freak a bit but trying to keep it together!

I’m still over a year out, but I know that once that one year mark hits I’m going to want to get EVERYTHING done right away. I think I would drive myself crazy if I waited until 6 months or less to get anything major done, but that’s just my personality.

I got engaged in September and we had everything big booked by the end of the month. I’m a planner and would have been freaking out if I’d have waited any longer.

@luckyshot: I agree…we had picked a date 18 months away and i had my photographer booked shortly after and looked at different venues just a few months after that…:)

@MrsN14: It does seem to creep up quickly doesn’t it. I recently felt very pressured to get our invites done ( I am creating them) so that means finalizing a guest list as well 🙂

@beetee123: That 12 months seems to be the magic time i think most of us feel that excitement to start. (our enagement time is 18months…that year creeps quickly…so exciting)

FH and I have been engaged since 2010, so I spent most of our engagement doing absolutely nothing. We set a date almost 18 months ago, but it really didn’t hit me until about 8 months ago that I needed to do things. I still have a few things left to do, but I’m almost done. My invitations did go out later than I had planned because it took a few people a while to send me their addresses.

Well, I voted 6 onths but at that point I just had general ideas. Our actual official engagement was 4.5 months, so I just worked really fast.
