So I’m newly engaged and finally signed up (I’ve been lurking for a while) because I’m wondering if I’m starting to think about plannig too quickly… It’s only been a few days but I am tempted to plan for the weekend before Thanksgiving because 99% of the out of town people (national and international) I would want to invite will be here then, but my FI is pretty ambivalent about the whole thing… I don’t want a fancy production, so I think I could make that timeline work, but am I rushing it by starting to think about logistics already?? When did you FI (if ever) get into planning??

No…I started about a week later and that was only because we were out of town at our daughter’s dance competition when he proposed. FI only gets into planning when I ask him about anything. It’s never on his own.

Sorry, are you saying you want to start planning the weekend before thanksgiving or actually have your wedding in two months?
I plan events for work, and a two month timeline is not THAT difficult, besides possibly the dress and if you have any other specific vendors that you’d be heartbroken if you can’t use.

Do you mean November 2012 or 2013? If it’s 2012, damn right get planning NOW! Even if ts 2013, you might as well start planning. Some venues book fast. We booked ours 22 months in advance.

My wedding is going to be December 2013, and I just started planning.
We’re not “officially” engaged yet, but he already has the ring, and the last step for him is to ask my dad for his blessing on Friday. Since he’s going to be gone October 9th-November 17th, Nov. 26th-Dec. 13th, and then he deploys in February, he wanted me to start planning before he “officially” asked so he could be as involved as possible. 🙂
I’m pretty sure he’s officially asking the week of Thanksgiving, though!

I started planning as soon as we decided to get married. I had about 9-10 months to plan… wedding is in 2 months and I feel like it was a good amount of time.

I had 8 months to actually plan.
