I don’t think it matters.  You might get some comments at the engagement party for having such a long time until the wedding though.  If you are leaving in 3 weeks though, there is really no reason to rush either.

So you will be engaged for 3 years. I would start planning in the 3rd year (1 year from your wedding date). Normally when you book a photographer you can get your engagement photos included in your package, which will save you money rather than doing separately.

Also, if you take your engagement photos now they might be a bit dated than in three years from now. Fashion changes pretty drastically and what might be in style now may not be in three years from now.

I suggest waiting on the engagement pictures, but ultimately it is your decision.  I know how hard it is to be engaged and have to wait so long to plan, but you could create an inspiration book for yourself so you will have all of your wedding ideas and inspirations in one book and have an idea of how you want your wedding to look when it gets here.

Good luck! Have fun in France! 🙂

I say wait until closer to the wedding, many of those type of events happen a little bit before you get married- so since you are waiting 3 years, then there is no rush.

Just my opinion… I would want to have the engagment party shortly after getting engaged. After all, that’s what you’re celebrating; you’re engagement! I feel like if you wait a couple years it wont be as special to you because you wont have that engagement glow like you do soon after getting engaged. But whatever you decide I’m sure will work out just perfect. Good luck!

I agree with previous posters – I think having the engagement party sooner as opposed to later is a good thing – celebrate!  The rest of the planning can wait though.  That gives you plenty of time to figure out what you want.  🙂
