I personally don’t think you’re being crazy organized…especially if your starting to pay everything off already

I don’t think so.  You’re likely getting your first choice in regards to venue and it’s awesome you have so much time to pay off your dress.  As long as you don’t start second guessing everything then I think you’re good πŸ™‚

I don’t think its crazy. I know people who have gotten everything done a year or more before there wedding and most of them ended up changing things…. because they rushed into planning and regretted things( dress,venue,flowers)… just be very sure if you start to pay for something it REALLY is what you want.

Well I’m getting married in June 2014 and I sort of already bought my dress (I got a sweet deal on my dream dress in a sample sale) plus by the end of the month we will have our ceremony and reception venues booked! Nothing wrong with being organised πŸ™‚

it’s good to be organized.  nothing wrong with it.  you will have a better idea of how much of a budget you are going to need.

I don’t think you’re crazy. However I do caution you. My Fiance and I have had a bit between our engagement and our wedding next year. In the beginning I had all this stuff planned and worked out…..but that was in 2010 and almost all of that stuff has fallen through. Our original venue plan didn’t work out. The colors we decided on are no longer in play. I’ve added a maid to my party. My original dress didn’t work out then I found a dress that is stunning and the exact opposite of what I had intended.

Just remember you can make all the plans and gather all of the ideas you want but you will change and trends will change over the next year or two so gather ideas but be flexible.

Nice job! I’ve done a whole bunch of stuff too.. I have changed my mind a few times but it’s not like I’ve already printed 200 invitations. I just have done a couple mockups and perfected it. And may perfect it even more in the next year… but I enjoy preplanning like crazy and we already have our venue and photographer and limos booked too!

I think I’m taking it a bit far when I start thinking of a schedule for the actual wedding day 20 months in advance though πŸ™‚

I’m at the end of 2013, so I’m kind of in the same boat. You’re excited. Don’t send out the invitations until a few months beforehand and don’t let people off of the board know just how wedding obsessed you are and you’ll be fine. πŸ™‚


I have only been engaged a few months now and I already have the venue, photographer and officiant. I’ll have the DJ shortly once I work out a few things and I’m already looking at dresses.  Frankly, I think planning this far ahead is great, it means you can have plenty of time to decide everything!

I am April 2013 and got engaged April 2012. I am a teacher and knew most of my wedding needed to be planned ASAP being that school was winding down for the year and I would be out for the summer. When I immediately started planning people said I was planning to early. Let me tell you………nothing could be further from the truth! Every vendor I booked was already booking into 2014! The best advice I did get however was once I made a decision (regarding the vendors which to me are the most important decisions) to stick to it and stop looking. I have had dress, venue, date, you-name-it regret, lol. But that’s because I kept trying to compare my day to all the ones I see on the boards.

Trust your instincts and you will be fine. Take your time in planning the details (STDs, invites, favors, etc.) you have plenty of time for those because it’s to early to start stressing out Smile
