i’ve started kind of planning and we’re not engaged yet. although i do know we’ll be enagaged in the next 6 months, and in 2 weeks we’re putting the deposit down on a venue so technically i think it’s allowed!

what kind of talks have you had? is he really hinting? i’ve been with my guy for almost 4 years now and we’ve spoken about marriage since about 2 months into the relationship – still, it hasn’t happened yet.

don’t set yourself up for disappointment. and don’t expect that it will happen on the holiday. i’ve read many a report of girls thinking their guy would propose on a certain day, he had the ring but didn’t think the timing was ‘just right’, she’d blow up in his face and he’d get sad because the proposal wasn’t like what he’d had in his mind.

stories like this make me very sad Frown

i started looking on websites and on pinterest for a while. i went through phases where i was like ‘ooooh this would be nice!’ and then stopped thinking about it. i’ve been doing that for roughly a year now – but i never had my hopes set on a certain date or anything. there’s nothing wrong with looking – but don’t let your expectations get the better of you.

@MissThespian:  You are crazy, but then so was I!  And I am quite certain so are the majority of ur fellow bees!  Heck I looked at wedding dresses before I even MET my DH!  Can’t wait to hear what happens in the big trip. x

I don’t think you’re crazy! I think most girls dream of their wedding and like to think about things. If you know for sure that he’s the one and it’s going to happen, I don’t see a problem with planning 🙂

I dont see a problem in planning at all!  I’m a planner by nature and so if you told me “You have a year to get everything in order for the biggest day of your life, I think i would lose my mind.   Having ideas (and boards on pinterest) is nothing to worry about.

Now if you sent out invitations….

A few weeks ago I started doing some generic planning….just getting my thoughts together on what I want and how much things cost.  Boyfriend or Best Friend has NO idea though, and I keep it to myself and will do so until we get engaged.  No harm in having a little fun with ideas!  I started a profile on the Knot this week, just to start saving my ideas, but I haven’t told anyone!  sshhhh!
