To answer your thread’s title question, I wasn’t planning before we were engaged.  I was looking around and gathering pictures and idea but not finding vendors or anything like that.  Your vendor choices might change drastically once you finally have a budget.. btw do both sets of parents know you’re counting on them to contribute?

Also, I don’t mean to come off as mean but if you can’t get engaged because you don’t have the money, how do you expect to pay the 1/3 for the wedding?  It’s just a practical question…

I’d take it slow and take time to save money and plan thoroughly, even if that means pushing it back from September.

My Fiance and I decided around Christmas that we’d get married September 2013.  I’ve been planning since, as I live in a metro area and time is a factor if I want what I’m planning 🙂


Fiance hasn’t even gotten a ring yet.


The deal for us was for me to go forward with planning and for him to get the ring and surprise me.


We’ve told the people who we feel won’t judge us for planning prior to engagement.  The others will have to wait until I have a ring to show them.
