    That’s a good idea! I always wish I would’ve started planning my wedding before I was even engaged. It’s just too overwhelming to start deciding what you like/don’t like. Make your choices now so you know what to do in the future! ๐Ÿ™‚

    @Liss13:  i look at and save pictures of dresses, but only because i am planning on making mine (someday), so i want inspiration from serveral places rather than trying to copy one dress. i saw one on this website the other day though, that i am seriously trying to hunt down because it is AMAZING.

    like you said, might be a bad idea since tastes/styles/availability change.

    I have some things planned, and over the many years we have been together my bf has had some suggestions and we have swapped ideas. I just thought it would have happened sooner!

    We want to have a smallish wedding, and I have a running guest list of people that constantly morphs as people move in and out of my life (you know you’ve been waiting a long time when your prospective guest list only has half of the same people it did originally).

    I look at dress sites fairly regularly.

    We’ve got a color scheme picked out.

    We want our two best friends to be his best man and my man of honor.

    I want to have a father-daughter song with my dad either in place of or in addition to a father-daughter dance.

    We want to walk down the aisle together…

    Wait. We’re planning a wedding. Why aren’t we engaged? *Facepalm*

    I am already married.  Never thought in a million years I would like planning.  When all was said and done I SWORE I would never ever look at anything wedding again.  I got so obsessed it was ridiculous!  Thank goodness I had three months only to plan because I think my family would have disowned me! 

     

    I now wish for someone anyone close to me to get married soon just so I can help plan and look and browse, ETSY was the BEST!  I bought a crapload of props for our photo booth and got the biggest high off it.  My husband didn’t know who I was!!!  IT was great!!!!!!!!!!

    I guess I don’t consider it “planning” when it’s just saving pictures and browsing ideas. That’s just fantasizing and fun =). I consider it “planning” when you are actually contacting people, making payments, doing DIY’s, etc.

    You are not weird at all!  I was a waiting bee too….finally got engaged last Dec!  I had alot of details planned before the proposal….who cares!  If it makes you happy to browse wedding things, go ahead!  It has not taken away from the wedding planning one bit for me ๐Ÿ™‚

    @Liss13:  I’ve looked into some venues and such only because of pricing because my folks are financial planners and want to know how much they need to save. Also its given me a grasp of how REDICULOUS the wedding stuff is! Shesh. 

    I will not put a deposit or anything down or buy a dress until we are official though so its all good. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I have a separate pinterest just for wedding ideas.  You’re definitely not alone – and I know my proposal won’t be here any time soon.  It’s good to know what you like so you can get everything in order right after you get engaged and don’t have to stress as much.
