I am definitely a little guilty of that… Though I’ve known my venue since I was 14! I have worked at the Brookfield Zoo since then, and helped out in the Catered Events Dept so I knew that’s where I wanted to get married 😀

But after I met the guy I definitely thought about colors and everything, but I stopped myself from making any real decisions until he asked me!

Yes– and it was a huge help. I had ideas of what I wanted, so when we got engaged we were able to quickly hammer out what we could afford, who we wanted there, and where we wanted it. By quickly I mean that 3 weeks after we got engaged we have a date, budget, cupcakes, rough guest list, venue/food/linnens, church, and priest. My Fiance thanks me for doing all of the prep work because it means that decisions are so much easier once the baseline research is done.

Well, yes.  We decided we wanted to get married in December 2010, but I didn’t have a ring until October 2011.  We put down plenty of deposits in that time! 

But I am of the opinion that you are engaged when you decide you’re engaged, so I’m not sure that’s what you’re looking for…

lol duh!  I already had a list of venues that I wanted to look at, and my colors picked out.  I also had tons of dresses bookmarked.  He knew about all of it and didn’t mind 🙂

Well…yes. We were talking marriage (always brought up by him), and I knew the ring was coming because he accidentally almost spoiled the secret, then my mom blurted it out one morning before she had her coffee and told me that I “never heard that”.

Anyhoo, it made planning so much easier..the venue, the colors, details…. It was definitely a huge help. But I didn’t make any major decision planning until I had the ring.
