I was obsessed. At first I was more in prom mode though and I had a prom binder full of decorations, dresses, hair styles, makeup looks, etc. I would ocassionaly throw a wedding picture or two into the back pocket of it. When prom time came I was the “prom coordinator” and boy was I ready after 8+ years of planning.

As soon as prom was over I started the “wedding binder.” My friends laughed and called me “Monica” all the time. lol. What can I say…I like to plan, and to plan well πŸ™‚

@mrs.peters.to.be: I didn’t want to admit it, but I had a binder too! It’s obviously grown since getting engaged and planning my real wedding. I don’t get why people think I’m crazy, I’m just organized!

ETA: And I was also on prom committee (we didn’t have coordinators, just a committee of people who were equally as anal about planning as I was).

No, not at all. I didn’t start thinking about marriage, much less a wedding, until I met my fiance.

Nope. I didn’t even want kids! In fact I swore against them the second I found out where they come out, until a few years in with my SO. Then I turned into one of those ladies who swoons over cute baby bumps and baby clothes, and secretly prays for a gorgeous ring and wedding day.

Ugh, terrible!

Nope! Not at all πŸ™‚ I knew I eventually wanted to get married, but I didn’t sit and dream about how big & gorgeous my wedding was going to turn out.

Nope…in fact I was pretty much anti-marriage until I met Fiance. I come from a big family and always had to share a room, bathroom, closet space, etc. with siblings. I was looking forward to life with my own space and no other voices in the house but mine and my TV…LOL.

Then Fiance came along and I can say that he is worth some of the privacy that I will be giving up. I actually enjoy planning stuff…just for other people. I am not really a fan on being the center of attention…which is one of the reasons why we are keeping our guest list so small Laughing

Another nope.  I’m surprised by all the no’s.  I always thought I was in the minority of little girls who didn’t dream about it…. Just  another thought the wedding industry placed into my head

I never dreamed about my wedding or dressed up as bride as a child.  It seems like a lot of people expect that I have though.  Every time I meet with a vendor, the vendor looks at me (and NOT my FI) and asks detailed questions about what I want/like.  I usually don’t know.

Me too! I was much more into Legos than Barbies anyway πŸ™‚ Didn’t really hit me that I had any wedding preferences at all until a few years ago.

I never did as a child, but I knew I was going to elope since I was sixteen!

No… and we ended up eloping.  However, closer to the wedding I did obsess over the actual ceremony A LOT.

Personally – no, I wasn’t one of those girls who’s dreamt of her wedding her whole life.

Around the time we got engaged, my Fiance and I were working on getting a house and am not a fan of getting married on paper just to say you’re married for the legal reasons for being a homeowner nor do I want to elope.  For me that was important for various reasons and I want my family (and friends) at the ceremony/reception when I say ‘I Do’ for the first time. πŸ™‚

As for having ideas for the wedding though – they certainly were developed more after I got engaged though. haha.
