I sort of did.  Two of my bridesmaids got engaged before my wedding – one is getting married in September, and the other is getting married in October.  Not that close, but still helpful!

One of my bestfriends got engaged a few months before me.. She’s hoping to get married in September also but because of financial issues she’s not really planning anything.. But she’s been great talking & looking at stuff with.

Nope. My planning buddy was my Fiance… we had so much fun the first few months after engagement choosing the venue and vendor. Then we got to the dress and decor and other more detailed decisions and he vanished!! Now I’m going crazy trying to think of all the ideas and make all the decisions by myself πŸ™

A wedding planner doesn’t fit in the budget, so I have to get me a planning buddy! πŸ™‚

I had a coworker and on the day we worked together we would just plan and talk about plans. it was perfect but I moved and now it sucks!! My best friend got engaged in the summer and her wedding is in january so I am giving her ideas and helping her plan but she is in florida and im in pennsylvania soon to be back in ct so it sucks because I wish I could do more for her because I’m basically all done!

Not really.

A friend had a 2010 wedding, but she never wanted to talk wedding, secretive me thinks haha.

Another friend of mine is planning a wedding, but we never really talk wedding & I try and avoid it. I don’t know, I don’t care about idea sharing, but you have to have the right sounding board y’know?

Yeah I have one friend getting married this May, another getting married this September, and another getting married a month after me in March 2012. None of them know eachother though. πŸ™‚ One’s an old friend, the other is a college friend, and the other is a work friend. Haha. My whole life is weddings!! Jk.

One of the 3Ls I’m good friends with is getting married this summer, so it’s great to visit with her. 3 other girls in my 2L class also got engaged this summer/fall, so there are also other girls here to bounce ideas off. It’s always nice to have the bee, though, to talk about my extra-exciting things that I don’t want to share with local gals. πŸ™‚ Have to keep some element of surprise when there will be 4-6 weddings within a few months for my class.

Crisark works with me and we talk about it all the time. We are having two completely different weddings but it’s fun to talk about things.

Nope, most of my friends got married a few years ago.  (I’ve been a bridesmaid 6 times.)  Luckily my fiance is very interested in all the details, so he’s my de facto planning buddy.

Yes I do ! And I feel pretty lucky about it. My twin sister got married in December and we spend at least 4 hours a day talking online about my wedding ideas, and we did the same for her wedding all last year.
