I think it’s a good idea to have a lot of things researched especially if you are going to have a shorter engagement period.  I know how you feel about the controlling micro manager.  I really like to be involved in everything and know how things are being done.

Totally what I did.  I’m a project manager… therefore, I am a self-imposed task master at her finest.  Project manager’s really shouldn’t be allowed to plan weddings… my head feels like it could implode from the small details I have yet to organize and place in my timeline.  Geesh.

I have a folder on my desktop marked “ONE FINE DAY” & it has a gazillion photo ideas, an ongoing list aka “THE FACT SHEET” of ideas that pop into my head at random parts of the day…I mighttt even have a guest list started 🙂 Included on “THE FACT SHEET” is everyyyy venue I could possibly imagine wanting to have my wedding at….and also two separate folders for DW’s that I have considered having if I don’t get married in Tampa. By the time I get engaged, I won’t NEED a year to plan! 😛

@linspurdu: OMG you are soooo right! I’m a project manager too and have put so much on myself, but strangely thrive under the tasks/pressure. It’s sick.

@jackie-o: I totally get you with the “lack of information causes anxiety.” Because of this I don’t think there’s anything wrong with planning ahead – I think it’s a wise decision!! It will definitely save you time and effort. My fiance is constantly laughing at the fact that I’m not “obsessing” over each and every detail. What I don’t tell him is that I’ve been planning for a while 🙂 Also, if your man is anything like mine, he needs 3-4 options, not 10-11 to choose from. So see, you’re totally not making it “me me me” you’ve got him in mind as well!!!

Of course planning the big stuff ahead may give you a lot of time to focus on details and the thousands of diy projects you could be doing….scary LOL.
