Hello, congrats, and welcome!

May I offer some advice already?  When you’re ready to pick a date, make sure it’s at least a year out, because you will seriously need that much time to reserve your venues and services, find a dress, etc etc.

Is that your engagement photo I see?  Luv it!

Welcome!  I know you are anxious to start your planning.  I remember those days…they seem so long ago.  Now I am a one-month-away-from-wedding, so-sick-of-planning-I-can’t-stand-it kinda bride!  Enjoy these final moments of unwedding-planningness.  At some point you may find yourself saying something like this to your fiance, “Oh, NOW I get why people elope!”  

Once you do start your planning, do your best to enjoy it.  There are some moments that are very fun…others that are just ugly.  Just keep it all in prospective, and keep reminding yourself of the reason you are going through all of this…at the end of it you will be marrying your man! I have found it also helps to book a totally awesome honeymoon…so in those stressful moments you have something wonderful to look forward to! 

 

Good luck!  I hope this post isn’t too much of a downer!

BTW- Beautiful ring! 

And to the above poster re. booking everything 1 year in advance, don’t feel major pressure to do that.  We will have had only an 8 month engagement.  While there were times when I felt some mild stress/pressure because of that, overall I am so glad we didn’t have a year…that just mean 4 extra months of stress and wedding planning! We were able to accomplish everything just fine..and we were able to book every vendor we wanted.

@MzMarzipan: Hi date twin! Not to get away from OP but I’m totally agreeing with you on the boring stuff! Seating charts, calling people who didn’t rsvp, having to get more of everything because of extra guests…not as fun as the rest of it.

@MzMarzipan: LOL I hear ya on the long-term stress thing!  Actually what I did was secure my venues, photographer, DJ, etc and then take it easy for a few months, since most of the details didn’t need to get hashed out until a few months before the wedding.  It probably depends on where you live and how fast vendors get booked.  I had several venues, photographers, and hotels turn me down because they were already booked a year in advance for my date!

Congrats and good luck on the bar! and i totally agree with Corgi, i’m not sure i would’ve been able to resist wedding planning as a procrastination tool, so i’m impressed!  It’ll all be over soon though, and then onto the fun stuff.  One month to go! 🙂

Oh and beautiful ring!!
