Im very new to these boards but I soooo wish I was looking up stuff to plan my wedding! Speaking of… anyone already make plans for their wedding or have definite ideas? One of my friends booked the reception hall before she was engaged! I used to think she was crazy but now I give her so much credit bc she got her man to propose soon after that.
As for me, I admit, I have planned little stuff. I already know what type of dresses iw ant my bridesmaids to wear so I had necklaces hand-made to coordinate with the colors of my wedding (black & white, accented by yellow) I will try and find a pic of the necklaces to post. I figure I’m going to get married someday, why not just buy the necklaces when i can get a good deal on them and thats one last thing I have to worry about! Hopefully only a couple more weeks to go until actual planning commences.
Am I crazy or do you have a similar story to share?! This is similar to the decorating I want:

Welcome!! I LOVE the necklace!!! No your not crazy. How close are you to getting engaged?? I’ve been waiting for 3 months now and I’ve been planning and meeting w/vendors already!
NEVER to early to plan, however, just one thing to note is not to get your heart SET on a potential dress for the Bridesmaids b/c they get discontinued all the time. And by the time you have to select and go shopping it may or may not be there!

My boyfriend and I have already decided some of the big things we want at our wedding, like the venue, the food, ect… but before he “officially” proposes he does not want to book anything or go into any detail. I can’t wait until I can freely plan either!

Welcome- I can’t start planning until the proposal is official, afraid I might jinx things but I love seeing what others are thinking so keep posting!

I have been pre planning but I change things all the time mostly the colors so who knows. My SO and I talked about the type of food we want etc… Although we are a ways away from being engaged. I’m a planner so it keeps me busy while I wait. I haven’t booked anything I’m not going that far.

We had a date picked out Sept. 11th, 2011, but we had to change it. (for a good reason 🙂 But we do have a beach wedding idea in mind.

oooh – I love the necklace! Yellow is such a great accent color for weddings. 🙂
You’re not crazy at all for planning ahead. I was doing it too. I’m unofficially engaged now and ready to start planning away even though the ring isn’t on my finger yet.
