Hmmmm, it might be a little early to go bridesmaid dress shopping, only because it’s a fun thing to do and it will be so much better if you wait until you’re actually engaged…There will always be cute JCrew dresses on sale 🙂 I think you can plan general stuff (type of venue, ceremony, colors, etc) but wait until you have a ring before going into specifics…just my thoughts tho, others might feel differently, welcome to WB 🙂

You can gather as many ideas as you want. There will be no limit to that since nothing can be set in stone with just ideas. Start jotting stuff down in a notebook or a program on your computer. Anything will work but I highly recommend Microsoft OneNote. It’s just like a binder/notebook but on your computer. It has been a great help to me so far. You can type, make lists, copy & paste pictures (and the best part about it is that OneNote pastes the website where you got a picture from. So no worries if you forget where you found something!) You can also do this in Microsoft Word but then it’s not as organized and I don’t know about the copy & paste thing. You can even password-protect tabs on OneNote so anyone sneaky enough won’t be able to see what you do on the computer all day.

I have no ring yet but my FH and I have already booked the venue and photog to secure our date! So really it is up to you two as a couple – i wouldn’t do any definite planning (deposits or purchases) without his knowledge or input though!

i’ve looked at dresses online but that’s as far as it goes. since i don’t know when we’ll be getting engaged or the time of year we’ll end up getting married, it’s kind of hard to do the dress thing.

but i do have ideas of the type and style i want, which seems like what you have now. i wouldn’t buy anything like that though…considering how often i change my mind on clothes [getting ready in the morning SUCKS] i wouldn’t lock myself in. you never know, there might be an even better dress later!

that said, the boy knows i’ve been squirrelling away ideas and projects [he glances at my planning blog that he set up for me] so figuring out a venue, possible vendors, and the general feel of your event is fair game i say! good luck and welcome to the hive.

There is nothing wrong with researching but don’t buy anything until it’s done. It’s a little too much, and it is so much different and better and exciting to shop for things and buy them when you’re actually engaged. It’s worth the wait, I promise!
