@FutureMrsDM:  I feel like you can pre-prepare whatever you like!  As long as it is a situation whereby no one is made to feel pressured or uncomfortable then go for it!  By the sounds of it you are very close to being engaged anyway.  I love a bargain.  

Looks like a lovely purchase.  Enjoy it when you are ready to!

@FutureMrsDM:  Hahaha, thats okay! It’s cute!

My sister bought me the “A Practical Wedding” book.
And I have already bought our invitations (They were $100 invitations on clearance for $10… I couldn’t pass that up!!!)
I already bought all 4 bridesmaids dresses. They were on clearance and being discontinued and $30 each, originally $130. So my girls and I went and bought them. I LOVE THEM.

I have no regrets. I see it that there’s nothing wrong with buying stuff for a wedding that you KNOW is going to happen. And, when I find good deals on things I LOVE, I will NOT pass that up!

@FutureMrsDM:  Also, I totally have a wedding planner with essentially the whole wedding and reception already planned, from the guestlist down to the silverware, and everything inbetween. I have no shame in that. Hahah. And he knows about it all and is all supportive. We know we want a short engagement (less than 6 months long) and he wants me to plan the whole thing… so starting now works for us.

Its actually very smart of you!! Im still waiting, but have a binder ready and TONNES of things planned already and have even ordered an invitation sample online.

Just look at it in a way that as soon as you are engaged there wont be any time wasting…You’ll have it all mapped out and will save money by also knowing your options. πŸ™‚

@FutureMrsDM:  Haha yeah, seriously don’t feel bad. That’s why I’ve started planning! That way I get all the stress out of the way now and can actually ENJOY the engagement! You always hear of stressed out brides-to-be… and I vow to not be that! And while doing it all now, I’m still really excited about it, and not dreading it, so I don’t mind doing all the planning now. Haha.

I even have the venue… family has been offering their BEAUTIFUL land for me to get married on since I was in high school. And SO LOVES this land… the very first time we went there (before he even knew they offered this land to me) he said “I would love to get married here!” Also, I know that my church signs out tables and chairs at no cost, so I will be doing that as well!

@LeonardLady:  I agree! Planning ahead, especially for a wedding, is never ever ever a bad idea. I’ve heard that the worst part of an engagement is the flooding of questions, and it’s true. As soon as I talked with my parents they inundated me with questions (my mom demanded to see my Pinterest board ASAP!).

My Fiance and I talked about weddings long before we actually got engaged. We started collecting ideas together that we really liked and it has taken so much pressure off of us instead of immediately thinking “Oh my gosh, what am I going to do about EVERYTHING?!”

What a gorgeous planner!

I’m a waiting Bee too and am also gathering info and putting a folder together – my man is deployed and encourages me to do it to help the time pass πŸ™‚
