When is it considered TO early to start planning a wedding? I’m getting married with-in the next two years and I wanted to go ahead and start now so that I’d be prepared and have everything picked out and ready. Also should my bridesmaids buy their own dresses? what are good finger foods? Im so new to this and I really don’t have any help besides my fiancee :/

I’m starting now and my wedding is 15 months away and everyone says I’m doing it too early!! But I’m like you and I want to have as much time as possible to iron out the details, plus I feel like its less stressful
As far as bridesmaids dresses go, I think it depends on your budget and your bridal party and where you live. My bridesmaids all offered to buy their dresses, and brushed off my apologies when I said I couldn’t afford them, stating that they were supposed to. However, I think that if you want absolute say in them, you should buy them.
As for finger foods, find a catering company and get their menu to find stuff you like. That’s what my fiance and I did, and then ended up going with a venue that does their own catering and won’t allow outside catering so we’re back to square one.

A good thing to start doing right now is just look around. You don’t have to commit to anything yet, but it’s good to just start getting a feel for what you like. If there are certain things you are set on (like a location), I don’t think you’re too early to start booking IF you know you want it.
Also, yes, typically the bridesmaids purchase their own dresses, usually after settling on an appropriate cost that they can afford.
ETA: I am planning a wedding in about 7 months… I wish I’d had as much time as you!
