So I was talking to my BFF last night..(shes single) and I was telling her that I picked a theme for my shower and bach party already… but I am already planning her shower and bach party in my head. lol (and on my computer) when I come across things I think she might like, I save them to “her” file so when she is engaged I can attack her shower and bach party with full force! lol! And of course be there if she needs help with wedding planning. She LOVES it!! One of her friends (who I have recently become fb friends with) told her that she literally spent hours looking at my e pics and wedding stuff on pintrest and had plans on becoming real friends with me so I could help her plan! LOL!!!! To which my BFF responds (jokingly) that she already has dibs on me! How funny is that?! Are any of you bees planning ahead for your friends?? Or is that just me? lol

@MrsNeutrino: I wish! Most of my friends are already married. I was very involved in helping them plan though!

One of my friends is (secretly) engaged and I am SO EXCITED to be planning for her, even though it will be a ways off before we’ll get to do any parties!

@techie: thats even more awesome! You got practice before your big day! Have your friends been pretty involved with helping you since they have pretty much been there done that?
@GoddessofNerdvana: lol! Im right there with you. You think that *WE* are the ones that come across as too pushy? I am really hessitant about that.. thats why I am focusing on my duties ..bridal shower and bach party! She says she will most likely get married in mexico (where shes from) so i am not sure how much of a help i could be on that point.

@techie: Same! Most of my friends are recently married. I was involved in several of their weddings so I had a little bit of a jump start when it was my turn.

@MrsNeutrino: Not really, but mostly because I moved out of state right before I got engaged. 🙂 I learned what to do and what NOT to do from those weddings!

My sister is only 22, and finishing college, but she is my Maid/Matron of Honor and I’m already thinking of what I can do for her when she gets married – hosting a shower at my house (hopefully we’ll have bought one by then!), planning an awesome bachelorette… Its fun to plan ahead!

- Wedding: July 2012 - Baltimore Museum of Industry
I’m saving all the bridal magazine/ goodies from the bridal expo (photographer info, venues, etc.) for a friend who’s getting engaged this year (her Boyfriend or Best Friend said they’re getting engaged this year, so okay!) I have great spread sheets with venue info, and checklists I’ll pass on.
I’m also thinking about offering to design their save the dates- did ours, which turned out really cute. Would be nice to help someone else plan, without any stress!

I am among the last of my friends to get married so I actually have a lot of ideas for my own showers/parties but since I’m not planning them cannot really use. At least this way I can learn from their mistakes and events and know a bit more of what I do and don’t want.
