Well, while I’d like to say ‘go for it’ and start looking…that’s what I did and it totally made me nuts. I kept waiting and waiting, and was planning everything without actually booking vendors, and it just made waiting harder.

It’s totally up to you…

Just ask yourself if anything you’re doing is something that would really weird out your boyfriend if he knew. If it is, you can probably consider reigning yourself in a little. If not, go ahead if it makes you happy.

I did a ton of research pre-engagement.  I think at one point, Darling Husband and I had a conversation about it (since we had discussed our future marriage, and the engagement too FOREVER and a day).  

The only thing I’d caution you about is falling in love with a particular plan.  I had a lot of details figured out (venue ideas/options, caterer ideas/options, font, invitation style, colors, etc).  When it came to the actual planning, Darling Husband didn’t agree with my ideas… so, my ‘perfect plan’ had to be scrapped as we came up with OUR plan.

OUR plan ended up being the perfect plan …. but it was just a little discouraging at first – since I didn’t realize how involved Darling Husband would want to be in the process and how much input he’d have.  So while I had been dreaming of a particular venue.. it didn’t end up being that way.  Which was fine… but I am still emotionally attached to that venue and still think about ‘my’ wedding there… if that makes any sense.

Have fun dreaming… but make sure it doesn’t get too out of control! 🙂

Right now, we’re pretty much engaged, but I’m not going to say we’re engaged until I get my ring 😉 That said, I guess it makes me a waiting bee, but I am always looking for ideas. The other day I was at Marshalls and they had dresses in the exact shade of pink that I want my bridesmaids to wear FOR $40! I swear I just about bought them then and there. I really wanted to, but thought that might be a bit crazy haha.
