It helped me to think about the money I already put into things. I was trying to keep the budget as low as possible, so I wouldn’t let myself change anything or put more money into it.

I think the best decision we ever made was to just do it. We had 9 months and I’m glad we did. I am watching one of my bff’s (19 months) keep changing her mind about everything over and over again. I can tell it’s really wearing on her. It was nice to know that when I started making decisions I was stuck with them.

I agree.  We have 18 months, and I keep second-guessing everything.  UGH.

We’ve had a 23 month long engagement. I’m already horribly indecisive, so having that much time has really frustrated me. I’ve changed my mind about the colors at least 5 times. We’ve got about 14 months left and it’s really starting to get even more stressful because I know crunch time will be here before I know it…

I think it depends on the type of person that you are.  When we got engaged, we had 19 months to plan things but where I am planning, a lot of things get booked up over a year in advance.  I like having the time because I can do the DIY projects myself and not rely on my mom and sister to help when it gets closer.  I’ve found that we haven’t changed our mind on many things at all.  I designed our DIY invitations and am still absolutely in love with them and I’m slowly making them.  So it depends on the person, we decide and haven’t changed our minds. It helps if you stop looking also πŸ™‚

We will have had less than 4 months from engagement to wedding.

If I had more time I would have DIY’d some additional decor and been able to save up more to put towards food & drink.

But… it’s worth it to me not to have to deal with all the shitty stress and craziness from my family for anything longer than four months.  πŸ™‚

Knowing what I now know about wedding planning, I think no one should ever begin working on wedding details until you’re within a year of the date.  Booking venue and photographer, sure… but the little details?  Oh hell no… those must wait.  It’s too easy to drive yourself bonkers with information overload!

For me its the opposite.  There is no way I could plan a wedding in 4-6 months and be happy with it because I do change my mind a lot.  The longer I have to plan and process the more my ideas come together.   I’ve been engaged for over a year and I still have a little over a year until the wedding.
