I haven’t done much actual planning but I have a couple of venues and vendors in mind. I finally requested packets from them online last week and gave my caterer friend the heads up that next summer is looking promising. And of course I have tons of stuff pinned on pinterest. SO will only discuss vague details with me before he proposes because he doesn’t want to give anything about the proposal away so I don’t have a date yet other than next summer or early fall. I just hope he gets on with it soon before everything books up!

I have some things in mind, but no actual planning. No money down or money spent on anything, really. My SO and I talk about venues and honeymoons pretty often now.

No formal plans but we have talked about where we want to have the wedding and where we would like to honeymoon. We’re not looking at a wedding until late 2014/early 2015 so really there’s no need other than that.

And just occasional things like “I’d like to have this” or him talking about what sort of suit he’d like.

I have thoughts, ideas in my head only. No purchases or downpayments made, no ideas shared with SO except the few venues i saw online.

SO fell in love with a venue and wants to go in next weekend to put the initial payment down to secure the date (yep, we already have a date). I want to say woah, woah, woah, back up a minute buddy, you haven’t officially proposed yet! But I fell in love with this venue as well, so I guess the ring can wait a few more weeks (not months lol).

 

Anyway, as far as planning, if we make the committment next Sunday, we would have ceremony/reception location and catering decided, as well as hotel decided because there is a hotel next door!

I have  a million ideas and I know there are certain things I really want but I’m not going to start really planning and putting money down until I have a ring!

No real planning for me except some ideas for color schemes, bridal hair styles and photography (i’m already thinking of places I’d like to take engagement pictures). I will wait until I get the ring to really get into it don’t want to get my hopes up to high just yet

I’m pretty set on some preferences (ski lodge, winter wedding). However, I have no idea how long the engagement will be or where we’ll be living when the wedding happens, so there’s no point in doing anything more than just brainstorming at this point.

No firm plans, just an idea of a possible state/time of year… and we both have already agreed to a color scheme. No purchases made yet,  but I’ve got my wedding shoes picked out because they were really expensive once-worn bridesmaid shoes. 🙂

I have planned A LOT! LOL!

I have the majority of everything picked out (in agreement with SO) from invitations, to venue etc. HAVE NOT and WILL NOT put money down on anything without a ring/proposal. And so I wait….

I’ve planned… on eloping.  I’ve got my SO 80% on board now that he knows how expensive weddings are.

I admit to contacting a few places, just to get an idea about what we can honestly afford. And, I am addicted to pinterest and have a wedding board. But other than that, nothing else!! I dont want to ruin the fun of the planning once the time is really here, and I dont wanna jinx anything!
