Hi everyone, im a newbie here and been visiting for a while but just decided to register todayand join all d brides out here. I got engaged to SH in December 2011 but our plans have been a bit on hold cause SH is presently in grad school abroad, we are in different countries at the moment(*sad face*), he needs to graduate and finalize his plans and i need to sort out my plans too.(im inbetween jobs at the moment..need to get one fasssttt but its been a bit challenging). We need to sort out where we would live and all that fine details and sometimes it just overwhelms me. I know this is the right thing to do but im just a lil bit impatient.*covering eyes*. i lovvveee to plan and been looking forward to planning my wedding but until all these listed above is sorted, i cant seem to move on.. Any bee out there feel me?

@spicybee: I think working out the realtionship details first and then the wedding is the way to go – figure out where you would live at the very least. A really important part of wedding planning is budget, and that is probably going to depend highly on your job and living arrrangements, which dictate how much money you can save.

Sounds like you realize that you should be in more solid circumstances before you actually marry, which is great, but it doesn’t mean you can’t plan now! There’s so much you can do without actually having to book or necessarily buy anything! Use this time to become familiar with all of your options for the hundreds of things that need to be thought about for the wedding. See where you can get the best deals, look into any DIY projects you may want to start well ahead of time, keep your eyes out for the smaller things you could use at your wedding. Just from looking at Wedding Bee and being inspired by so many other people’s ideas makes me want to wait as long as possible before any wedding happens so I can absorb everything and come up with the most awesome stuff for myself. I feel like the list is endless, and then it will all feel so worth it once you’re actually ready and have everything in order, which doesn’t sound like it should be all that far away anyway 🙂 And by the way, my boyfriend and I have basically already started planning and he hasn’t even proposed! Plus I will be in school for the next 4 years, so I feel you completely.
