  • Wedding: October 2013

I think you can do some preliminary things – scope out some caterers/djs/bands/ etc online, think about what type of dress you want, decide if you want a theme, etc. but I personally would not start full on planning until I was engaged. If he agreed to October he must be planning to propose soon, right? I would hope!

  • Wedding: August 2014

Just ask him upfront if you can. I’m in a similar situation – we’re planning a large wedding during a popular season (August 2014) and we aren’t getting formally engaged until December.

When he said that he wanted the late summer 2014 wedding and a December 2013 engagement, I said that was fine but we’d probably need to book some places and do some work before the ring. He said great, we’ve already started booking – and looking at other vendors.

If he’s on board for serious planning, go ahead with it, because if you’ve agreed to get married in October, you’re technically engaged. If he isn’t, you will 100% want to begin at least collecting ideas if you plan on the short engagement. Especially where the dress is concerned. You could also put together lists of area vendors that have good reviews who you could call.
