It's time for your first confession!! Whether it was looking at wedding dresses online, saving your favorite wedding trends on pinterest, or slowly starting some initial venue research... did you start any wedding planning before the official proposal??

Are you innocent or guilty of planning before the proposal?

    The only thing I really did was make a Pinterest board and save some of my favorite dresses and decor ideas, but that still counts as planning I guess so, guilty.

    I had a Pinterest board of wedding stuff. But after we got engaged I bought a binder and created a very organized binder of wedding stuff and information. It's a little insanely organized but I make sure to update it when I need to.

    I started planning after we discussed and agreed to get married, but before the formal engagement with a ring and everything.

    Definitely guilty. Started a wedding board a few months before we got engaged, nothing too intense just dress styles I liked and a bunch of color schemes. None of which are the one I actually picked in the end!

    No. I didn’t even have a wedding Pinterest board! I knew for many years that we were going to get married. We didn’t start actually planning our wedding for two years after being engaged.

    I had a few rings and dresses picked out on pinterest lol. We started talking about it and I knew which venue I wanted, but I waited until I got a ring before contacting any vendors.

    I don't know that we had a formal proposal. Once we discussed it and agreed to be married, we considered ourselves engaged. We decided not to have rings. So I guess all the planning was done before the formal proposal.

    Not seriously. I had a secret Pinterest board years before I started even dating my now husband and would post stuff every now and then. I didn't use any of it for inspiration for our actual wedding lol my tastes changed drastically since I first created that board back in 2013 lol

    Hmm....somewhat guilty, I guess. I didn't plan like my dress or colors or anything. Someone we knew was getting married and when we RSVP'd, her website gave me inspiration to do our own wedding website lol.

    I did some stuff. We’re getting married young (I’m 18) so we had been talking about it for a while so I definitely had some ideas. Then the ring took longer than expected so we were looking at vendors and stuff to at least have some stuff started! So very guilty lol

    I did a pinterest board and went to some bridal shows to just get some ideas. I knew the ring was coming and wanted some ideas!

    After we went to look for rings and I found the one I wanted, I started building a pinterest board of dress and decor ideas a couple of months before he actually yes, I would have to say I am guilty

    No I did not because I never thought we were going to get married. We had been dating for 10+ years!
