How long were you engaged before you busted into wedding planning mode?

We waited about 4 months until we seriously started planning.

I'm interested to hear what everyone else says!

    I looked for a venue right away because I was moving out of state but after that I waited 6 months because I was living out of state and just wanted to wait until I moved back!

    We got engaged in November and started looking at venues during December. We decided on a January 2014 date and I just finished planning last week. I like to get things done early!!

    Its been about 10 years!

    I was and never have been in any rush, just not me. I was in school and really not interested in a wedding at the time either. After having our son I am like why not. Smiley smile

    Depends on what you mean. He proposed 3/30/13 and I started looking online/ Pinterest/ etc that night in our hotel room haha. We figured out our budget within a week. But we have our first 3 appointments with potential reception venues this Thursday. This would have most likely been taken care of already but we live over 2 hours away from where we will have the wedding (the area I grew up) and it has been difficult to make a day work for both of our schedules with his demanding job. Also I am still in school and have 2 part-time jobs. But hopefully we will get everything figured out in the next week or two and then I can truly "set our date." Smiley smile

    We got engaged in July 2011- we booked our venue in October 2011- I found WW in January 2012 and posted fairly regularly but not quite as actively as I am now.

    I really got into planning around September 2012 because we were a year out and I wanted our major vendors booked. Took some time off and now I'm back in full swing for our last few months!

    Once we got back to our tent.... we were camping.. he looks at me and says "I'm pretty sure you have this all planned already, don't you". But actually the next couple of days since we had an 11 hour road trip back home!

    We talked about ideas, budget, etc., but didn't really start planning and looking at venues until we'd been engaged for about 2 months.

    I got engaged in November and we started looking at venues in December. But the search was hard and it took nearly 4 months to find the right venue. I kinda did not do much for a couple months but now that our venue contract went through I'm in full planning mode
