    Relax and enjoy being engaged. Don't choose your bridal party or venue, your gown or anything else. There is time for that in the last year. Just enjoy each other a while, maybe save some money, and be happy.

    Thank you Judith! We chose our bridal/groom parties before he proposed since they will need time to save for travel, my sister is fairly poor and will need time to save to for traveling and same with my God sister, but we haven’t and won’t choose anything else until the end of the year and beyond!

    Congrats and welcome!

    Take a look at the "Planning Tools" tab, above, for cost estimates, checklists, and search functions.

    I recommend setting up an email JUST for wedding stuff (you can get spammed like woah), as well as having a physical book/binder for all your notes and things.

    Hi Rebecca! Thanks so much! I definitely already set up a separate email 😂 as I don’t want my current email being flooded and bought a wedding planner that I can start filling with ideas soon! We have our colors picked out and our date but other than that, we’ll figure out inspiration as it goes! Thank you so much!

    Thank you so much Leigh! When he mentioned proposing, we sat down and looked at rings on Etsy together that we liked and put them into a favorites list. Then I shared the list with him so he had it. So that way, when he was ready, all he had to do was buy one of the rings we already liked together from the list and I wouldn’t even know! This one was our favorite so I’m so thankful he picked it!

    Your ring is so pretty! 😍 I got engaged 12/18/20 and started planning early this year for our 11/11/22 wedding which is pretty much two years away lol. Never too early to plan and less to worry about! Happy planning and welcome to the engaged gang 🥰

    Congratulations! I agree with a previous post. Enjoy being engaged and let it all soak in. You will see that once you start planning time will move SO fast and you're just going to be immersed in everything wedding. If you want to start with anything, just start thinking about an overall vision of what you want, but since you're 2023 that could change along the way too. Just enjoy this time.

    Congratulations!! How exciting!! I was the same way when I first got engaged. I said I would wait a while before beginning (because who’s in a rush, right??), but found I just couldn’t wait to get started! I found it’s never too early to start collecting ideas (and a Pinterest page, if you don’t already have one!).

    Congratulations to you too Tatyanna! And thank you so much! I’m enjoying this time just being his fiancée! But I’m also definitely taking some free time to look at inspiration! I don’t want to be stressed at in the last year of wedding planning, that sounds awful 😂

    Thanks Michelle! We have an overall idea of what we want but we are booking anything until the end of this year/early 2022! I will be asking my bridal party soon so they can save as some live in different states, but other than that, we’re soaking it all in and just enjoying each other and looking at inspiration!

    Thank you Ava!! We have a general idea of what we want and I know how I see myself in my wedding day so I’m definitely collecting inspiration! We’ll save booking things until the end of the year/early next year! But I definitely don’t feel like stressing out all 2022 so I’m definitely excited to get some things out of the way earlier!

    Congratulations. Nothing wrong with getting an early start lol. I started planning like over a year and a half out, and I'm so glad that I did, it allowed me to really take my time and not rush decisions. And on a few occasions I got stuck and was able to take a step back and not think anything wedding related to clear my mind. Good luck and happy planning. 🙂
