Sometimes wedding planning can feel like another job! On average, couples spend nearly 2 hours a week planning their wedding and spend 80% of their time planning online. How many hours a week do you spend wedding planning? Is it over or under 2 hours?

    Over - like way over. I feel like I spend at least 6 hours a day planning but to be honest a lot of that is just waisting time on WW or pintrest

    Eh if you average probably under. Once I made choices there wasn't much to do. I'm not one to go back and forth.

    I'm less than two months out, so I'm at the 2hrs per day level!

    Are we talking actual planning or scrolling through Pinterest and WeddingWire? If those count, I'm over. Way over.

    I would say over but not by much. Actual planning vs. browsing are definitely two different things.

    Definitely under! I only needed three vendors. I probably spent on average 30 minutes per week researching.

    In the beginning, definitely over, now that most of the stuff is all set, it just depends on the week!

    Way OVER that. I don't work, so I don't have much else to do. We haven't started putting down deposits or full payments yet, but once we have the funds to i'm going to be pretty much done with plans. I know not everything will go as smoothly as I want, life never does, but i'll be ahead of the game

    Under for sure. It only took a few minutes to send the emails we needed. Now that we have everything booked we hardly ever do any wedding planning.

    Definitely over while I was figuring out my vendors, and then there was a lull where all I'd do was waste time on WW. Now it's picking back up because I'm finishing up DIY projects, so over again.
