Hi fellow brides and brides-to-be! Our wedding isn't until next May but so far I have booked our venue for the ceremony and reception, our caterer, and our photographer just to get an idea of how much money I have to spend. I'm getting a lot of snarky comments from people saying that I'm planning too early. I'm not sure if it's because I'm overly sensitive or that they're right. I think I'm just anxious about the whole thing. I have a very strict budget and by planning this sixteen months early I feel like I have a better idea of how much I want to save every month. Any thoughts or comments?
I am currently trying to book a venue and am looking at several vendors. My wedding is October of 2022. I'm of the mind set that the earlier you plan, the better off you are, either if something happens that you need to change, or to avoid the last minute stress as the wedding approaches. Also, the farther out you book, usually the smaller your payment amounts are if you go on a payment plan.
I don't think there's anything wrong with the rate you're going. I got engaged Feb 2020 and our wedding is in September 2021. By August 2020, I had ceremony and reception venues, caterer, photographer, florist/coordinator, and DJ lol. I even had my Save the Dates out in October 2020! So we'll just be early planners together!
It’s not too early .... it’s better to be prepared than rushing towards the end . I got engaged August 22,2020 and I immediately went to planning the next few days . Our wedding is July 3rd and I can say I’m glad I went hard early because Were one payment away from our final payment to the venue . Everything else is paid for and ready to go, giving us more time to enjoy each other without stressing ..
We got engaged and literally a month later we booked our venue and been on the roll ever since. We aren't getting married until November of next year. We are doing what works for us. I personally do not think you are doing things too early. I do believe that you are going about this smartly. Whatever naysayers you have, do not even matter,
I'm revisiting this post because my fiance and I booked our venue and I bought my dress for our Sept. 2021 wedding on the tail end of 2019. Now I'm concerned that we may have jumped the gun and started too early. With Covid and things slowly reopening we are hopeful, however, we also aren't sure we will be able to have the wedding we started paying for. We are trying to stay hopeful, but it seems like money wasted at this point.
