What hypes you up for planning?

Hi all! I was just wondering what you all do to get into the planning mood? We're a long ways out (Sept 2020) and not really in a position to make any concrete planning decisions yet, but I still like to get excited about it. So I've been watching more tv shows and movies to itch the scratch, lol. Of course there's Say Yes to the Dress, but I've noticed it's not as entertaining now that I've bought my own dress, haha. I just found a show on Netflix called Cheapest Weddings that my niece and I are watching, which is exciting since we've got a pretty small budget. I've also loved the movie 27 Dresses for years now. Then of course there's the forums here.

What do you guys do/watch to keep you busy when you're in a planning lull?

    I just finished watching Christmas Prince:A Royal Wedding on Netflix. Is Cheapest Weddings a good show?

    I'm further out than you. I haven't bought a dress yet. I hope to get our venue contract this week we had to move our date from 10/10/20 to 11/7/20 to go with this venue. After we have the venue which includes catering and cake we want to book in the following order: photographer, dj

    We're finishing up the first episode now and it seems good so far! It's set in Australia so some of the issues and resources they have are a little different, but I'm enjoying it.

    Wow, you are on top of it! Way to go!

    We're having a pretty low-key affair and are pushing most planning off until next Spring when we'll have been able to save up some more and my schedule won't be as crazy. The dress was a surprise, I stumbled upon the perfect one second hand for less than half the price and everyone told me I couldn't risk passing it up, so that's the only thing we've gotten done so far.

    Venue/catering and photography are probably the only thing we will do until summer 2019 and that鈥檚 just because we鈥檝e already ran into booked venues and want to have our engagement photos done next October

    What kind of venue did you end up booking?
    We set our date for our anniversary and it falls on a Tuesday so I'm not SUPER worried about booked venues, but after reading that maybe I should be a little more nervous, lol.

    A ballroom at the local university. I think the thing my fiance and I are the most worried about is the proximity of our date to Thanksgiving. I think with a Tuesday you should be fine depending on what route you want to go with your venue. We started looking at venues and catering a week or two after we got engaged so we would know how much money we need to save each month.

    I鈥檝e been trying to make my way through my YouTube playlists. Trying to figure out what would be good to play during the reception. I mostly listen to country, so working on other genres to play. Lol
