    May 14,2022!
    No, it isn’t . We have been engaged since March and just signed for our venue this week. Believe it or not, other venues didn’t have our date available. We still have so much more to do. It’s going to go by so fast.

    I don't think it's too early to start planning for a wedding next year. A lot of venues and vendors are already booked for 2022 due to 2020 & 2021 weddings being rescheduled. We're planning on having our wedding in 2022 as well and have been visiting venues/started planning. The way I see it, you'll never regret at least starting to plan/look. Every bit helps when trying to sort out what you and your partner are looking for. Good luck and enjoy the process!

    You should definitely start planning now, I only say this because stuff comes up and you don’t want to be stressed when you should be enjoying every moment. I planned my wedding two years later n advance so my answer is it’s never too early!

    I do not think it’s too early! We knew what venue we wanted months ago and were waiting for one year from the date in order to book. With all the weddings that were rescheduled and cancelled many vendors and services are getting booked up ASAP.

    I’ve done so much already, my wedding is 5/21/22. I’ve booked caterer, photographer, videographer, florist, DJ, photo booth and venue. So I’ve done quite a bit so far. Also I bought my dress, which they told me was taking about 7 months to even get in! So I’m glad I’m doing it early.

    We're hoping for late May or early June for our wedding...and we have to at least start planning because venues are booking up already! And some things take a lot of planning. Definitely not too early!

    The sooner the better, our wedding is in May of 2022 and we’ve booked all vendors and planned almost all the details. Understandably, COVID is still a concern but all I can do is pray and hope things are more normal next year.

    I honestly don’t think it’s too early especially if there’s certain vendors you want. I have my wedding almost planned out completely and it’s May 2022. There’s a lot of brides that pushed their wedding out to 2022 that had to reschedule from 2020 or 2019 because of COVID. I think the sooner the better. It helps to save up money throughout the year too instead of last minute and some people even offer discounts for planning ahead. But that depends on the vendor! But it’s totally up to you it’s your wedding so there’s no right or wrong time to plan! You do you girl!! And congratulations!!🎉💕

    I am getting married May 6, 2022 and have started planning! I think it is never too early. Weddings are a costly expense.

    It's never too early to start planning. If you go onto Google, you can find a few different checklists to help you out with a timeline of when things should be done. (keep in mind it is a rough estimate. so you don't have to follow it exactly).

    My fiance and i have been doing a little planning here and there but the real fun doesn't begin for a month or two. but the earlier you start planning, the less stress you with have the closer your special day gets. just enjoy the process and don't stress Smiley smile

    Mine is May 21, 2022 and everything is already booked. It has been a pretty stress free process and now that it’s all booked I feel so relieved. I was concerned with COVID that it would make things difficult so I started as early as possible.

    I’ve been planning for mines since March it’s good to book who you plan to use now as dates are filling up as I search and you have time to make changes instead of waiting til last minute. Just my opinion

    I started for my May 2022 wedding in January. I even ordered my dress in February at the advice of a wedding planner friend - she said with COVID, there has been a shortage of material and labor sourced here and other countries. I just finished the last major vendor contract - really glad to have most of it done!

    It is never too early or too late. There are many factors to consider from the venue, to the dress and who you are wanting as your bridal party..at the end of the day if you can say you don't feel rushed and you are happy and don't have any what if's then when you start is no issue.it is all about you and your significant other and the vision you have for your day.

    You can start planning now especially when it comes to the venue and the reception area.

    It is absolutely not too early to be planning for May of 2022. We started planning as soon as we got engaged, in May of 2020. Most of the big things are booked or finished. I definitely recommend getting the biggest head start you can.

    It’s better to get stuff done way before then too late! My wedding date is also May 7, 2022 and I’m already looking at venues, have my dress, our rings, and everything planned minus the food and venue

    There are some things that can be done to early but most things are great to get out of the way. The sooner the better I always say!!! A couple things that are key to do early....
