On A Scale Of 1-10... how fast did you jump into planning?

Once you were engaged, did you race out to start planning right away (10) or did you take your time and enjoy being engaged for a long time before the planning went into action (1)?

    10! We were discussing planning before we were even engaged and I've been slowly saving Pinterest ideas before we were even dating of what my dream day could look like 馃槀

    8...we didn't start planning intentionally but kinda fell into it sooner than we were going to. We started researching to be able to set a budget and ended up booking our venue a couple weeks later

    1. Out of necessity really. We were trying (and then did) to sell our house and move half way across the province. That was the initial delay, but we started like 12-18 month after getting engaged.

    5 since I did start getting vendors to secure our date and having payments made eventually in month or 2 time so that it was surely booked off from others wanting it.

    9. I started looking for dresses right away, mostly because my fianc茅 wanted to get married within a year. 馃檮
    Because I work full time and am also in grad school, wedding planning is only done when I鈥檓 on two week breaks between courses. So, I had to jump on it.

    I would probably be a 9. We picked our date and venue pretty quick and also booked the photographers. All within less than two months of getting engaged.

    I'm about a 7.

    Since we got engaged on our trip I didn't want to start planning then. About a week after we got back into our normal routines, we started talking about dates, locations, wedding party, etc. We booked our venue in the new year (2018) and then went off the deep end with planning (well I did lol).

    10. As soon as we got back from our vacation, I went straight to Pinterest and started cutting my huge board of pins. Within 2 months we had our venue picked and booked!

    10 - we had the venue booked already, and I think our photographer was booked as well when he proposed (yes, I am a planner - I wanted those 2018 rates!!!)

    after that, we consistently booked a vendor once or twice a month. We are less than a year out now and the wedding is basically planned.
