Planning too far ahead, is there such a thing?

I really don't know I am doing everything a little too early . but with covid its has changed so many things.

Am I the only one planning a 2023 wedding ?

I thought it was best to avoid all the rearranging 2020 caused to 2021 that any one planning a 2021 weeding might have been shifted to 2022 ... that's what's happening right ?

I like to be organized but I need someone to tell me if I am over doing it ?

Also if I do plan this early , who is fair to expect from vendors. Should I be putting a deposit down now for my venue or do I wait ?

Do I actually start action things or do I keep things in the idea phase?Even when I know its what I want?

    A binder is definitely a good idea as well as hard cover note book to take notes when you go visit venues or speak with vendors. Once you start seeing more than one you’ll want a way to keep things straight. Make sure you have a list of questions prepared, I had the ones from the wedding wire site copied into the front of my notebook so I could refer to them easily.

    Congratulations! Getting organized is never a bad thing! Get a binder and start building an idea book, or a Pinterest page of what you like and you will see a trend. Start gathering swatches to see what colours you like, think about what flowers you love and what style of flowers you like. Then when you hit the planning hard core you will know exactly what you want!

    It's never too early to start planning! I would start looking at your options and if you can, book your venue and vendors as soon as possible! Dates fill up very fast with venues and vendors. If you can get them early enough, you can lock in a early deal (price) because prices sometimes go up the following year.

    Planning can start now to secure all your major vendors and venue for your date. This step would be good to know you have everyone on board on your team. Deposits would have to be put down as they would require security on your part of the contract. Some venues may not keep the same price as charged if they decide to increase their rates. Be aware and read through the contract as well.

    Other vendors such as florist, decorator, and more can be arranged 6 months ahead once you organize yourself with colours and ideas to show what you want and price range to compare for the best deal to get. Small items can be stored in a corner or space available at home months prior

    Organization is the key thing since I had done the same and in many ways. There were many formats made to keep track of retail/online purchases, guest list to Seating plan, bags for wedding/reception/outfits, and usb back up plan to avoid losing the information. The more important thing to do is also keep a binder or folder with all the contracts, emails, speech, Wedding schedule and receipts together to take with you if any information needs to be found or calls to be made.
