Hi Ladies, I dont think it's too soon, then again, I booked my ceremony and reception for January 14th, 2012. I've picked my centerpieces, favors, colors, wedding party and have meetings with JP's, DJs and Photographers. We've been engaged for over two and a half years, and together for 7, we see no need to rush, we're young and paying for this huge expense ourselves so we are planning now. By we I mean me.. my fiance just tells me to do as I wish and he'll show up I read something on a board, if you have enough time, spend only an hour a day on your wedding planning and get the big things booked as early as possible to reduce stress and not feel like you spent all your time for a year on only one day and become resentful. So far my biggest pet peeve is people telling me I have too much time, or venders not caring to call me cause I have 'plenty of time'. The way i look at it, I have to pay for this, I need the time to save, and if i were having a baby people would say, "it's going to grow up so quick!" i'm sure January 2012 will come before we know it! Congrats to you all! Happy planning!
