I neeeeeed help!! My fiance and I have decided to have a long engagement. I just graduated from college and looking for a teaching job; in the meantime I am a nanny. We will be saving as much money as we can, but I will starting to pay off student loans. So we aren't getting married until 2016. Is this too long? I have already started budgeting, flagging things in magazines, picked out our wedding parties, and have plans to go to a wedding show this weekend. Is this too much? Am I being crazy?
You should probably know, I am a crazy organizer! I have lists and schedules and calendars for everything in my life! So I feel like I am just trying to be prepared. My fiance on the other hand, keeps telling me not to think about all this, we have 2 1/2 years... and I HATE HEARING THAT!!
So I guess, I am asking what is a good timeline for "the important things"? Who to pick for our wedding party? Getting a budget? Looking at venues?
