Long Engagement

So, after my boyfriend proposed this month (June 2011), I started shopping around to see how much the wedding is going to cost. Upon discovering how much it is all going to cost we quickly decided on having our wedding sometime in the future. Was it a bad idea to set our wedding so far in the future (Jan 2014)? When should I actually start planning things?

January of 2014 is a little too far away to start planning now. But, if your idea of a wedding is one that is truly expensive, you can start saving now for that costly wedding. Sock away $1,000 a month and you will have $30,000 by Jan of 2014. That will give you a very nice wedding. Now need to start planning until a year before the date.

I think it's ok for you guys to wait, if money is a problem. This gives you time to save money, shop around for vendors, and figure out what you really want for your wedding. I'd say you can really start planning at about a year and a half out. Some vendors book out that far in advance.

i think it's perfectly fine if you want to wait that long; i got engaged about 1.5 years ago; we decided to have our wedding 2 years out (December 2011). i started planning about 9 months ago.

I don't recommend delaying your wedding over 2 years at most. I've seen (and even experienced myself) how long engagements just don't work out... In my situation, it worked for the best but people do find reasons to NOT get married as time progresses.

Really, you can have a wedding on any budget... The best thing about marriage is BEING married, the wedding celebration just marks the beginning of it.
