should I, shouldn't I
Posted: Jun 3, 2006 11:46 PM

Hello everyone.....I have been reading and feel so much love in the room so I'm going to share my "weight on my shoulders".  My boyfriend soon to be fiance', hasn't proposed but yet we have set a date.  Is it wrong to start making wedding plans and he hasn't even asked yet?  Here's the thing, Im military and I'm going to down range so I'm trying to get as much as I can get done now before I go.

Go for it. MY FH and I have been together for 11 years, since high school. We also set a date without it being completely official and we only told our parents and closest friends. It wasn't official until this past Christmas, and I already had my dress in September, and my bridal party picked.

The sooner you get started the better off you are, and then you also don't have to worry about people wanted to put their two cents in about planning once thay all find out.

Yup. I agree with Cookies. FH and I have been together 5 years. I still don't have my ring.  But we started planning for it 2 years back. (There have also been a few postponements). But an even better reason to start getting everything ahead of time. Good Luck to you!

FH & I have been together for almost 9 years.  We've known we were getting married for at least 6 of those 9 years but we just became engaged in February.  I've been collecting stuff for years to be used for the wedding when I saw stuff I liked & got a good deal & I was just stashing it away.  I'm glad I did that because it's easier financially and isn't as overwhelming now trying to plan a wedding in 6 months time.

Go ahead and start planning. My FH and I are planning and I don't have my ring yet. Actually I said say I'm planning and he usually just says "Whatever you want babe." We're not offical yet but have a date picked, wedding party thought about but may change. I'm actually going to look at places for the reception in 2 weeks with my mom, to get some ideas and see what I like. It could never hurt to atleast start getting ideas. Then when it really is time to start planning you know you what you want and what you don't want. You can see from people on here what works and what doesn't. Esspecailly if you're going away, time can go by fast and you'll probably need all the time you can get so you don't have to rush and do stuff half ass. You can also do more barganing and comparing, if you have the time to.

If it is than I have been wrong for quite some time now. I have been planning my wedding for about half a year now, and my BF knows this. But he has not yet proposed hahaha it is so much FUN! so i say go for it but dont make too many permanent plans :)

i definately say go for it! the actual proposal itself is something you always want, ya, but it doesn't need to be a prerequisite to planning your wedding.

Go for it! We picked where we were gonna get married and the date before the engagement... and let people in our family know. My FH asked his best man to stand up for him before the engagementas well.

We knew we were going to get married within a few months of being together and started talking out ideas around that time. We got engaged 1 day before our 6 months and it helped having things started with ideas especially since we somehow just settled on getting married before the end of 2010.

Friendship is a wonderful base for love...

This thread confuses me. In my book, if you have set a wedding date and are actively planning a wedding (choosing your WP, scouting out venues, etc.) you are engaged. Ring or no ring; elaborate formal proposal or no formal proposal.
