As you may know, Mark propsed to me on Valentines day and obviously I said yes What I want to know is, when should I start to plan the wedding? Pleople keep asking me when it will be and we hope summer 2008 (don't think we could afford it before then although I'd like to do it next year if we could) but that's over 2 years away yet! Is it far too early to think about booking a venue etc? I know the sooner you do it the cheaper it can be, but is 2years a bit too soon? Also, where the heck do I start? Do I book venue for the ceremony first and work around that for everything else??? We would like either an outdoors wedding or a castle wedding, but it is expensive and we are on a bit of a budget (as well as the fact I don't see the point in spending an awful lot of money on one day). Mark wasnts to give me a fairytale wedding and to have whatever I want but is it possible on a budget? I'm sure Steph was talking about this before but I can't find the link. Oh and another thing (sorry), as we will propbably have to take out a loan to have the do, how do I know whow much to borrow if I don't plan yet?! To save for it would take forever. Thank you I advance girls, I know you always come to the rescue when I'm having a blonde day!
