The average engagement lasts around a year, so that would mean that wedding planning also lasts around a year, right? Think again. According to recent surveys, many women are starting their wedding planning long before the proposal.
A survey of British single women showed that over half began planning without being engaged, and some admitted that their early planning had scared off previous boyfriends. Eleven percent had chosen their wedding dress, and a third of those had made the purchase.
It makes sense that wedding planning is starting earlier, though. With so many great wedding websites to give inspiration, it’s easy to come up with plenty of firm ideas about what you do or don’t want for your wedding day.
When it comes to planning your Connecticut wedding, though, there will be some big parts that can’t be done until after you’ve said yes and chosen a date. For all of these elements, and more, attending a Wedding Steps bridal expo is a great way to make your planning easy and fun. Find out about our upcoming shows here.
