We started planning straight away. We got engaged in february this year, and are getting married in March next year. I had already done some research (yes I was waiting for my proposal for about a year
) and we had discussed that we didnt want to get married in Australia. Once we were engaged we took about 2 weeks to decide 100% on Hawaii and a date, then about a week to find the right wedding planner for us. We are keeping it very casual, but even now with just under 4 months to go, its starting t o get a bit stressful.
I suggest start planning!
