Weddings often planned before a proposal

Planning for a wedding typically starts when the man proposes, but there are women who are jumping the gun, according to Mail Online.

Rather than waiting for their beau to drop down on one knee before starting to look for event venues and key parts of the ceremony, some ladies are working out what they want from their big day even if their lover has not hinted at popping the question.

Sarah Bush, who has been with her boyfriend for two years, is one such wedding-ready girl; her friends apparently joke that she could probably get married one month after getting engaged, because all the plans are already in place.

The 23-year-old said: “I’ve been planning my wedding since I was old enough to know what weddings were. I had Barbie and Ken married over and over and over again.”

Huffpost Weddings highlighted how the concept of ‘single bridezillas’ first started gaining media attention following an article in the February issue of Marie Claire, but the online newspaper wondered whether it was an invented trend and asked Twitter users what they thought.

The responses featured showed that, while some people are baffled by those who are making real plans for their wedding before actually having a fiancé, there are others who are sympathise and are sometimes doing the same.
