My wedding is 2 years away. My FH and I are paying for it ourselves so we set a longer engagement to help with this. I found a few things we both liked for our wedding so I purchased them....is this too early to be doing this? Am I crazy for doing it so early? HELP

Thank you! This is my hope. I want to be ahead of the game so we can relax before the big day and not stress. Also not be running around at the last minute. We are lucky enough that we have a great family that has offered to store things for us plus we are storing some stuff at our place as well.
If you have somewhere to store everything that I would say for sure start buying now! It will help spread out the costs and if you need to DIY for anything this will give you a bunch of extra time for that as well! We got everything done early and we had next to no stress the last 3 months before the wedding so I highly recommend starting asap
Décor rental wise, we paid a deposit and the remaining at the time of pick up. Purchasing can be anytime you choose. Favours were very early too for us and you may not be doing anything as a keepsake. Edibles can be arranged a month ahead of your choice if choosing this path.
Thank you everyone for the kind words! It made me feel less like a weirdo knowing that others have done it too. I have gone super crazy (yet). Just picked up a few things, some at ridiculous cheap prices. We grabbed our guestbook which is a wish jar at a business that was going out of sale for $5. A Mr and Mrs for $2 for free because someone lady was throwing it out after her garage sale and table runners because I love love loves them.
It's never too early if you have a set theme or ideas ready to go! We started buying things here and there and closer to the wedding we found we didnt like them anymore or they werent working with our design (we changed centerpieces probably 4 times) I would say for sure start looking! If you find something you LOVE go for it! But dont go too crazy just yet!
