Jennifer Love Hewitt recently gave an interview where she said that she already has an engagement ring – or three – picked out, despite not currently being in a serious relationship. And she’s not the only one who plans ahead. There have been episodes of Say Yes to the Dress where women who aren’t engaged buy wedding dresses. Considering that Hewitt has already had one broken engagement, I’d expect her to be slightly more cautious about planning hypothetical weddings. But I’m just a really superstitious person, so maybe I’m projecting my own insecurities onto others.

Have you ever picked out or purchased something for a wedding before being engaged? If not, would you?
