Some people can spend two years or more planning their wedding. A lot of work goes into it, and they give themselves lots of time to get everything perfect and save up for the big day. Not everyone wants to wait so long, though. If you don’t see the need for a long engagement or there’s a reason you want to get married as soon as possible, you might be considering planning your wedding in just a few short months. To some, this might seem like a crazy idea, but it’s possible if you’re both willing to put your mind to it.
Go for a Wedding Package
Finding a venue with just a few months’ notice can be difficult, but there are always cancelled dates or less popular days that could be available. When you’re looking for a venue, consider choosing one that offers wedding packages. A venue like Clevedon Hall can make a huge part of your wedding planning easier for you by offering set packages. These packages include some of your wedding essentials, like accommodation, catering and even decorations. It means you’ll have fewer decisions to make, fewer things to source and more time to get the key elements of your wedding right.
Recognise That You Have to Be Flexible
If you’re hoping to plan your dream wedding in just a few months, don’t expect to get everything perfect. With a bit more time, you might be able to plan every last detail exactly how you’ve always wanted it. But when you’re doing things more quickly, you’re going to need to be open-minded and flexible about how things are going to go. From the venue to who is able to attend, you need to be prepared not to get everything you want. But if you’re planning a wedding with short-notice, you’re probably happy to go with the flow.
Do Some DIY
When you don’t have a lot of time, taking the DIY route for some parts of your wedding doesn’t seem sensible. Sure, you might not want to make your dress from scratch or cater the whole thing yourself, but it can help you a lot if you’re willing to DIY a few things. It can save you money, and sometimes even time. Making something yourself could be quicker than trying to source it from elsewhere. Your time constraints mean that sometimes you will simply have to DIY to get what you want.
Keep It Simple
It should go without saying that you don’t want to do anything too complicated if you only have a few months to plan your wedding. Keeping it as simple as you can will help to make your planning easier, keep your budget lower and reduce the amount of stress you have to suffer. However, you can still create a special day that you won’t forget. Trying to simplify everything doesn’t have to mean having a boring wedding.
Just make sure imporant things such as the three-piece suits are ordered as soon as possible to allow time for them to get to you!
Planning a wedding faster than usual might be a challenge, but it’s not impossible. Go into it with an open mind and you can create a memorable day.
