@givemecouture:  3 months is doable! I watched my coworker do a wedding in 3 months last spring. I would say be really diligent with securing your venue because everything should kind of flow from there. And often times venues will give you a discount at such a short notice if they had that date open. It’s because they’d rather have discounted business than no business, lol.

When I was at the bridal salon the owner told me a girl had come to get a dress for her wedding…which was only two weeks away! It’s possible for you to get one 2 months before. You might just have to look a little harder, or maybe settle on something beautiful that doesn’t need alterations.

I think as long as you give yourself a handful of tasks each week, you should be able to pull this off very nicely. I actually may end up being in the same boat as you. We have been engaged for a year and had already started planning, but we scrapped those plans and have been brainstorming for a while now. We don’t have much time til the date we wanted, so we will probably end up putting something together very quickly like you, or eloping! Good luck!

We’re doing ours in 4 months, and that’s with getting a dress that needs alterations.  I’m sure you can pull it off.  Invitations can take a little time if you order fancy ones, but we ordered ours from VistaPrint, and they arrived in about a week. We’re sending them out this weekend, which is 2 months before the wedding.

I don’t understand how some people have these 2-year long engagements. I think I’d go crazy having to think about wedding plans for that long!

I’m planning my wedding in less than one month. I already had my dress and venue though. We didn’t send out formal invitations because there isn’t time. We set up a wedding website where people could RSVP and sent out links to it with an explanation as to why we had to move our wedding up.

I’m not sure if 3 months is enough time to order a wedding dress and have it altered. I kind of doubt that it is.
