So here’s some background. I got engaged 4 months ago and have been doing some research but haven’t planned a single thing. Decision making is not my thing. So I thought I found the perfect venue in Philadelphia, played phone tag with the lady for like two weeks, and finally find out last night that they’re doing major renovations starting in April and lasting for at least a year. My heart is set on everything being outdoors, so the way I see it, my options are:
Plan for this September – (the fact that it took me four months to find a venue I like may not bode well for my ability to do literally everything else in two months, right?)
Plan for March and space-heat the &%$! out of that place.
Suck it up and find somewhere even better to get married.

I say try for March, if that is a venue you love then that should be the venue you get to have! And it gives you more time to plan. OR my other suggestion would be wait until the renovations are done

Personally– I’d go for this September. If you’re an indecisive person, the timeline will help keep you on track and making decisions because you wont have timne to waffle aback and forth a million times– you’ll make decisions and move forward. Personally, I’d rather have a stressful 2 months where I did everything, than a longer engagement where I went back and forth all the time.

I think I could probably (maybe?) pull it together that quickly, but I’m afraid that’s not enough notice for the guests? Pretty much everyone will be coming from out of town.

I think I’d just find something else. You have no idea how long the renovations will actually take and you don’t really want to chance.
Planning a wedding in 2 months is doable but do you really want to. You’d have to pick, print and sent invitations right now to give guests time to make plans (and most oot guests might not be able to attend on such sort notice). If you are wanting a small wedding (less than 60 people), then I say go for it. Three people I know that recently got married did the planning in less than 5 months.
