i planned mine in 5 – but took a month off because i got super overwhelmed! BUT it can be done – start with the big things – venue venue venue – then move on to dress and things that you wont be able to accomplish while you are overseas i would use march thought to get all your vendors booked and start looking for that dream dress 🙂 little projects like centerpieces can be put off till coming home -. Maybe the month overseas will be a good idea gathering time and when you get back you can jump in and start working on the smaller details – just be thinking about it! good luck!

Can I ask why the date changed? Or how solid it is?

I only ask because 1) you seem really stressed out by the timing, and 2) I know our date wasn’t really firm until we had a venue booked.

@gypsybride: How big of a wedding are you planning? Does it need to be a formal affair, or would you consider a court house wedding or a quick elopement?

Less formal = less planning, generally.

ETA: The biggest things you need to book ASAP are venue, officiant, caterer (or if you’ve got a small group, reservations at a nice restaurant), dress (I would look for something off the rack)

Next importance, but more flexible/you can choose whether you really need them: DJ, florist if you want flowers, photographer if you want pro photos

Hi GypsyBride,

We literally planned our wedding in less than 2 months, thanks for our former venue canceling on us so close to our date.  It’s totally do-able.

Good Luck!
