Are there any March 2015 brides, or any brides who’ve planned a wedding in less than eight months. I am honestly getting a little nervous that I haven’t enough time to plan. If it were all being done here, I would probably feel ok, but i’m in Alabama and getting married in Delaware. I should say that my wedding is not small, maybe mid sized, 150 people, give or take a few. Any suggestions? Success stories. Please share! Thanks all!

I was engaged thi February and am getting married this August! If you have your heart set on one particular venue or photographer, it may not be enough time, but if you’re flexible, it’s more than plenty. I feel like 6 months was more than enough for me.

I just got engaged in June and we already have a date set for end of March 2015. I am in the event planning business so I can work pretty past. I got my venue and important vendors booked in the first 2 weeks. Just make a list of To- Do’s and stay organized and you’ll be fine 🙂

Definitely enough time – my FSIL got married in a week, dress and all. The turnout wasn’t quite as big because it was so quick but it turned out great.

Absolutely enough time as long as all of the major vendors you are set on are available!

Yes.. just get your venue and dress done ASAP! The dresses take a while to come in and venues book up… everything else you should be fine… march isnt a super busy wedding month
It will be super easy is you choose one of those all inclusive places… my sister got married on long island NY and almost everything was included… ceremony, reception, open bar, cocktail hour, center pieces, linens, limo…even the cake! all for 68 bucks a person!

I think that’s plenty of time! Get organized, make yourself a thorough to-do list that’s prioritized by things that are likely to book up, and delegate as much as possible! If you’re getting married in Delaware, I assume you know some people there, so you could enlist their help if they’d be open to it. Plus so many things can be done online these days! Also I’m not sure what your budget is like, but between time constraints and the wedding being in another state, I would skip the DIY stuff. I’m sure it’ll turn out great!

Totally doable! I was engaged in July and married in March, like you plan to be. I had all but one vendor booked and my dress picked out within the first month. The rest of the time was just handling the smaller details.

We got engaged in November 2013 during a trip, and I started planning at the end of December 2013. We just got married last weekend, so a total of a little over 7 months? It was stressful, but completely doable.

FashionistaDiva: You have more than enough time. The question is more are the vendors you want still available 🙂 Happy planning!

You’ll be fine! I’m in a similar situation, except I had just over 9 to plan, but roughly same amount of people, and planning in another city where the wedding is.
You can do it!

FashionistaDiva: You can totally do it. I just got engaged in June and am getting married in December. 6 months of engagment. We were going to get married in September with a 3.5 month engagement, but then we had something out of our control happen, so we extended our engagement a bit. We are expecting approximately 120 people.

Thank you everyone! You have all really encouraged me this evening! It was all starting to seem so overwhelming! I think that y’all are right, once my dress is purchased and my venue licked down, everything else will be no big deal!

Church (if you want it), dress and venue. Once you have those everything else will be easy! Totally doable. 🙂
