So I just got engaged this week (yay!) Now we are challenged with picking a wedding date. We may be moving overseas in the fall, so we really want to get married before September. But due to various work/personal commitments, the later summer months don’t seem to work for us. We keep coming back to May 23rd. That is only 5 months away! Is that too soon? I called around today and there is a venue that we really like that is available. Can we pull this off, if we are really quick with decisions? Anyone else plan a super quick wedding?

I honestly want to get married this year, but have not set a date because the money situation is not so good right now.
I think, especially from seeing a lot of people on this board, that we all assume that a wedding will take at least a year to plan (although I know some do it in less). However, people can plan a wedding in 5 months, definitely. It really all depends are simple/extravagant your wedding will be and what your help looks like (doing it all by yourself vs. coordinators and such).
If my wedding will be this year, it will most def be something that will be planned within 6 months or so…so I’m with ya!

I think you can! Weddings can be planned in a week!
It will be a little bit stressful, and you’ll have to make some sacrifices that brides who got engaged 1.5 years won’t have to make (i.e. venue and photographer)
my sister is planning her wedding in three months for a march wedding, because her fiance’s brother is getting deployed. It’s not all perfect, but its actually going smoother that I would have thought!

I think you can totally do it! I got engaged in September, and I’m planning a June wedding. That’s only 9 months, and I haven’t had too much to do once I booked everything. All of the projects/details are going to come in the last 3 months. So I’d say go for it 🙂

If your venue is open, you can make quick decisions, your budget allows for it, you can find the dress, and everyone can attend, then go for it! Details can come together in 5 months no problem.

I know more than one person who got married in less than five months, and all of them had beautiful weddings. In a way, I think its nice because you don’t have all this time to overthink things.

you can totally do it! my BFF planned hers from out of state in less than 3 months for 120 guests. she had a full service planner, so that certainly helped, but you can do it!

Yeah I’d say you can totally do it! If you can, you might wanna hire someone (a planner) to help you out b/c they can totally keep you orgainzed and on track. Depends on how much time you have to devote to the planning at all that!

I think it can be done. You just have to have a vision and go with it fast! Good luck!

- Wedding: May 2010 - Carlouel Yacht Club
You will have to buckle down a little bit, but it is totally possible I think! My wedding is at the end of May as well, and I really am just now getting projects started now. The only issue you might run into might be regarding a dress…depending on what kind of dress you are looking for, it might not be enough time to have certain gowns made. But other than that, if your vendors are available, I think it is feasible!

Be decisive and you can do it!!! The meat of wedding planning happens in the last few months anyway! 🙂

I just started mine 3 wks ago and it’s set for May 24 DW which is kinda hard. You for sure need to get your dress NOW…since it takes mths to get some of them in. Than get the venue for the reception and wedding booked asap. I would than get the photographer and florist next. If you need a planner..( i would do a day one if possible ) that should be high up there after dress and venue. It not that bad, it mostly spending the time sorting thru all the people, Good luck !!

It’s very possible. One of my friends planned her wedding in 2 months and it turned out great!

Totally doable! One of my good friends planned her wedding in five weeks, while she was studying for the NY bar!! If she can do it, you can too!
