    I’m a nut and I think you can pull it together for June. This is so exciting!

    If you aren’t going to be crazy at work wrapping up the school year then I think June makes the most sense. Those last three weeks will be intense.

    What do you have to do? You need entertainment, flowers, guestlist ( less time to make it means less time for people to add to it), invitations. You can totally pull this off.

    Is it crazy that I’m so excited about this???

    Do you get the February break? Excellent time for planning. Spring break = more planning

    There just seems to be so much going on in August that’s going to make it stressful.

    I vote june!

    I think you can pull it off between now and June.  I think there are too many pros not to push yourself a little.

    I’d make a list of what is REALLY important to you (of what’s left to do) and focus on those things.  All the other details don’t really matter, IMO…. 🙂 

    GO JUNE!

    I pulled together a June wedding starting the planning in March.  It was tough but we did it! Of course…it was the wrong man.  But the wedding date had nothing to do with that.

    If your parents have the money, can you ask for an extra 1k to hire a wedding planner to make it happen in June?  He or she can really help you put together a seemless wedding in a short amount of time.

    Easy choice!

    You have all of that already done and you’re worried about a 6 month time frame? You’re set. We did absolutley everything in 5 months and I felt like we could have done it a month sooner.

    Go for June, it’ll be worth it.

    My wedding is in March and the engagement was in September. It can be done! Definitely stressful, but I wouldn’t wanna wait if I were you.

    I’m getting married before you on May 27th.  I have:

    • Wedding dress bought
    • Bridesmaid dresses bought
    • Ceremony site
    • Reception site
    • Officiant we might still change
    • DIY invitations almost done
    • My shoes bought (today!)

    As of two weeks ago, we didn’t have a guest list finalized either, and we still don’t have a photographer or DJ!  It’s totally doable….you just might need to prioritize your DIY projects and not do exhaustive searches on things like DJs.  Word to the wise though: buy pre-made invitations, DIY was more time consuming than I (a crafty-person) expected.

    @ames12708:  I didn’t send out Save-The-Date Cards, but we told via word of mouth most of the friends we wanted to make sure would come.  We’re also planning on sending out invites early (2/14).  My dress was also ordered to come in 2/15 but came in a week or so ago.  Just bought the shoes so I could go get fitted.

    @ames12708:  you have so much already decided.  the only thing that usually takes time is the dress and that’s done.  bm dresses can be quick from david’s bridal.  book the large vendors now then you only have the small details to look after over the next few months.  planning really doesn’t take that much time if you know what you want, you’re focused and all of the vendors are available. 

    bride’s that have a lot of time to plan, just end up changing their minds on so many little details that it drives them crazy.  you won’t have that problem.  you have the luxury of making a final decision and sticking to it.

    It sounds like you basically have your wedding already picked out and you’ve done most of the heavy lifting. I think you can pull it off!
