    9 months is totally not too short of a time to plan a wedding.  However, people might have Labor Day plans already, so how about the weekend prior to Labor Day?

    Congrats on finding a venue!  Honestly, I don’t think 9 months is too short of a time to plan – but it really depends on you.  We had a date choice when we found our venue – either 5 months out or 14 months out and we opted for the 14 months –  mostly because we were paying for it and it gave us more time to spend.  While I learned to love my 14 months – I will say that I think 9 months is an ideal framework.  But, it really depends on you.  If you have a longer time, you’ll have more time to take breaks, do lots of research, etc.  Having the shorter time, makes you make decisions more quickly and less ‘lulls’ in planning.

    I’ll also add to say that you could plan in less time as well.  I had a friend do a 400+ wedding in 4 months and another do long-distance planning for 200 in 5 months.  Anything is possible!

    I’d go for September. 9 months is def not too short. We did ours in 5 (and I was away, as in unreachable, for 6 weeks of that time). I think a relatively short engagement has a lot of advantages–mainly that you don’t get overly obsessive about too many things, because you can’t. Congrats on the great venue!

    Depends on your financial situation & how much time/energy you have to put into planning. 9 months is definitely doable, unless you can’t manage to book other vendors or have time for any of the other details.
