I’ve always heard the average was a year, so that means plenty of people have done it in less time!

We felt that way too at first so I stopped planning allotgether for two weeks. It’s given me time to refocus and be inspired and for us to talk. I will only discuss wedding planning with my fi now BUT my family isn’t contributing either.

Deep breath!

Hey my wedding is the same date!! I’ve been having a blast planning, I’m so sorry you’re not! You still have time, but you need to book a venue ASAP. Just start with that, one thing at a time. Look on the boards for Chicago, look on The Knot, google “chicago wedding venues,” etc. In the meantime, get a guest list going so you have a ballpark figure of how many guests you’re going to have which will affect the price of the venue and basically everything. Once you get that done, start looking for a photographer, then an officiant and a florist, and go from there. There are good timelines on wedding wire or the Knot that can help you too. You’re fine, just start actually booking things rather than stressing out! It should be fun!!

My wedding is just a little over 8 months away (it was 6 months away, but we had to push the day back, for family reasons) and honestly, I did most of my planning with less than 10 months, and I still have a lot to do. What I’d focus on first is finding a venue, vendors can come a bit later. Even now, some vendors still haven’t booked my wedding day for things (a few months back when I had to change it up I was happy most were still free).

Don’t stress. Weddings are perfectly plannable in less than 10 months!

We had everything planned in a week and a half. I guess I’m really lucky.
