Love the response! 

Youll be fine ๐Ÿ˜€ I’ve done most of our planning late January this year for our May wedding.

Ha ha ha, we did that, too! We went from 5/10/14 to 5/11/13 over Thanksgiving weekend… So 17 months to 5 months! It was pretty intense… But do-able!

Your Future Mother-In-Law sounds awesome! I think it’s totally do-able to plan your wedding in 5 months especially since you seem to know your setting and theme already. The only thing the deadline may drastically impact is if you need to get a dress ordered since it may take up to a few months then there are the alterations. However, if you’re flexible with vendors and ideas, you can plan a great wedding in 5 months. I would sit down and figure out your budget and what needs to be done ASAP and get the ball rolling on those things now. Then breakdown the rest of the time you have to figure out the rest.

When we got engaged I figured we’d have a longer engagement, but Fiance didn’t like the idea of that, then we had to make sure it was a month that his siblings wouldnt have midterms or finals, then our venue was booked up in April so all of a sudden we had less than 8 months and we’re having a 90 person catholic ceremony/full dinner reception wedding. Let me tell you its totally doable. When people ask how we did it he always says she hit the ground runnin!! So plan all the big things to get it out of the way so when it’s a month before all you have to do is relax ๐Ÿ™‚ good luck!!

@KaitKitten:  You can do it! We got engaged on December 9, 2012 and we are getting married on April 27, 2013. We didn’t start planning until after the New Year too. I remember sending his mother an email that said, “120 days to go.”

@KaitKitten:  We had a 14 month engagement and I STILL wish it was shorter!  It takes however long you have to plan a wedding.  I’m so glad you’re OK with it.  It will all come together!

@KaitKitten:  The photographer and the recpetion site were first

Then I bought my dress

Then we figured out the ceremony site and put down deposits on EVERYTHING.

Everything else just followed after! Once we had the HUGE stuff out of the way (ceremony officiant, reception site, dress and photog), everything else just feels like luxury! So we got really nice vases. While they would have been a “mandatory detail” if we had 17 months to plan, now we have less than 3 months and the pretty vases on Craigslist were the OBVIOUS choice because what else were we going to find in less than 3 months?

I find the shortened time frame VERY liberating, personally.
