So, I belong to the church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints… which means my wedding will probably be planned in 9-10 weeks from the time I get engaged (which will be soon-ish, within the next month). The venue for the actual wedding is free because it’s an LDS temple, but I have no idea what to do for a reception, doing engagements, hiring a photographer, or anything like that… Any help with planning a wedding quickly??!!

you cn do it, if you know the engagement is coming, start looking up things now so you know what you like

@W292737: Thanks dear! I have been. I feel like the more I look at stuff the more stressed it makes me. I have a bunch of hoops to jump through…
1. LDS weddings are very modest and usually cost under 10,000 so it’s all about insane budgeting.
2. I have 3 plus size bridesmaids and I can’t find bridesmaid dresses that are to the knee with sleeves that come in sizes 4-24. :/
3. The photographers I want or have spoken to are already booked up for summer. AHHH! As a photographer, I’m picky about my own and choices are limited in Wyoming/Idaho.
Has anyone planned their wedding in a few months or weeks?

@katie90: Yeah if you definitely know it is coming i would start looking around because it happens so fast!!!

@katie90: For dresses, I would check David’s Bridal. They have a large selection, especially for long dresses and sizes.

I know that I’m a little biased here, but HIRE A WEDDING PLANNER. It’s their job to get done all the things you just don’t have the time to do! They can make phone calls, find out about availability, confirm budget friendliness, etc. Plus, they probably have a whole list of vendors you’ve never even heard of. Wedding planners are specialists, and they’re available to make your planning go easier, faster, and better.
WeddingWire is a good place to look, but if you are on a tight budget you could take a risk and look on Craigslist. The folks there won’t have as much experience, but you could still get a great bargain on an up-and-comer.
