You could easily plan this in a month or two. Most time crunched part is invitations and finding an officiant. Go go go!

@worldtraveler:  I think there is plenty of time. I am getting married in August. Nearly everything is booked/purchased and I did it in 1 month. My main concern would be getting out invites or Save-The-Date Cards and being sure you book the venue ahead of time. Not sure if state parks are popular places in September, but if you wait to long, it could be booked. Also, photogs tend to book early, so you may want to look into that now…

@worldtraveler:  Depending how dedicated you are to planning, how many details you are hoping to incorporate, and your budet, a small wedding will be very easy to do. I think if you have down time right now plan plan plan. Andactully start putting details into place. If you are not a picky bride you can plan a 50 person wedding in a month. If you want to put in alot of DIY decor, I would start as soon as you can so you have time to make adjustments. Think of your top piorities as get them out of the way so you can rest assured they are complete.

My cousin actually planned her wedding in less than 6 weeks. They decided they wanted to get married because of her pregnancy and also concerning some immagration issues. At first she planned to just elope and than it turned into a whole wedding with 50+ guests, cake, bouquets, a wedding dress, catering, photographer etc.

It was a great wedding actually, so I think it will be very possible to plan your wedding at short notice. As long as you are a little flexible about what your vendors.
