  • poll: Is moving it up pointless?

    Yes. Just leave it.

    No. You can totally do it.

    I think if you really get on it it is totally doable! We would have had our wedding  sooner but we both like the fall. Just make sure you start contacting venues, photographers, officiants, caterers, whoever ASAP.

    I have the entire event planned down to the last detail and I’ve been engaged since the end of October.

    Also, my grandparents are in their 80s and I’m not worried about them not making it. Are you concerned because they are in ill health?

    Do it.  It sounds like you’re not incredibly picky about the venue so it shouldn’t be too much trouble.  I got engaged in November and our wedding is at the end of July!  it’s possible!

    You can definitely do it!!  We did it in just over 5 months and it was fantastic.  We are also really thankful because my DH’s parents health took a turn for the worse.

    Well, 1st, I definitely think you can do it. Our wedding is gonna be about 5 1/2 months after our engagement, so when it comes to planning you’re already ahead of the game if you haven’t booked anything that will lose you money when changed.

    I’m all for short engagements. I think long engagements are usually just chances to get nervous and spend too much on silly things you’ll regret/not remember later.

    On the other hand, if you were really excited about the May date and your theme I can see it being disappointing.

    My grandma is in her late 70’s but she doesn’t have any health problems and I didn’t even consider the date effecting her ability to be there. Do your g-parents have health issues or something that would make you think that 1 more year would make a radical difference?

    edit: just read your previous post about their health ๐Ÿ™‚

    @AmeliaBedelia: If there was any feasible way for me to get married this year, it would totally be happening. Long engagements kind of suck. If you can do it this year, do it! Can we see some of your venue options?

    You can absolutely do it, and that is a great reason. We had to move our wedding up to accomodate a move and getting in to grad school. We’d been engaged for a few months by that point, but we hadn’t started planning at all. In the end, we ended up with about 4 months of planning from setting the date to the wedding date. We did have to make compromises, and I didn’t get to have my original wedding vision (the time of year and weather were much different, and the outdoor reception I wanted was not feasible for some of our guests). I also had to make some decisions much more quickly than I otherwise would have, and I compromised on more than I would have if I’d had more time. In spite of all that, I had a great wedding- and the date move was absolutely worth it!

    Definitely start contacting vendors ASAP…September is prime wedding season in the southern half of the country! If you live in a big city, there should be no problem finding vendors either way, but if you’re set on particular ones or a particular budget, it’s best to snatch them up as quickly as possible.
