It can definitely be done!  You just have to compromise on a lot of things and keep your options open.  Although I’m not a bride, my friend has planned her wedding in less than 4 months – and that includes all vendors/dress and even made her own invitations and favors!

WB is a great source so if you need any help- we’re all here!  Congrats !!!!

I definitely didn’t do it, but I know others who have done it on even less time! 

Good Luck, it is still going to be an amazing adventure!

I agree, it can definitely be done and you will have to probably compromise on a lot of things. But at the end of the day you are getting married to the man you love.

And I agree w/your parents. He is getting deployed and god forbid if anything were to happen to him as his fiance you get NOTHING.

The Fi’s brother & SIL when they just got engaged had planned on having a big wedding and all. A month into it he found out he was getting deployed to Turkey for two years. The SIL is also in the Air Force so they decided to have a shot gun wedding, basically a extremely small church ceremony and a dinner with closest family. But it needed to be done or they would have been seperated for two years.

You can do it with their help! Mrs. Pineapple planned a wedding in a week, so I am sure you can do a lovely one in 3 months.  Its all about making a decision right away and moving to the next thing – vs. spending a month looking for the "right" pair of shoes or perfect florist etc…..if your perspective is that you want to be husband and wife before he deploys, then that all of a sudden becomes a lot more important that all the little details.  I am sure it will be loevely!

It can be done.  A co-worker of mine planned her daughter’s in 3 WEEKS!  They made a lot of compromises and did a lot of things differently than normal (e-invites).  But it turned out to be a really beautiful wedding.  You can do it and like others have said, you have a whole bunch of girls on here that will support you.
