You do realized that your wedding is a little under 2 months I know this because that day is my birthday. I do not think that is enough time to plan a really good wedding unless you plan it just being you, your fiance, and an officant. I would recommend you get yourself to a store and get trying on dresses and find a local seamstress asap because you really don’t have a lot of time to waste.

Most people would be well into planning at this point but thats ok. You have time but you probably should start now. We planned our wedding in two months so it’s very doable. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions.

regarding the dress I think those are gorgeous. Unfortunately at this point your options will be a little limited. I was practically laughed out of bridal shops they were so appalled at me wanting a dress in two months. Go look at sample sales and David’s bridal, those are your best bets in your time frame. If you can’t find anything you like (I couldn’t) PM me, I had a great experience with a Chinese knock off site and would highly recommend them

Bored6:  i strongly disagree and think it’s kind of unnecessary to discourage her like that. We had a lovely 80 person wedding planned in two months. Just because the multi-billion dollar marketing monster that is the wedding industry tells you that you need 2 years to plan a wedding doesn’t mean it’s true.

Start planning at least a year in advance. Why? 1. For your peace of mind. 2. Because vendors and venues get booked well in advance of time, regardless of how large your personal wedding is. 3. Your guests will want information about the wedding, especially if they are coming in from out of town.

I like dress 1 the best. It’s classic and would even look great shortend if you wanted to alter it to better fit the relaxed feel of your event.   The other dresses look nice but too often they look pretty bad in real life pictures.

2monthweddingplanner:  Just because you planned a wedding in under 2 months doesn’t mean that everyone should plan a wedding in two months. Weddings take time to plan because there is a lot of research that should go into wedding planning. Normally all the great vendors are booked at least 6 months to a year in advanced especially if its a sat or Sunday wedding. If you plan a wedding in under two months you will prob end up with the not so good vendors.

Wedding dresses also take at least 6 months sometimes longer to come in. So I will say it again I do not recommend planning a wedding in two months unless you want a weekday wedding and second I also do not recommend cheap knockoff wedding dresses either. They are cheap but they prob end up costing you more in alterations. 

To the op ts a good thing your wedding is in 2016 and not 2015. Since you are a year and two months out I would recommend going out and trying dresses on. I would also suggest you and your fiance make a list of  all the things that are the most important to you for the wedding day.

Things like how many people you would like to invite? What kind of wedding do you want? Do you want a sit down dinner, a buffet style reception, cockail reception, etc? Do you want real flowers, a photographer, videographer, real live ceremony musician, etc?

My wedding is July 16, 2016 and we’ve booked the venue, I bought my dress, and my BMs bought their dresses. Fiance and I will be putting a deposit down in 2 weeks to our photographer, and we have an officiant. I have now been researching DOCs. I’ll look into a baker and florist around end of this year

Our wedding was small, 9 people total and I started looking and thinking about things as soon as we were engaged. We decided on a date fairly quickly, then I just read as much as I could. We were moving so I waited until that happened to get really serious. I did it in 9 months. Start looking for inspirations now if you’d like. Most importantly talk with your Fiance about what you both want the day to be. This takes some thinking about what is most important then you can go from there. There are lots of dress options out there so look online but get to a store and figure out if what you like will work on your body and in your budget. Once you know what you want your day to be about, it’ll make some of other decisions easier. You have plenty of time to get everything done. Figure out how many guests you will be inviting and start researching venues. If you are inviting a lot of guests, venues will be the biggest thing to work on now, good venues get booked quickly but don’t fear there is always an option. And we are always here to help. Good luck planning!
