It’s totally do-able.  I know tons of brides who had 3 or 4 month engagements.  

Is it about the wedding or the marriage?  Sure, you might not have tons and tons of time to plan, but if your motivations are to be married, who cares about perfection?

Without a doubt.  You might miss out on some vendors you’d prefer but if that’s what you want…!

Totally doable! I had just barely more than 8 months  – proposal early november, married the first week of the following July.  You’ll be fine.  We figured out venue pretty early (in December), photographer after that, then caterer (signed the papers in February), DJ (late March), did the invites in April, mailed them early May, and then just had little stuff (programs and such) left.  Worked really well.  PM me if you have any questions or anything.

@adynan13:  Totally doable! I got engaged and married in 8 months and it was a wedding that had 1100 guests. You can definitely pull it off and, like someone said, we are here to help as best as we can! Good luck!

 

@mak418:  How funny! We got engaged early November (Nov 6) and married first week in July, too!(July 2)

Absolutely doable. My Boyfriend or Best Friend was engaged for 6 months and I was for 8. She had a huge $20,000 bash and I had a small formal wedding. We both had beautiful days that we wouldn’t have traded for anything… It was actually a lot less stress for us and we are both married to our hubbies without waiting forever! My hubby originally wanted to wait until the spring to marry, but as the date got closer he actually asked if we could move it up!

You can 100% do this! I was engaged for 10 months, and after all the “big stuff” was booked, we found we had a lot of down time in the planning, and wished a few times that we had done it sooner!

@PinkL:  Wow! 1100 guests! amazing! (We had 55 including the two of us… probably somewhat easier!)  You’ll pulled it off even quicker than I (proposal the 4th, married july 9. I suppose that’s technically the second week, isn’t it… :P)

@mak418:  55 is totally more my thing. Hubby has a massive family, evidently, haha.

Yes, you can definitely do it! We’re doing 9 months as well. We had to make a few compromises on the day, and one vendor, but that was about it! Definitely get your dress soon though, best of luck!

I think so.  I was engaged 9 months to the day (Engaged Oct 9, Wedding July 9), and planned our wedding perfectly fine. Even had plenty of lulls in planning where I didn’t really have anything that needed to be done. However, the money we planned to spend was already saved up, so that part wasn’t an issue.

You just have to be organized, and maybe not super picky about having the most in demand venue/vendors in town.

We got married exactly 8 months after getting engaged (we didn’t purposefully choose a date exactly 8 months out… just worked that way). It was totally doable. The big things to do ASAP are start seriously dress shopping, choose a venue, and book a photographer. You have lots of time for everything else.
