Of course it can! I would suggest getting the venue first! Then you can start looking into caterers, photographers, DJs, cakes etc. Once I found our venue it was pretty smooth sailing. I’m still doing stuff but the venue was #1 to do!

Yes! No Prob….just got engaged at x-mas and my August wedding is basically planned (except details). Try picking 3 big things at a time to tackle, and start emailing different vendors for each category. I think venue, photographer, caterer is a good start! Don’t worry, you can do it!

Most definitely!! People have done it in way less. Do you have a checklist?

you will 100% get it done. We started late also. But ended up getting all the major things fairly quick once we got the show on the road. I felt like researching vendors on-line made life so much simpler instead of having to meet with a bunch in person. Once i narrowed it down to who I felt fit our personalities best we than set up appts. For our photog and florist we ended up meeting with only one person after narrowing them down online. So don’t worry. You will start to see how fast things can get done as you go. To me it’s these little details that are coming up now that are harder than getting the big things out of the way.

I sure hope it can! Our wedding is a week before yours. We only have a few things done so far as well.

Life always seems to get in the way of wedding planning. I keep having nightmares about how far behind I am, but in my heart of hearts I know everything will work out just fine. Good luck 🙂 You’ll be fine!

Yeah, I drug my feet and about planning and didn’t really start until about 7 months. Just try to be decisive, send contracts and checks in when you are supposed to, and it will go pretty swimingly. Try to forget the fun details like decorations until you have a reception and ceremony venue, it is easy to get bogged down in “planning” the look of the wedding.

I planned my wedding in six months from out of state.  I felt like I had everything done SUPER early (I had everything booked four months out).  There were a lot of things that I could have waited to book, because they weren’t important to me and because certain things don’t book up quickly.  The most important things to me were my photog and my venue.  Once those were booked, I was a lot less stressed about everything else.
