- Wedding: October 2013
We were engaged 6 and a half months, and I started planning in earnest (as in, booking vendors) about two weeks after we were engaged. I had a strong idea of what I wanted pur wedding to look like even before he proposed, and that helped a lot.
In Nashville, there seemed to be less competition for good vendors, so planning was relatively stress free. In a bigger city, we might have had more problems booking things just 6 months in advance. We booked our major vendors (photographer, caterer, rentals, and officiant) about 6 months before the wedding, got dresses 5 months befpre the wedding, and then just worked on diy and decor until about a month before the wedding.
We held our wedding at my parents’ lake house, so we didn’t have to compete with other couples for our venue. 🙂
Good luck to you!
