3 months, but we only pulled it off because I have an awesome, eager Mother-In-Law who is a retired event planner, and who had lots of connections (the caterer, for example). We also had a very small wedding (with a small budget) which helped tremendously. 

I think we rented tuxes for the guys 6 or so weeks out, which is probably way too late in the usual scheme of things, but Darling Husband knew what he wanted, and we did it through MW, so our spread across the region Groomsmen could visit their local store for a fitting. 

I’d think that the caterer, Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses and cake need to be tackled first, followed by invitations and tuxes, then makeup.

Well, I have been planning since July but I’d say I have had the mojority of the planning done since September. I really feel like I must be forgetting something because I thought I’d be super busy with it! I mean, I still have invitations to make and send, flowers to order and a few other small tasks closer to the date, but otherwise I think I’m doing pretty good. I’m not doing much DIY though. I’m going to be living on the west coast and getting married on the east coast so I decided not to do a lot of DIY.

I’ve been planning since August and had most everything done by October, but that could be because I’m not working right now. I still have small decisions to make and am now focusing on all the minor details.

A month and a half. Only because we sprang it on our families. 🙂 Has worked out wonderfully though!

We planned the whole thing in 5 months, and we had a small budget, so we had to shop around. It’s totally doable!
