When you watch TV people can do eleaborate ceromonies in a month so what’s the fastest you’ve ever heard of/ seen? Not including eloping (obviously)
For me it was about a week. My aunt and uncle got engaged, she bought a dress and he reserved some time at a church and then there was a reception at a bingo hall where people brought food and sat in the usual seats.
Anybody else got anything like that?

fastest i know of was a friend who got engaged and then had their wedding 4 months later, destination wedding, so i’m sure that made it a heck of a lot easier! they were lucky that most of us ( about 40 of us!) had the money to spend to get there in that short amount of time!

My sister got married in a month from her engagement. Very stressful and do not recommend it but her circumstances called for it since her husband was able to come home from over seas for 2 weeks.

@Pear85: My ceremony took a little over a week (mostly because in NJ there’s a 72 hour waiting period for the paperwork to go through) and the reception was about 3 months. I don’t know anyone who did it in a shorter time than that.

My cousin found out she was pregnant; her now-husband proposed and they had a very nice wedding 5 or 6 weeks later.

I met a woman once who had her second marriage the same day she got engaged. She was at her families estate for Christmas week, one family member in attendance who was an officiant. On Christmas Day, her SO proposed. They figured “why wait?!”… The women in her family whisked her away, got all done up and they got married then and there. They obviously had to go to the courthouse after the holiday. Not something I would everrrrrr do, but to each their own!

Mine. We planned it in less than a month!

@Pear85: I was in a wedding that was planned in 6 months. It was a full on traditional ballroom wedding and turned out pretty nice, although it did lack a lot of the forethought and details that I’ve noticed at other weddings. Of course that may have more to do with the bride’s personality than the length of the engagement.

A wedding planner in my state did a wedding on the beach where the groom proposed and then, two hours later, the wedding was held. All as a surprise to the bride.
Here is the photographer’s blog.

I know someone else who got married in 2 weeks, but they are still planning to do their renew their vows and have a reception a year after getting engaged, so to me that doesn’t really count since they don’t even really consider themselves to be married yet.
I know another person who eloped 1 month after getting engaged. However, she had been planning the whole year prior to getting the ring. She had booked a venue, got her dress, all before getting the ring. So I don’t really consider that planning to have only been for one month

Less than a month. And then they had a baby a few months later (They got pregnant after they were married, but the baby was premature). And then came all the facebook posts not-so-subtly veiling him treating her poorly. I think they’re finally separating for good now, a almost 2 and 1/2 years after their engagement. 🙁 Everyone thought she was pregnant when they got engaged and married, cause their engagement pics focused on her stomach a lot.

- Wedding: October 2011 - Bed & Breakfast
2.5 months. They decided at the end of February and were married in mid-May. It was a full-blown wedding with a 60 person guest list.
