Planning a wedding, even in just three months, can be demanding. While some take years to prepare, a shorter timeline requires a focused approach.
Here’s how to successfully plan your wedding in just 3 months:
Secure Vital Vendors
Upon finalizing the date and venue, immediately book essential vendors like hairstylists, photographers, DJs, caterers, and florists. Due to time constraints, your first choices might be unavailable.
Seek recommendations from friends and family to discover talented yet affordable options. Don’t forget to find an officiant and secure your wedding certificate early.
Start with the Essentials
Set a date, establish a budget, and decide on a location. Consider your desired celebration style and explore various venue options.
While popular places might be booked, creative alternatives like restaurants or private backyards can work well. Flexibility with the day of the week can also secure a preferred venue.
While a custom gown might not be feasible, formalwear stores, vintage shops, or upscale consignment stores can yield stunning options. Colored dresses or enlisting a talented friend or family member to create your attire are viable alternatives. Groom attire can be purchased off the rack.
Invite Guests Promptly
Send out invitations as soon as possible to gather RSVPs in advance. Utilize paper or email invites, with an email RSVP option for convenience. Be prepared to follow up with some guests to confirm attendance, as vendor arrangements often require a final headcount well ahead of the event.
Efficient planning within a short timeframe requires prioritizing key tasks, allowing you to celebrate your special day with joy and elegance.
