So he just popped the question and you’ve decided – why wait?! Girl, we FEEL you.
We are all about planning and getting your life started with your new love. That’s why we are here to help with your short-term engagement timeline!
When you’re on a short schedule, it can feel like everything all at once – but don’t fret! We’ve got all the details and we are ready to spill them!
Nail down your budget
First and foremost – set that budget! This is the thing that will determine all other areas when planning your wedding.
The last thing you want to be is “venue broke,” on your wedding day. Make sure you discuss what’s most important to you as a couple and center your budget around those things.
A planner is a girl’s best friend! Whether you go traditional and get a wedding binder or just use Google, organization can only help you.
These tools are great for organizing details, to-do lists, and much MUCH more! Plus, they’re FREE! And who doesn’t like free?!
Book your most-important vendors first
Decide which vendors are most important to you (as well as those that are full-day wedding vendors) and book those first. If you have a photographer or florist that you’re DYING to have, make sure you inquire with them first thing.
When you’re working on a shorter timeframe, some vendors might not have your date available. Keep an open mind when planning on short notice.
If you find a specific vendor’s style that you like but they’re booked on your day, search around for other vendors with a similar style and inquire with those.
Ask for help
We cannot stress this one enough. Planning on a short-term engagement is A LOT, so please don’t attempt this on your own. Ask your fiancé, mother, mother-in-law, maid-of-honor, and even your planner to step in and take some of the heavy load off your shoulders.
They will be more than willing to help out and love being able to take part in planning such a special day.
