Tips on Planning the Wedding in 5 Months

The major part of the wedding planning articles state that the wedding planning should take at least a year. But in fact it is possible to plan the ultimate wedding in 5 months or even less. Simply try to perform quickly. However if you have dreamed about the fairy tale celebration with the horse carriage and chirping birds, you will have to bring down your plans a bit. Still, as long as you are well thought-out and organized, you can arrange the dream wedding in the 5-month period from the day you get engaged.

How to plan the wedding in 5 months

5 months
Decide on the priorities along with your fiancé 5 months prior to the wedding day. Talk about your vision of the celebration: the level of formality, the number of guests, the location, the type of music, the menu etc. Once you are certain about these issues, start searching for the wedding venue and gown. Figure whether the potential groomsmen and bridesmaids will be able to take part in your event.
4 months
Try to book the wedding venue 4 months before the wedding day comes. By that time you should have a final version of the guest list. Send the save-the-date cards or e-mails as soon as possible so your guests don’t plan anything for that date. At this stage you should start thinking about the ceremony: finding the potential officiant, writing vows, looking for the rituals you would like to incorporate, finding the perfect music.
3 months
This time is ideal for ordering the wedding invitations. Decide on the event caterer and choose the wedding menu. Go the bridesmaids’ dresses shopping or tell your bridesmaids the way you want them to dress. Don’t forget to confirm the officiant and book a photographer and a videographer.
2 months
2 months before the wedding day get in touch with the florist you like. Just make sure the flowers you prefer are available in the season when your wedding takes place. Come up with the wedding registry and choose the musicians you want to play both during the wedding ceremony and reception. Send out the wedding invitations.
1 month
Find out about the state and county’s marriage license requirements, follow all the procedures. Come up with a seating plan for the wedding dinner in case you are not planning the sit-down dinner. Purchase the gifts for the members of the bridal party. Pick and buy the wedding favors for your guests. Begin the honeymoon planning and don’t forget to ensure your passport and visa are current. Pick the rings and don’t forget to attend the final dress fitting.
1 week
Finally it is time for getting some relaxation before the big day comes: get some spa procedures, exercise and consume healthy food. If you are relaxed enough, you will be able to handle the last-minute issues with ease.
