You know what they say, “When you know, you know.” And if you’re someone who can certainly relate when it comes to your beloved and you don’t want to waste any time before becoming his wife, then this article is just for you. Here are some top tips for planning your wedding in just six months.
Set a realistic budget
When you have a year or more to plan out your wedding, this means you have more time to save money. But if you want your wedding to transpire in six months or less, you definitely need to set a realistic budget. And as you’re putting it together, due to the time constraints, know that some things are probably going to cost a bit more if a rush order is required. However, do your best to not solely rely on credit cards to take care of the expenses. Credit cards are simply loans that come in the form of plastic and you don’t want to go into serious debt while planning or your special day.

Choose three wedding dates
Once you have your budget in place, it’s then time to choose a wedding date. We recommend you choose three different ones, because when you’re pressed for time sometimes venues and caterers are already booked and so you may need to go with another day. So, think of three dates that work for you so that you’re prepared to do some negotiating when you call them up.
Book a venue
Whether you’re planning a wedding that’s a 1 ½ years from now or three months from now, booking a venue is essential. That’s because after you know where you are getting marrying, you are free to build from there. Therefore, definitely make finding a venue (and putting down a deposit) should be on the top of your list.
Hire a wedding planner
Six months is going to go by pretty quickly, which is why you need a wedding planner in place to make sure all of the details are taken care of. In order to find a truly reputable planner, we recommend that you visit Examiner.com and put “tips on choosing a wedding planner”. It’s a good article on how to go about finding the right one.
While you’re in the process of planning a wedding in a short period of time, you need to be sure you’re flexible. This is because while you’ll probably be able to get most of the things you want, other things may be too expensive or simply not available. But if you’re willing to be open to alternatives, the planning process can still go really smoothly.
