I receive a lot of questions about how much time is required to plan a wedding. Really, you don’t need much time at all. So if you were recently engaged and would like to get married this year, don’t worry you have time. As long as you don’t have your heart set on a specific date and venue you should be okay. You need to first start with priorities, if you have always known you will be married in the Basilica and it’s only available on June 2 at 3 p.m. you may need to be a little bit flexible with the rest of your planning. If you don’t have your heart set on anything you shouldn’t have a problem at all.
1. Set your priorities and budget, and vision
2. Select a Ceremony and Reception Venue + Date
3. Start booking all your vendors (the ones that can only book one wedding a weekend are where you want to start i.e. photographers/planners) and order you dress – it takes up to six months to order!
Keep in mind the busy months for wedding are June, July, August, and September, if you have a wedding in one of the less popular months you will be able to have the venues and vendors you want!
