We know there are plenty of people out there trying to plan a quick wedding. Despite the traditional 12+ month long engagements, for a lot of couples that’s not right answer. There are many reasons why you don’t want to wait but it can often be difficult to plan a traditional wedding in such a short window. However, we’ve got lots of tips for you if you find yourself planning a wedding in less than 6 months! 


Start dress shopping now. Lots of wedding dresses can need up to 8 months to be ready after ordering them so make sure this is the first part of your process. Most likely if you have a quick turnaround you won’t be able to have a custom gown made but there are plenty of dresses that are available off the rack and can be tailored within your time limits.

Find a venue. Plenty of places book up a year in advance but you’d be surprised how many weekends are still available within close proximity to the date. Keep your options open and look at as many places as you can. You may have to flexible with location or date (maybe a Friday or Sunday will work better) but there shouldn’t definitely be a venue you love that is still available. 

Forget tradition! Couples these days are throwing tradition to the wind and opting for a less traditional wedding. Maybe that means getting married in an exotic location or getting married at the courthouse. There are lots of options available to make it less formal and traditional if that’s what you want. 

Destination wedding. We love a destination wedding as it gives everyone an entire weekend to celebrate the couple. Might be a bit hard to pull off in a quick turnaround but might be the right choice for you. 

DIY. There are so many things you can DIY “do it yourself” when it comes to the wedding which is perfect if you have a short window to prepare. From the flowers to the name cards and everything in between. Start researching so you know what vibe you are going for and can start putting your plan together to “do it yourself.”
