How to Plan Your Wedding in 30 Days
On an average, couples take about 14 months to plan their wedding. It is however possible to plan yours on a much shorter timeline. The reason for your shorter timeline could be anything ranging from a military deployment to a serious work schedule.
We love to plan awesome weddings here at Dazzle (Events) by Andrea. So, we know it’s possible to plan your wedding with a shorter timeline. The first thing to decide on is if you’ll be having an elopement wedding or a regular wedding. This will determine the kind of steps that you take during your 30-day planning time. Here are some tips you should keep in mind if you’re in such a situation.
If You’re Having an Elopement Wedding
If a secret, private ceremony is what you and your partner want, then go ahead. Elopement weddings take place quite suddenly with barely any guests. If you’re having this kind of a wedding, you have to be fine with foregoing lots of things.
Some of them are wedding traditions like a bridal shower and having a wedding party. If you’re fine with missing out on those then you’re good to go. First, create your budget. Then read up on the marriage laws of your state so you can know what applies to yours. Get your license ready, set a date and have your wedding. You will most likely have to settle for a weekday wedding. It comes advantages like lower costs and vendor availability however.
If You’re Not Eloping
If an elopement is not your thing, then a small wedding should work. You won’t have time to send out formal save-the-dates or invites so try to keep it personal. Find an all-inclusive venue as they’ll give you the best value for your money. You also won’t have to worry about transportation for guests between the ceremony and reception.
Next is to hire the vendors for your wedding. Working with professionals who are experienced is what will really pay here. They’ll have the knowledge needed to handle the short time frame. Then handle your wedding fashion. Off the rack attires are what will be best. You can get your rings from an online company or a local jeweler. Then go ahead and have your wedding with those most important to you.
