Tips For Planning And Hosting A Wedding Within A Year

Many couples prefer to put ample time between their engagement and wedding because, simply put, the process of planning a wedding can be challenging. You will have to make a number of important decisions, set and maintain a budget, and find experts who are available to support your celebration on your selected date. With that said, many couples find that a successful wedding can be planned and enjoyed in less than a year. You can make planning easier by looking for non-traditional wedding dates, which can open up more availability from venues and vendors alike. By doing so, and by looking for different opportunities to save a little time and money, you can be sure to host a wedding you love in less time than you might have thought possible.

Look Into A Non-Traditional Date For Your Wedding Event

Choosing a wedding date outside of the spring and summer seasons, and/or picking a day other than Saturday for your event, can deliver several advantages. Popular wedding vendors often have their schedules filled many months in advance, but off-season dates and non-Saturday obligations can be harder to secure. Because of this, talented people can be available on less notice, and they may even offer up discounts for their services. In addition to having less demand, fall and winter wedding dates can be ideal for couples who want to stay away from conventional decorative choices. You can find different flowers in season, and use seasonally appropriate colors that are not often used for a wedding.

Set Your Budget And Find Your Dress As Soon As Possible

If you plan to host a wedding on relatively short notice, it is important that you move quickly to start organizing your event. While there are many tasks that you may want to delve into, it can be particularly important to set your budget and find your wedding gown as soon as possible. The gown you choose will likely need more than one alteration, so you should give yourself time for these services. By setting a budget at the beginning of the process, you can avoid a situation where you spend too freely for services early on, then find it hard to stay within the budget you eventually set for yourselves.
