Planning a Wedding (in 3 months or less)


Planning a Wedding (in 3 months or less) can be overwhelming. Whether you just got engaged and are in a hurry for your wedding day or have been engaged for a year or more and are way, way behind on planning this major event in your life, it’s possible to plan this important affair in three months or less. You may not have time to organize a black-tie wedding at the Grand America, but putting together a beautiful celebration for you, your family and your friends is entirely doable in 12 weeks or less.

Book the Venue

When you’re three months or less out, it’s true that many top spots will already be reserved. However, plenty of amazing spots should be available. You may even get a discount by booking so close to your wedding day. If possible, have your ceremony at the same place as the reception. This will save planning time and make things easier for your guests. Look at non-traditional wedding venues, places like restaurants, plant nurseries and museums.

Wedding Apparel

According to tradition, the wedding dress must be selected about six months before the day of the wedding. The bridesmaids’ dresses should be ordered soon afterward. For a bride who has just a few months until the big day, there are options. Large bridal stores have a wide range of dresses that are in stock and ready for your wedding day. Wearing something fancy, but nontraditional, like a prom dress is another option. Check with your intended bridesmaids to see if they might have dresses that are the same color. That way, you won’t have to order them.

The Invites

Be sure to mail out your wedding invitations six weeks before the day of your wedding. Keep in mind that printing takes time as does addressing invitations. Ask about the turnaround time from a few local printers. If you’re unable to find one who can do the job quickly enough, think about doing it yourself with a software program. Home printers deliver quality prints these days, so you may be just as happy with these results.

The Food

If you’ve reserved a restaurant or a hotel for your wedding ceremony and reception, then the food part will be easier since you’ll be holding the celebration at a place that already has a cooking staff. If you’re having your wedding at another type of venue like a park or a museum, then contact larger catering companies because they’re more likely to have openings. Some caterers aren’t equipped to provide wedding cakes. If the one you choose isn’t, then reach out to a local bakery. Most can whip up your wedding cake with just a week or two of notice.
