When it comes to planning a quick wedding, a lot needs to be done in a short period. However, with proper organization and task prioritization, you can ensure your dream wedding goes off without a hitch!
Let’s get started!
Determine Your Budget
The first step in planning a wedding is to determine your budget. This will help you set realistic expectations for what kind of vendors and services you can afford. It’s also important to remember that even though you have a limited timeframe, you can still focus on quality to get things done fast. With careful planning and management, your budget can still accommodate the wedding of your dreams.
Pick Your Venue & Date
After determining your budget, it’s time to pick your venue for the ceremony and reception. Depending on where you live, various options may be available, from outdoor parks to traditional banquet halls.
Factors to Consider:
- Space: get a rough idea beforehand of the number of guests you would invite to see if that venue can accommodate them all.
- Date Availability: Ask the venue which dates they have available. This will narrow down venues and give you a few date options.
Once you have your date and venue chosen, connect with photographers. If you also decide to have a videographer, consider a photographer that includes that in their package. See if your wedding date works for them, and if you need to look for other vendors, unfortunately, you will need to look for different vendors.
Vendors to Book:
- DJ or Live Music
Get the Word Out
Now that you have the basics set, remember to tell everyone your wedding date! Give out-of-state guests plenty of time to plan for travel and accommodations by sending them an e-vite before the paper invitations arrive.
Make It Legal
REMEMBER YOUR MARRIAGE LICENSE! With quick wedding planning, give yourself time to acquire legal documents. “There’s typically a few-day waiting period from filing to getting your license. You should plan to file at least one week before your wedding to make sure everything works out” (Brides).
Enjoy the Process
With all the planning that goes into a wedding, don’t forget to enjoy this exciting time in your life! Involve friends and family, take breaks when needed, and above all else, remember why you’re doing this. With careful planning and organization, your dream wedding will come true in no time.
