Hello! My H2B had originally set a date for September 2019 but we realise that we can have our dream venue (which was out of our budget) at a huge discount if we have it before the end of February 2018 which gives us 6 months to plan etc. Is this too little time? Has anybody else had a short term wedding?
We're planning ours in 6 months! If the venue includes food and you're not wanting a designer dress (which can takes months to arrive nevermind alterations) then it's actually not as hard as you would assume!
First time round I managed to plan everything on a budget and in 13 weeks so 6 months is more than enough time if you get to have the venue you really want :) Good luck!
My dad it is a couple of years ago in 6 months and it was a lovely day. Good luck x
We planned a big wedding in just under six months because of the same reason. It was definitely doable! X
No way. It's fun arranging last minute. We did ours from point of booking to date of wedding only 16 weeks. It's great!
You can do it!!! Go for your dream :) x
I've pretty much sorted my wedding in two months. It's not for another 11 months but I have 4 months of revision to do so wanted it out of the way. Anything is possible x x
My ex husband and I organised our whole wedding in less than 2 months x
6 months is plenty of time. The only thing you will struggle with is a dress as they can take upto 8 months to arrive (not including alterations) ring round different stores and see what their waiting time is, or try somewhere like wed2b where you take your dress home the same day xx
It can be done, we did ours in 5montgs, just get all essential bits booked/bought straight away
We've done ours in 9 months and to be honest most of it was don't within 2 months x
We did ours in 11 weeks ! And our day is tomorrow !
Go for it!! It's totally possible. Head down and get organising. Enjoy the planning as well. Xx
Ours is in 5 weeks and we booked it about 9 weeks ago! Totally possible x
We booked ours 6/7 months before our date and it is plenty time to arrange everything.
We announced that we were getting married in March last month and so far I've booked the ceremony, reception and DJ. Just little things left to do now oh and obviously find my dress it's very do-able best of luck x
I got engaged at new year and married at the end of July. I brought off the rack for all outfits but I knew what I wanted so it was pretty straight forward to plan (though we did move house 4 weeks beforehand!!!!!)
We decided in may to get married in September. .and I got everything booked within about a week Inc caterer.. photographer. .I got my dress last month and all my bridesmaids bought there own dresses thankfully.. my invites have been sent out.. if I can do it anyone can..but I do have to admit my parents especially my mum has helped me loads x
Abie Brown did hers in 6 months 🙂 x
I organised my wedding in 2.5 weeks ... so yes! X
my sis in law did it in 8 weeks and it was stunning! it can be done! i however have been planning for 2 years and still not got stuff sorted me and my partner are too laid back
Most definitely. My husband and I bought our wedding forward and managed to organise everything with 8 weeks!
Took my husband 3 weeks to do everything for our wedding
I did everything in 5 months don't worry get a good group of people around you and you will be fine
8 weeks I booked and planned mine in
We found out my Nan had terminal cancer and not long left and I wanted her to be there
It's more than possible just have to knuckle down with some help off family and friends xx
I started planning mine 3 months before for the same reason! It was easy to do and I didn't have time to mess around and doubt each decision. Had the best day ever and wouldn't change it!
It is possible, anything is possible if you put your mind to it. We booked our wedding with 18 months to plan then found out we were expecting so decided to have the baby before any planning, soon after baby arrived Christmas did so said in the new year we would plan, it wasn't until end of Feb we knuckled down and we got marriaged 1st August. Good luck !
Me and my mum planned my mums vow renewal but was a full wedding in 6 months it may have been less and on a budget of 3,000 she was beautiful and the whole wedding was gorgeous it can be done and you don't need to spend a fortune good luck Hunni hope your dream venue makes it perfect xx
We did ours in 6 months. Budget of £3000. Was amazing not having to wait too long. We are having a nice small wedding too. Less than 3 weeks to go now
I did it in 3 months and it was perfect and not strict on budget - anything is possible if u want it x
I got engaged end of march and am getting married in December plenty of planning time and less waiting for it to come round x
If I could afford to get married in 6 months I absolutely would be doing! I totally reckon you can do it x
9 months was ours...easy x
Perfectly doable , go for it!
My cousin got a last minute deal at a beautiful venue at a fraction of the price. From day of booking to actual wedding date she had three months to do absolutely everything and it was the most wonderful wedding ever. Xx
I booked my wedding in july got married October was so easy and less stress than worrying about it for a year or 2
You can do it! I've planned my entire wedding, got dresses etc in less than 4 months... now I have to wait 9 months for the big day lol xxx
Yes I met my ex husband got engaged after 2 months and married 4 months after lol but we were together 15 years b4 we split up
Me and my h2b only decided end of last month that we was going to get married middle of April, we have got just over 6 months and I have planned so much already, in the first month, it is I'll coming together really nicely. I went online for a checklist so I can see what I need to do and tick things off as I go along. Im not really doing it in any order but online it gives you a list and tells you when you should be doing things by, but I'm doing a lot of things before I need to! I'm really enjoying it all mainly because I know I haven't got a long time to go till the wedding you'll be fine, if it's your dream venue for a good price it's so worth it, we have got ours for half price because of the date we are having and it just makes it even better good luck! xxx
Yes we picked the date and said "I do" within 10 weeks crazy but worth it
My wedding is in just under 5 weeks and we booked and planned it 3 weeks ago, it's totally do-able. Good luck x
I'm considering this! This discounts you get are massive x
you can do it. you may need to get a little bridezilla about it but if you're mega organised and you make lists it can be done. good luck!! xx
Loads of time in my opinion.
I got engaged in October (was 4 months pregnant at the time). We'd booked our venue by Christmas and get married in 6 weeks. Easily doable! Xx
My first wedding (church wedding) i planned in 5weeks and 4 days oh and i was 5 months pregnant at time so 6 months is a breeze enjoy your day xxxx
As long as you buy an off the rack dress as will be difficult to get alterations done 6 months is plenty of time get things booked as soon as possible and you will even have time to relax the month before can be more chaotic but best of luck sure it will be fab
We got engaged in October 2016 and I got married on 3 June 2017 we booked the venue at the beginning of November so gave ourselves 7 months to plan our day was magical and perfect and we had everything we wanted go for it it is amazing how much you can plan in 6 months we had completed everything 3 weeks prior to the wedding xx
I planned ours in 6 months and it was a magical day. Everyone who attended though we spent a fortune and couldn't believe how beautiful it was. I say go for it... obviously it helps if you are an organised person. Good luck xx
I did my whole wedding in 5 months, I booked in the July for a November wedding and that was without a package I had to do it all myself, it's more than doable, in fact I spent the last 2 months with nothing to do
You can plan in that amount of time x
Yes absolutely! I'm not getting married until September 2018 and have only been engaged for 2 months but already planned pretty much everything!! I now have nothing to do for a whole year!! I wish I was getting married sooner!! Good luck with it all! Xx
We essentially did that because we'd had to change plans a few times and thought "let's just do this"
My only advice is to not be too fussy
You can do it. A lot of people do and at a discount price it's worth it.
You can definitely do it. Congrats and good luck xx
DO it! Mine is in March,but when I booked it I had everything basically planned after 3 or 4 months... now I just want to be married now!! 6 months is doable- just might have to look somewhere like Asos or Boohoo for a dress (they now do cheap ones but come as standard sizes, rather than bridal shops who order in and have to fit) x
We booked our wedding last September and got married in January. Best thing ever no waiting round and it was perfect! X
Me and my husband had 8 mths to plan everything for our wedding on the 16th June this year, we had a limited budget but the day was everything we wished for and more x
If it's your dream venue then you'll do it
We got engaged in September '14 and married in June '15 (and we changed the date and venue in the middle of this!), so you've got plenty of time :) x
A friend of mine did everything in less than three weeks and married the day after Boxing Day a few years ago - so it can be done.... good luck xx
It's completely possible as long as you have the money to pay for everything you need/want within the 6 months. Just make sure you delegate things out to other people to do and organise so that you don't take too much on all by yourself x
I moved my wedding forwards due to ill health of some family members who we wanted there and we only had 18 weeks to plan. It went absolutely perfectly!
Its definitely doable, phone round and just check your other suppliers availability x
We had 8 months to plan our wedding which was 6 wks ago easily done x

Update: Dresses bought (one short one and a long skirt /train that goes over it for the day) from Wed2be, wedding suit bought, cake ordered, venue paid for, rings chosen. All done on my own, as I wanted. H2B came with me for my dress shopping. Exciting!! X
