If you’ve found yourself in a situation where you have to plan your wedding quickly, perhaps in a matter of months or even weeks, it’s easy to start stressing and wondering whether you’re ever going to get everything ready in time. However, with the right attitude and a little bit of help, it’s possible to achieve more than you ever thought you would.
Don’t be too ambitious
It’s understandable that you want your wedding day to be perfect, but if you need to plan it within a very short time frame, you need to appreciate that this might not be possible. You may have to choose a venue that was second or third on your list, since your top choice may be booked up already.
Get professional help
Wedding planners and other event specialists have planned weddings and occasions in very short amounts of time before, so your wedding will be no different. You can get marriage celebrants Sydney to help you with the planning process, and by doing this you’ll be able to have the wedding you really want.
Get non-professional help!
As well as paying for help from the experts, you can also ask your family and friends to give up some time. Your bridesmaids should be quite happy to come shopping with you or help you to find the perfect pair of shoes or head piece, and other people might be willing to search for local catering companies or help you to find flowers.
Be prepared to settle for second best
If you’re only giving yourself a few weeks to plan a wedding, you can’t expect to have the luxury of everything that you’ve always wanted. It depends whether you want to (or can) wait and have a later wedding, or whether it’s more important to you that you get married sooner rather than later. This may mean that you can’t get the venue of your dreams, or that you don’t have enough time to shop around for the wedding dress of your dreams, so make sure you’re happy with this arrangement before you set the final date.
Decide what is important
The first thing you should do is set the date and then set out invitations to everybody letting them know. Once this has been done, you can find a venue and arrange everything else later. You might want to tie in choosing the date with choosing a venue, since it could become a problem if you’ve invited everybody to the wedding and then you can’t find a venue for your chosen date.
Decide what you don’t want
If you’re getting married fairly soon, you won’t have much time to save up for the wedding either. Perhaps you don’t want a lot of things, which means it won’t be too much of an issue. You should decide whether you want an engagement party or any other events, or whether you’re going to keep the money for the big day itself.
