In an ideal world, we would have plenty of time to plan our wedding to get it just the way we want it to be. However, for many people, planning ahead isn’t always an option. They may find themselves short on time, and as such try to put together a wedding at the last minute. The great news is that planning a last-minute wedding isn’t impossible.
It’s all about knowing what to prioritize and when. By getting the right things in place in the right order, you won’t just have a fabulous wedding, but it might even be better than it would have been even with plenty of time to spare! Here are some of the best tips for planning a last-minute wedding of your very own.
It’s that you start getting organized with the basic details like dates and themes. Perhaps it will be a classic theme or maybe even based on a certain era. Whatever type of wedding you choose to have, make sure that it’s organized and laid out— from choosing your flowers, to deciding on the dress code. Get a list together of everything it will take to make your vision come to life, and ask yourself whether it would be realistic in the amount of time you have. If it is, then keep on going and don’t look back.
Choose the Perfect Venue
A venue is an incredibly important part of the planning process. It’s safe to say that without the venue, you won’t be able to have the wedding at all. If other things aren’t quite in place, like your dress, or even ring, it’s still technically possible to get married. However, you need a location where you can host your guests, and above all officially tie the knot. Find the perfect place which fits your budget but is also realistic for the number of guests you have.
Remember— choosing too large of a venue for your guest count could leave you feeling too spaced out, whereas choosing a venue that’s too small could leave you feeling cramped. So in addition to price and location don’t forget to consider size! location.
Alert Your Guests ASAP
It’s important that you invite all of your guests as soon as possible. People tend to plan things far out in advance, especially if they have families of their own. So, it’s important that you get out a “save the date” as soon as possible or better, the invitation itself.
A general rule of thumb is to send out the invites as soon as your venue is confirmed. From that point on, everything else is little details.
Even though you may find yourself stressing about getting everything done within the right amount of time, don’t forget that the point of a wedding is to celebrate your love. Don’t let stress and planning overshadow the most important aspect which is your forever commitment to each other!
