3 Tips For Planning A Wedding On The Fly


Perhaps you're newly engaged and don't want to wait to marry the love of your life, or maybe you had planned for a longer engagement, but work obligations or familial responsibilities have pushed up the date of your wedding. Planning a wedding with minimal time doesn't have to be a stressful experience. Instead, stick with these tips to successfully plan your wedding when your big day is right around the corner.

1. Opt for a Wedding Venue Package

As you plan your wedding, it's ideal if you can bundle many of the services that you'll need throughout the day. One option to accomplish this goal is to opt for a wedding venue package.

A wedding venue package typically includes multiple vendors or services in addition to providing a spot for your festivities. Packages vary significantly based on your event venue, and you may be able to customize the package to your needs. 

For example, your venue might be able to provide the furniture and decor for your event, the officiant for your ceremony, and catering for your reception. You might have the option to include your wedding cake in the package. Not only does a package assist with coordinating your day, but it means that you'll have fewer vendors to deal with.

2. Send Invitations Via Multiple Mediums

It can take time to design paper invitations, have them printed, and mail them to your recipients. In addition to your paper invitations, consider sending out some digital invites. Though a digital invite shouldn't take the place of a conventional invitation, it can be useful to inform your guests of the details regarding your big day in a timely manner. This gives them time to make plans so that they can attend your event. 

3. Keep the Wedding Party Small

Though there's nothing wrong with having a large wedding party, this means that it will take more time and effort to effectively coordinate everyone who has a role on your special day. It' much easier to get five people on the same page than ten people. You'll have fewer people to check in with to ensure they've made the necessary preparations for their role in your wedding.

Instead of having everyone in your wedding party wear the exact same dress or tuxedo, you might issue guidelines regarding their attire for the day. You might tell the ladies that they need to wear a wine red dress longer than the knees, but they're free to select the style they prefer. For your groomsmen, have them wear black formal wear, be it a suit or dress pants and a blazer.

When I first got engaged, I looked forward to planning the wedding, but as time went by, my enthusiasm for planning every detail of the big day dwindled. I knew that I wasn't going to be able to handle the entire planning process on my own. I talked with a wedding planner and selected some elements that I would take care of on my own and hired her to do the rest of the work for me. Knowing how much goes into a wedding really overwhelmed me. Visit my blog to find a few tips that can help you coordinate with a planner to make your wedding as perfect as mine was.
