How to Plan a Wedding in a Short Period of Time (Part 2)

  1. Find a wedding dress.

Planning a wedding in a short period of time means that perhaps you will not have much time for multiple fittings and custom orders, however, that doesn’t mean you don’t have any good options. You can even take home a designer gown from bridal salons with you the same day as your purchase. Or you can check out any popular ready-to-wear stores that offer wedding-worthy white dresses. 

  1. Decide on a suit.

Like the wedding dress, you won’t have much time to go custom, however, there is the option to rent a tux. If you want to purchase a classic suit, try Brooks Brothers or any number of stores such as Zara or Top Man for trendy styles. Or you can try searching for a tuxedo online for your wedding.

  1. Tell your bridal party what to wear.

We suggest you to choose a wedding style and color and then asking your bridal party to find the closest match. For example, have your best friends wear a knee-length dress in navy, or a flowy chiffon dress in pink. Or just ask them to wear their favorite from their closet. The guys can wear tuxes, or wear their own suits with matching ties to coordinate the look.

  1. Create an outline of all the other vendors you need to hire.

Perhaps this is the toughest task when preparing your wedding, especially in such a short period of time. At least, you are going to want to find a photographer, videographer, band, florist, or cake baker. You can search for professional vendors in your area on The Knot Marketplace. Or if you have a favorite photographer, ask them to recommend all the other vendors. Another option is to check out GigMasters in order to find and compare prices for entertainment, rentals, and other vendors.
