A Simple Guide to Planning Your Dream Wedding on a Tight Deadline

A gorgeous, one-of-a-kind dress? Check. Tables stacked with mouthwatering dishes? Check. Lush floral arrangements and festive balloons? Check. A band that will bring down the house? Check. These are just a fraction of items on the to-do list everyone faces when they try to organize a wedding. Of course, your wedding is a day you want to remember for the rest of your life as absolute perfection. However, wedding planning is by no means simple, and if you are working on a deadline, it can become a source of some serious anxiety. Luckily, we have a few tips that will help you pull it off without worrying like crazy throughout the process.
Make a Plan

Creating a checklist in this situation is not only immensely satisfying, but absolutely essential. It’s easy to get swept up in all the tasks and the excitement, and you don’t want to forget anything important. Try to set priorities early on. Some things will be non-negotiable, others can be dropped if need be. This perspective might prove indispensable.
Do It Yourself

Sometimes it’s easier to do part of the work yourself than look for someone to do it for you. For instance, why not send the invites by email? Depending on the season, you could swap the conventional venue for an elegant marquee in your own garden. Many brides do their own makeup. There are plenty of things you could save both time and money on.
Dress for the Occasion

Finding a gown is one of the most stressful but also most satisfying parts of the process. In a pinch, there are many non-bridal stores that carry beautiful dresses that can double as a wedding gown. The groom can go classic by renting a tux, or opt for ready-to-wear suits in any number of stores, from the high end, to the affordable ones. As far as the bridesmaids’ dresses are concerned, there’s no need to insist on matching dresses. In fact, it’s extremely difficult to find a dress model and color that will suit all of your bridesmaids with their different figures and complexions.
Don’t Compromise on the Food and Music

There are plenty of things you can compromise on, but the two things that play the greatest part in whether your party is a hit or a miss are the food and the music. Just think about it: people expect to be well fed, and after that, they’re ready to party. Quality food and drinks go a long way when it comes to guest satisfaction. Finding a caterer on short notice can be problematic. For smaller weddings, you could even ask a friend or family member to do it for you. All you need is a mobile coolroom hire to make sure your food stays fresh, and – voila! After that, you just need a killer band to get the party started.
Embrace a Little Chaos

When you don’t have months or even years for planning, it’s healthy to realize early on that you will have to compromise on some things. Don’t insist on every little detail. Some things can, perhaps, be left to chance. If you adopt a relaxed outlook, you might just end up pleasantly surprised.
Never lose sight of your true goal. Of course, it’s important to have a beautiful wedding, but don’t fret about the details. In all the worry and stress of planning, it’s easy to misplace your sense of perspective. In the end, no one is going to remember if the color of the flowers matched the color of your shoes. But they (and you) will surely remember a great party and a day filled with love and happiness.
