At the best of times, planning your dream wedding is a tremendous feat that requires hard work, dedication, self-control, and organization; for these reasons, it’s bound to take quite a while. However, not everyone’s expected planning timeline is the same. This is mainly because most people lead different lives and are planning their wedding under differing circumstances. For example: If you are fully employed and working a 9 to 5 job, you cannot expect that it will take you the same amount of time to plan your wedding as your friend or neighbour who only works 10 hours a week. So because of these differences and varied factors, it’s important to determine how long it will take “you” to plan your wedding, independent of everyone else.
In this blog, we are going to talk about some of the things that you need to consider in order to determine how long it will take you to plan your wedding. So without further ague, let’s get right into it…
1. What career do you have and what lifestyle
The very first thing that you need to be conscious of when you and your spouse start trying to determine just how long the entire wedding planning process will take (so you can plan out how much time you’ll need to dedicate to said preparation, set a date and determine when to book your venue, your caterer, your cake, etc. and so much more), is your combined lifestyles. What exactly are your careers? How many hours do you spend working? Do either of you have very much free time? All of these questions will help you construct a pretty accurate timeline for your wedding preparations.
For example, if you are fully employed and have very little time to dedicate to wedding planning, it would be advisable to begin said preparations at least half a year in advance. However, if you find that you have a lot more free time on your hands and are willing to put in the work, it may be possible to get everything done within a few months, if not weeks.
2. What are your wedding dreams and desires
Sometimes, the answer to this question can tell you how long it will take to plan your wedding whether you like it or not. Your dreams and desires for your wedding, as well as how flexible you are with these things, will directly impact your timeline. For example, if you have a venue that you’ve always dreamed of hosting your wedding at and this venue must be booked 12 months+ in advance (which a large chunk of the most demanded venues often are), you’ll already have you answer.
