    So we have set our date for the wedding to be the week of October 5th to plan it around fall break so our nieces/nephews could go and because half of my side of the family is in the school system. Everyone knows we are planning to go to Mexico but we still don't have a resort booked because I just can't seem to make up my mind! I'm starting to get a little stressed about getting everything done!!! Basically, I just need someone to tell me they planned their DW in under six months and it turned out okay so I know it can be done!

      i have a little over six months and i don't even have a date yet
      i'm not worried. I already feel like i have too much time to plan, meaning that I really just want to find a place and do some flowers and music and not get too crazy. the more time i have the more i want to do, and then the more stressed out I will get.
      Its definitely do-able!

        We planned ours in 6 months and everything was wonderful. We also eloped. lol. But you can do it no matter how big. The resort takes care of most of the big stuff. Just concentrate on what is most important to you in terms of the little things (favors, invites, oot bags, etc.). If you try to incorporate too much, you will get overwhelmed. Also, delegate responsibility. Even though we eloped, there were a lot of tasks to complete including our AHR so my husband and i split up tasks and checked in with each other. But seriously, you'll be amazed on how it will all come together.

          You can do it in six months, most of the resorts have packages and they do a lot of the planning for you.

          I was married in Cancun, let me know if you have any questions!

          Good Luck!

            We got engaged Christmas Day, then finally decided on our resort sometime in February, and got married July 5th (close to 5 months, I think). It was very do-able, even with me being a teacher, selling lia sophia, teaching scrapbook classes, etc.! Needless to say, I did a TON in June!

              We were engaged in late Feb and didn't want to make any decisions right away. Probably bc we knew we had totally different visions for the wedding which we ended up fighting over quite a bit. So, in the end, we didn't really start planning until June and were married in Nov. I felt like I had more than enough time for everything. In fact, once I signed the contract, I probably didn't even do much more for the next couple months aside from send out a save the date. Totally doable.

                  totally do-able. I booked our wedding way in advance but didn't start planning anything until Jan, so basically 3 months. Sometimes less time is better, makes you decisive!

                    I gave myself 8 months, put together a intensely detailed to do list, and I'm spending a ton of time looking for houses and other things - you can do it. My one suggestion is to not get to focused on the little stuff - and do things that will make it easy - DIY projects that take a day or two rather than a week... If it's too intricate or complicated, go a different route.

                    And other than that, the hotel can take care of just about everything else.

                      You can plan in 6 months without any problem. I remember it took me a long time to decide where to have it, but plans didn't really start coming together until I had about 5 months. Everything turned out fine. You can do this!
