My cousin lives in Italy, but they had the wedding here in the States. She came for a 2 week trip a few months before the wedding, and they did ALL the planning in those two weeks. Had the date been available (and the family was all there) at the end of that trip, she would have been ready to get married. You can do it!

I could have been ready to go in 2 months, but we needed more time for people to be able to request off work & book their trip. But, the longer I had to plan the more I ended up doing. Most of it wasn't necessary. Just extra.

You've got the groom so now you just need a dress and a location. I went with the basic package and it was great. I made my own programs, etc. but all of that stuff was just an extra personal touch, not necessary to the wedding itself.
The key to planning in a short time is being super flexible and asking for help when you need it. You might also need to be aware of paperwork processing deadlines, or get legally married here and symbolically married elsewhere.

I agree with Mandy, there are a lot of decisions you can make in 1 day or so. When brides have 1 year+ to plan I think more anxiety is created because you spend too much time pondering instead of making choices. I could have done mine in 3 months because I also let the WC do her thing. I did a few extras (so not necessary) and basically just planned on showing up!
Some guests will need more of an advanced notice to attend than others (scheduling, finances, etc.), so consider that.
