Planning My Wedding In Four Months

Recommended Posts

Hi All! 

 

I am planning our destination wedding for May 6, 2014... exactly 4 months from today! Also, we will be having our reception party back home here in Cape May, NJ. I know that it seems crazy, but I do not have anything confirmed yet. Our flights & hotel is booked, but that is about it!

 

I feel like I basically started truly planning today. If anyone has any tips for planning in such a short time frame I would appreciate any help I can get!

 

I am so happy I stumbled onto this site!

Hello Nursemorgan,

Congrats on your Nuptial and welcome on BDW, As wedding Planner in the Riviera Maya, I can tell you 4 months can work you just have to put your focus glove on.

 

If you are just Eloping then finding a hotel that does Elopement is great, if not then some the private locations in the Riviera Maya which we are happy to recommend where we can help with just the minister and photographer and flowers for and anything extra you may need.

 

If you are planning a smaller group wedding then:

 

1.Start your Planning by choosing a location, and secure it. decide on your theme/ colors

2. Send out invitations not necessary to do STD with only 4 months to go.

3. Search and then book your photographer and DJ

4. Book your hair and make up

5. focus on any extra entertainment such mariach , trio for the ceremony etc.

6. Decide on wedding favors 

8. pick your flowers and decor. wedding cake

9 Timeline and celebrations

It will work, but it is going to take some focus.  It also depends on how ":big" of a wedding you are doing.

 

Best wishes and congrats!

@@nursemorgan Picking a location and date at this time is going to be very challenging, good luck! I booked my date a year in advance and the dates were completely filled up in a month! You might need to be flexible with the time of the ceremony! That will definitely help you find availability on your date!

You can definitely pull a wedding together in four months, it just takes a lot of planning. I would say you can begin by contacting resorts to see their availability. Since you are starting pretty late,  you might not have many options with times. But I think you can definitely accomplish your wedding. Happy Planning!!!

Hey Morgan!

 

   I am basically trying to book the same thing except we are looking at May 9th and 10th... Couple of quick questions... how are you getting your guests from Marriott to the Ceremony location? and where did you book your ceremony though? Thanks :)
