Planning your wedding in 1 month
Photo by Jennifer Strange Photography
We’ve noticed a trend recently with our couples planning shorter engagements. We could not be happier! While there are always pros and cons of both the longer engagement and shorter, we’re here to help you through the planning process no matter what you choose. Everyone knows that planning a wedding can be stressful and time-consuming. Some brides live for this phase of their engagement, while others may dread the very thought of it. Planning the wedding of your dreams in a few short weeks is not only possible; it can be enjoyable as well. We’re here to offer you some tips to help make it an easy and enjoyable process.

CHOOSE YOUR VENUE WISELY
When choosing your venue, there are a few key points you should keep in mind. This is especially true if you have a shorter engagement.

Choose a venue with inclusive services to save time sourcing additional vendors, or a venue who has connections and offers numerous recommendations to local resources who would be available for your date. For example, Wolf Oak Acres offers not only a gorgeous space, but also offers all indoor/outdoor ceremony and reception locations, furnishings, decor and beverage service — all in one effort.
Make sure to check the reviews of a venue before you book. Mistakes can be made if you book a venue too hastily. Reading the reviews of past couples can be a great way to get a feel for the venue.

"My husband and I just got married at Wolf Oak Acres last Friday and everything I imagined..it was better. Russ & Katrina made our day go as smooth as possible and helped with EVERYTHING. The venue is gorgeous and has a ton of different places for photos and for the ceremony. The inside of the venue is air conditioned and heated so you’re always comfortable. The alcohol/beverages were ICE COLD which is always important and anything they could do to help was done. The cabins on site are brand new and very clean, they had everything you needed in there. I can’t say enough about this venue and the owners. If I could do it all over again I would still have it here! My entire wedding party, parents and guests all feel the same way!! THANK YOU RUSS & KATRINA, for making us feel at home at your gorgeous wedding venue!!!!!!

ASK FOR HELP
There is no shame in asking for help. Your friends and family are there for you and are excited about your upcoming nuptials as well! Let them give you a hand.
BE REALISTIC IN YOUR PLANNING
Yes, you can plan a stunning wedding in a short time, but it’s also important to be realistic in knowing you may not be planning an event equal to The Royal Wedding. There is something beautiful and even elegant about simplicity. Use that knowledge while mapping out your wedding day details.
INVITE YOUR GUESTS
While nothing beats a gorgeous invitation suite, Evites are a great option to efficiently invite your friends and family to your wedding in a time crunch! Evites are easily customizable to your wedding theme and are quick, easy and delivered directly to your guests’ inboxes. You’ll receive responses faster and email is a great way to get in touch with people.
Will you need to decorate your venue a lot or a little? Is the space stunning by itself? Adding small touches to spruce the space up just enough to show your personality and style is what you want when planning a wedding in a short time.
