No two couples are the same which means that no two wedding timelines are either! So the question that stands is, “When should you plan your wedding date?”
The thing is, some may want a shorter engagement and get the right marriage bliss while others may want to take their time and have a longer engagement. Neither is right nor wrong! It all, simply, depends on your relationship!
Here are some factors to consider when planning your wedding.
Are you both working full-time, have family commitments, or have a lifestyle that is always packed with adventures and trips? A longer engagement might be better so you have time.
Do you have money set aside, are you getting assistance from family, are you paying for it yourselves, you might need those extra months to save up.
Are you wanting to elope or have an intimate celebration of fewer than 50 people or a big celebration with lots of details? An elopement can be planned in a shorter period of time with more flexibility. Depending on the venue and other vendors, your bigger celebration may need to plan for much further out.
Do you want a specific date or a specific season or are you flexible with who your wedding vendors are based on your date? Some dates can book up to two years in advance. While having a weekday wedding can be easier to find a date.
Do you like to get things done quickly, like checklists, and are very organized, or are you one that likes to linger, take your time, and not feel rushed?
No matter when you choose to plan your wedding date, do what is best for your relationship and set you both up for a successful marriage.
