Wedding Planning in 3 months

Help! I am getting married soon! As in soon!!!
Traditionally, couples plan the wedding for at least 6 to 8 months. This gives them ample preparation time. However, some couples are restricted with time due to some reasons. It may be that Dad is boarding the ship again to continue being a seaman, so we need to get married soon! Or a relative died and we should get married soon or wait another 3 year’s! or simply, my tummy will tell the world that we’re having a baby so we need to get married soon!

Fret not! We have squeeze in the normal 12 months preparation time into 3 months. But of course, it will require a lot of work! And quick decisions to make. And some trade-offs, too…

Use the calendar guide to help you breeze through your shortened wedding preparation. Good luck!
