Because that’s not a loaded question, right?
The problem is that the answer is different for every one and every wedding.
You and your partner have already made the most important decision…you’re getting married!! But, people are already asking you if you’ve set the date. I know, I know! You just got engaged. Don’t worry; they are just eager to help you celebrate! However, make sure you don’t rush into picking a date that’s too soon and cause yourself undue stress. Above all else, you need to enjoy your big day!!
To get an idea of how long you will need to plan your wedding, let’s take a look at one of the big decisions that you have coming up. :: Entertainment!
There are so many options here…live band, dj, dancers. Endless possibilities!! Entertainment really sets the tone of the kind of wedding you want to have. Give yourself plenty of time to go check out different vendors. You want to be able to watch a couple of their gigs to make sure they have the right vibe for you.

Creative Touch Entertainment one our amazing FABuLIST vendors, gave me a head’s up on this one. They start booking clients out six to nine months in advance. I don’t usually plan that far in advance to shake my groove thang, but in the case of your wedding, it does makes sense.
That’s just to give you a small idea of how long you need to plan your wedding. Another important question…are you working with an event planner? If so, you are going to be a bit ahead of the curve. Event planners work with vendors constantly and have great relationships with them, and that benefits you as a client. If you have a short amount of time until your big day those vendors may be able to fit you in better than someone you called out of the phone book.
Remember this is just one of the decisions you will need to make over the coming months.
So, stay tuned for our next post… we’ll be talking clothes!!
