If you’re reading this, I’m betting you just got (or are expecting) a very special new piece of jewelry. Probably one that typically requires you to plan a wedding. Once you announce to your friends and family, get ready for the inevitable interrogation. Their number one question will be “So when’s the big day?”🎉
In this blog, we’re going over all the things you’ll want to consider when deciding the length of your engagement. You and your partner might be ready to dive head-first into planning or you may prefer to relax and take things slow for now. Either way, no worries, because the fact of the matter is: there’s no one-size-fits-all answer here. It really depends on your vision and priorities. You could say “I do” in just a few weeks, or you might decide to plan for a few years. But if you’re aiming for a seamless, organized, and all-around amazing celebration, just know it’ll take a bit of time and effort to make it happen!
As we noted above, there’s no clear cut. Most of our couples spend about a year to a year and a half planning their wedding. This timeframe allows plenty of time for understanding priorities, booking vendors, finding the right venue, and ensuring all of the details align with your vision. It’s enough time to feel confident in your decisions but not so much time that you can overthink every detail. However, keep in mind you can certainly plan your wedding in less or more time.
Planning your dream wedding is as unique as your love story. It’s all about what works for you, your schedule, the level of detail in your vision, and your vendors’ availability. Whether you’re sprinting through planning or savoring a leisurely stroll towards the big day, what matters most is the final result – a celebration of your love and commitment to one another. So, soak in every moment, enjoy the process, and craft a celebration that you’ll cherish forever.
