Getting engaged is such a magical moment in everyone’s lives! No matter how long you have been together, the moment you put a ring on it will mark a new stage in your life: the one where you commit to each other and to building a family together.

Most people take one year or more to plan their wedding – but that doesn’t mean it’s not doable within a shorter times span. The key lies in making sure you keep stress at bay and in making sure you follow through a strict plan every step of the way.

What are some of the tips to remember when planning a wedding in six months, for instance? We have gathered them right below – so read on and find out more.

· Start planning right away. Sit down with your fiancé and set a budget and create a draft guest list. By the end of the first month of planning, you should have already picked a wedding venue. By the end of the second month, you should have already sent out the Save the Date cards (to let guests know of the exact wedding date).

· By the end of the third month, you will want to make sure you have your wedding rings and that you have booked all of your wedding vendors (florist, officiant, photographer, caterer, hairstylist, makeup artist, and so on). Once all of this is set, start planning the rehearsal dinner and send out your final wedding invitations. Yes, this will be stressful – but as long as you keep your focus and don’t stray away from your plan, you will definitely make it through.

· Dedicate your fourth and fifth month of planning to the details: such as your hair and makeup trial, your wedding playlist, your seating chart, and buying gifts for your loved one, for your parents, and for your wedding party. Don’t forget to get your marriage license too! And, of course, don’t forget to plan your honeymoon as well.
