Going abroad for 2 months in the last 6 months before the wedding?

Hello, all! My wedding is in early November 2024. Would it be a bad idea to go abroad mid-May to mid-July that year? I plan on hiring a partial service planner.

Thanks!

Re: Going abroad for 2 months in the last 6 months before the wedding?

  • I don't see any reason that it would be a problem. You'd just want to make sure that you set up an international phone plan so that you can take calls abroad and regularly check email. 
  • Hello! Planning to go abroad from mid-May to mid-July for your wedding in early November can be manageable, especially with the assistance of a partial service planner. However, there are a few factors to consider:

    1. Timing and coordination: Make sure you communicate your travel plans clearly with your planner and establish a timeline for essential wedding tasks. This will help ensure that everything stays on track during your absence.

    2. Vendor availability: Check the availability of key vendors during the period you plan to be abroad. It's important to secure important bookings and make necessary arrangements well in advance.

    3. Communication and remote planning: Ensure that you have a reliable means of communication with your planner and vendors while you are abroad. Stay connected through email, video calls, or other channels to stay updated on the planning progress.

    4. Flexibility and contingency plans: Keep in mind that unexpected changes or issues may arise during your absence. Be prepared to be flexible and have contingency plans in place to address any potential challenges.

    Ultimately, with proper planning, communication, and coordination, going abroad during that time should not necessarily be a bad idea. Just make sure you stay involved in the planning process and have a solid support system in place to handle any wedding-related tasks while you are away.


  • I agree with PPs. It  shouldn't be a problem that far ahead of the actual date. You will need to be available for decision making but you could have just about everything planned before you leave. That way there wouldn't be stuff to do while you are gone. DD was married in early September. We had everything done by mid May (they had a short engagement). Other than mailing the invites and accepting invitations (beginning of July) there was nothing else to do until the week or so before the wedding.
