October 2013 Weddings


Hi everyone!

Just wanted to say hello. I am newly engaged and planning a very short engagement. We are deciding between October 5 and October 19 of this year which really doesn't leave a lot of time for planning but we are having a small wedding, so I am hoping that we can get everything that we want done by then. I am excited to join this board and hope that I can get some great ideas from you all!

Re: Hello!

  • Welcome to the boards! You can put everything together in a short time period!  As soon as you are able, book your reception location, ceremony location and buy your dress. Those are the most time sensitive. Then, work on finding a dj, florist, photographer and videographer if you are interested in having one.

    Invites, decorations and other smaller details can be done at any time. Good luck! :)

  • Welcome! 

    I think it is possible to get a nice and simple wedding done in your time frame!  :) 

    Once you get the ceremony and reception location and your dress, the rest is, mostly, optional.  :)  Heck, I guess even the dress is optional, isn't it?  :)

    Good luck! 
  • Thank for the welcome! I will fill out the survey so you can get to know me a little better. And thank for the encouragement. We are starting to find some vendors that are still available so it's easing my worries a bit :)

  • Oooh good luck! My brother and his wife had a fairly short engagement as well, around the same number of months as yours will be, and they pulled together an awesome wedding, so I am sure you will be able to do the same! :) Especially if you want a smaller wedding.
