How to Plan your Wedding in 3 Months | Complete Guide

When it comes to wedding planner work, there are several aspects you need to consider. You can read out the ideal wedding preparation below, and tailor it in the way you want.  

Note- This wedding planner is a basic one. You can add or remove any elements as per your choice. We have constructed it in a way that works right for you and the contributors associated with this wedding strategy.  

Plan Your Wedding: Month One


You should probably start with things that take time and requires pre-booking such as venue booking, caterers, photographers, decorators, and others.   

Let’s call it the R&D stage where you go through the perfect wedding planner directories and search for the best suitable wedding vendors for your budget.  

Get all the legalities done in advance 

No matter how boring that would sound, but without a legal marriage license, you just can’t move ahead. Apply for the marriage license in the first place, and 3 months is the time needed for this job.  

Budget is something you need to decide on the first place  

Talk it out with your partner and your family regarding the budget. It’s an essential point for a successful wedding. 

The guest list making! 

Discuss this with your wedding coordinator and see the number of guests you have planned to invite. This again depends on the wedding day budget mainly, so make a temporary list and see how well it’s suiting with the budget.  

Wedding venue – The most important 

You can go with a prime location for this, which is convenient for the guests to come and for you as well! Check out the places on Google and see for any discounts for pre-bookings. Wedding management is not an easy thing,  

Think about the wedding theme 

Is there any cool wedding theme idea on your mind? While some of the clients could be planning for this day for a long time now. Are you planning for a beach wedding on a budget? Here’s The Knot’s amazing Beach Wedding blog, which you can keep it for a reference.  

Also, you can take some family inspiration here and consider the wedding theme that vibes well with everyone.  

Book the caterers 

Make a list of your favorite hotels and dining places – and see which one fits your budget and your wedding party requirements. As a quick tip, you can also book your wedding party with a big catering team so that there is less rush with the bookings.  

Also, don’t forget the cake! Ask the hotel authorities if they are providing customized wedding cakes for the party orders. If they aren’t, then check wedding cake ideas online and get in touch with the best local bakers in your city. Get all the food and cake bookings sorted! 

Wedding attire selection 

Ideally, wedding dress for bride and groom are selected 6 months prior to the marriage – but as you are running short of time, we got many cool alternatives!  

Visit the nearest bridal boutique where you could find stock of clothes with varying sizes. You could try them out, and later purchase/rent them for the wedding day. The same goes for the grooms!  

While you shop for the bridal dresses, you can even plan for a dress code for your lovely bridesmaid [if you have the plan to!].   

Find the best photographers! 

Do you like being clicked a lot? Then this would be your most favorite segment.  

You might have already fixed the photographer for your wedding or someone who is looking out for the best wedding photographer. Do your research and fix the bridal portrait photographer. Book a videographer too, as we love the videos too!  

We have seen many of the people planning a wedding in 2 months, it is possible. But with an extra 30 days, you could plan and choose better.
