As a wedding coordinator, I’ve seen firsthand how stressful and overwhelming planning a wedding can be. That’s why I want to share with you the advantages of a last minute wedding and some helpful tips on how to get started.
One of the biggest advantages of a last minute wedding is that it takes the pressure off of having to plan and prepare for months in advance. Instead, you can focus on what really matters: your commitment to each other and the celebration of your love. With a shorter timeline, you may find that you are more efficient and focused, making it easier to make decisions and get things done.
Another advantage is that you may be able to save money. Venues and vendors often offer discounts for last minute bookings, as they may have open dates they are looking to fill. Additionally, you may be able to negotiate better prices since you are booking closer to the date.
So, how do you start planning a last minute wedding? Here are some helpful tips:
Set a budget: Determine how much you can realistically spend on your wedding and stick to it. With a shorter timeline, it can be easy to overspend, so be mindful of your budget throughout the planning process.
Hire a Wedding Coordinator: Hiring a wedding coordinator can be a great help when planning a last minute wedding.
Choose a venue: Look for venues that have availability on your desired date. Consider non-traditional venues, such as parks or private residences, which may have more availability and be less expensive.
Hire vendors: Start with the most important vendors, such as a photographer, caterer, and florist. Look for vendors who are available on your date and are willing to work with your timeline.
Keep it simple: With a shorter timeline, it may be more difficult to plan a large, elaborate wedding. Consider simplifying your plans and focusing on what is most important to you and your partner.
