How to Plan a Wedding in Los Angeles in 3 Months? Part #3

Make your wedding day plan/timeline.

Ensure your wedding planner and guests have copies of the finalized timeline, so everyone knows what to expect.

No more time can be wasted in putting off preparations. Now that you've double-checked that everything is moving along as expected, you can move forwards.

1 Month To Go: The Last Minute Stuff

Most of the work should be done now, and we're getting there. Check to see if things are moving forwards as expected. These responsibilities should be wrapped up by the end of the third month of your contract.

Write your wedding vows.

It's time to put pen to paper and write the perfect vows now that the bulk of the stressful planning is over. Do some digging on the internet and come up with a list of qualities in your potential life partner that you find endearing. Create a written message that conveys your affection and gratitude. You and your partner can write the vows together, or you can write them separately. If you choose to correspond with them individually, you should have your officiant read them ahead to ensure they complement each other and are the same length. They can also contribute to the creation of your vows.

Get a final headcount and make a seating chart.

The wedding venue and caterer need to know the final guest count about two weeks before the big day. Getting your RSVPs in by now would be greatly appreciated. If not, contact those who have yet to respond with an RSVP and ask them nicely to do so. If you don't hear from them, it's safe to assume they aren't coming. If you want to ensure that guests are seated in specific areas at your reception, you can start making a seating chart immediately (since you should know everyone is coming).

Confirm details and plan with your vendors

You should contact your suppliers a few weeks ahead of time to ensure that everything is on schedule. Make sure you and your partner have a shared vision for the wedding's timeline and organization. When can we expect the cake to arrive? Once your photographer has arrived, when can we expect to begin taking pictures? When do the flowers typically appear? How late will you get in trouble if you show up? Etc.

Go in for your final wedding dress fitting.

Depending on how they handle stress, many brides either put on or lose weight in the months and weeks leading up to the wedding. Arrange for a final dress fitting a week or two before the big day so that you have time to make any last-minute adjustments.

Party on at your bachelorette party.

There should be a pre-wedding party for you and your bridesmaids. Wedding planning assistance is not limited to the maids of honor. This is an excellent opportunity to include the girlfriends you couldn't ask to be at your wedding party.

It's finally here: the big day! You're probably going to go crazy from all the stress of the wedding's last-minute decisions and preparations, but it'll be worth it when you see your future husband's face as you walk down the aisle.

How to Plan a Wedding in 3 Months: Tips & Tricks

Making a wedding schedule is challenging. It's possible, but the wedding might not be as elaborate as the bride had hoped if she only had 90 days to plan everything. However, a wedding can be held in as little as 90 days with careful preparation!

Think Outside the (Vendor) Box

Even if it's too late to secure the services of the top wedding professionals in your area, you can still host a stunning celebration.

I discuss a variety of unconventional methods for organizing a wedding:

  • Discover if the restaurant of your choice has a buffet and if it offers the foods you enjoy.

  • If you're having a small ceremony and reception at home, you can save money by having guests bring a dish to share.

  • Instead of providing free drinks all night long, consider purchasing alcohol in bulk from a winery or brewery and hiring a bartending student to serve.

  • Instead of spending a lot of money on a live band or DJ for the wedding, you can play your music on an mp3 player.

  • Contact local flower shops and enquire if they offer simple seasonal flower arrangements. If they don't need to order anything out of the ordinary, they may be able to assist you.

  • The next time you need a special occasion cake but don't want to spend the money on a custom order, grab a generic cake from the grocery store and top it with a unique cake topper you found on Etsy. You could also get a sheet cake from the grocery store and call it good because, let's be honest: we all have a soft spot for that frosting.

Prioritize Your Guests

If paper invitations are still a must three months out, that can be arranged. It's essential to send out invitations quickly so that guests have time to decide whether or not they can make it and can confirm their attendance via email. Expect to follow up with some invitees to get a response, as your venue and vendors will need a final headcount a few weeks before the wedding.

You can maintain style for convenience when sending electronic invitations via email; there are many lovely templates to choose from.

Find an Officiant Early On

The ceremony can be performed by anyone legally ordained, such as a minister, justice of the peace, judge, or even a friend. Your wedding ceremony will need a celebrant, so now is the time to start making inquiries.

Be Flexible With Your Wedding Attire

If you're looking for a way to stand out from the crowd on your wedding day, consider purchasing a white bridesmaid dress. We guarantee you'll see substantial savings by the deal's end. Indulge your inner shopper and peruse the racks at your local mall, on the internet, or in a vintage store; you might find something you love. Anyone needing a suit can purchase one from the rack; thrift shops are a person's best friend.

Please don't bother with formal attire; it's your wedding, not anyone else's.

Conclusion

The stress of wedding planning is natural, even when everything goes smoothly. You need to be well-organized and can make quick decisions if you need to plan a wedding in a short amount of time. After getting engaged, you may find that the most important things to do are the ones that require the most planning. Even if you hire a wedding planner, you still need to take the time to consult with friends and family. With such a short time, you'll need a wedding party to support you and roll with the punches.

Hiring dependable people to help you out is the next best thing to having a full-fledged wedding planner if you don't have the money for one. Once you've decided on a location, you can start planning a wedding theme or overall look that complements the space. To get the best deal on your wedding dress without sacrificing quality, shop around at bridal boutiques in your area and remember to peruse the sample sales and clearance racks. Now that the major hurdles have been cleared, you can focus on the minor details. You have until the end of the second month of your contract to get these done.


It's best to have your wedding registry set up well before the bridal shower. Inspire your group to submit their order as quickly as possible. You and your new spouse deserve some private time to rejoice in your marriage. Get the honeymoon planning started right away! Discuss your desired shots in detail with your photographer.


Now that you've finished the bulk of your wedding preparations, it's time to put pen to paper and write the perfect vows. Verify that progress is being made in the expected direction, and give everyone involved a copy of the finalized timetable. It's a good idea to check in with suppliers a few weeks ahead of time to make sure everything is on track. You and your bridesmaids deserve a celebration before the big day. Schedule your final dress fitting a week or two before the big day, so you have time to make any necessary adjustments.

As an alternative to pouring free drinks all night long, you could buy in bulk from a winery or brewery and have a bartending student serve guests. Fast invitation delivery gives guests plenty of time to consider whether or not they can attend. It would help if you started looking for a celebrant for your wedding.
