How to Prepare a Wedding in a Matter of Days


As they say, love may come when you least expect it. For some couples, it takes years for them to finally decide to settle down, while for some, an engagement and the wedding may come in as short as 3 months, or maybe even less.

As seen in their reality show, Khloe Kardashian famously did her wedding, preparation and all, in just 9 days. Think you can pull it off? Even without the star power, here are some tips to have your dream wedding in record time.

Work on the following major areas:

– Your venue: While major hotels and popular wedding venues may have been booked in advance, you can look at smaller hotels of other alternative venues for the reception. Better yet, you may want to consider a garden wedding or a beach wedding near your area, where the dates may be readily available. Not your traditional hall, or maybe even in an ancestral home, your wedding may even be more spectacular and unique compared to other venues.

– Gowns: If you can blow your budget, go to your favorite designer and get a readily available wedding gown. If not, there are bridal stores where you can choose from a wide array of gowns readily available. For the bridesmaids, you can look for readily available dress at your local department store. Just ensure you get the right sizes of your bridesmaids so you can readily check whether their sizes are available. If not, alteration shops will be able to make the needed repairs in a matter of days as well.

– Flowers: This may be the most challenging as florists sometimes make their orders in advance. As an alternative, you can ask which flowers may be ordered and delivered just in time for your wedding day. Have a few choices or at least 3 florists so you can still compare prices even if you are out of time.

– Food: If you can find a smaller hotel, the catering normally comes with the hotel venue as well so it wouldn’t be so hard with this one. If you are planning a garden or in some other venue where they don’t have a dedicated caterer, look for other caterers as well apart from the major ones. Major or popular caterers may already say no to you as if they do not have enough preparation or their major food suppliers are not readily available, some are not willing to compromise their quality and service just so they can cater to you. Some are strict when it comes to booking deadlines. So try to look for other caterers which are not in the ‘major league’ but try to get reviews or ask some friends to refer some to you.

With the short time available, you may want to enlist the help of a wedding coordinator. This will make your work a whole lot easier, saving you more time and money (on some aspects at least). With the weddings they are arranging, they would be able to identify which venue or suppliers would still be available to cater to your needs.
