To successfully plan your wedding in five months, you need to be able to multitask. Selecting a venue is not the only thing you should try to accomplish within the first month. Fashion, including bridal gown, bridesmaid dresses, and attire for the groom and groomsmen, needs to be at the top of your list as well.
When shopping for a wedding dress, be sure to ask your consultant about designers or styles that can be ready in your time frame. A rush fee might be required to ensure you get your dress on time. You may luck out and find a dress you can take with you that day, but that is not something you should rely on during your shopping process.
