Weddings are often looked upon as daunting impossibilities that can not be achieved without copious amounts of money or extensive planning, however, I am here to share with you how I made my enchanted forest wedding a reality in just 30 days!
Today, July 18th, 2017, makes one year with my beloved husband. He proposed to me on February 20th, 2016, at Big Bear Lake in California — I remember it like it was yesterday.
Soon after, however, I found out that my grandmother was in the last stages of terminal lung cancer. With no more than 30 days of planning and fierce love to guide us, we were able to organize a mystical celebration of love that my grandmother would be able to witness and enjoy, and I got to marry my prince charming!
Below are the 5 steps I took to quickly turn my dreams into a reality. You can do it, too!
- Envision your perfect wedding and write it down!
Visualize your dream wedding and decide on your theme, guest count, date, venue, dresses & tuxedos, invitations, pre-wedding photoshoot(s), number of bridesmaids/groomsmen, etc.
- Pinterest Visualization Board
Pin all of your inspirations on a mood board to manifest exactly what you want.
- Use social media
Use social media to find all of your desired vendors and get price quotes (catering, entertainment, bartending, etc.).
Calculate your budget and cut back costs on unnecessary things.
- Final touches
Book the vendors, secure the venue, send out the invites, and let the magic begin!
Happily Ever After
Is a dream wedding with your special man something you have always wanted? — you can have it! With or without a pressing deadline, all it takes is determination, creativity, and a heart full of love!
