How to Plan a Wedding in 4 Months

Monday, 17 February 2020
No, we haven’t gone mad, IT IS POSSIBLE to plan a wedding in just 4 months. You don’t believe it? Grab pen and paper and take note, because we are showing you how to plan a dream wedding in no time!

1. Tick the boxes
Wedding planning is time consuming, so be practical and well-organised. Create to-do lists and set realistic goals and deadlines. You’ll get the job done without even realising it! We even include a Wedding Checklist in our wedding packs!

2. When & Where
The first thing you have to do is set a date and venue for your wedding. The options may be somewhat more limited when we plan a wedding in the short or medium term, so try to be open minded – especially if you are planning a church wedding.

If you are thinking of holding a civil ceremony, your options may be broader. Contact our Wedding Team now to learn more about civil ceremonies at The Redcastle Hotel.

Congratulations! The date and place for your wedding have been decided; now you can focus on the details!

3. Help! 
Don’t be afraid to ask for help. You surely have friends or family who know about music, décor, etc. or that are already married and can offer advice. Ask for their support! They will be happy to assist in your big day.

Be sure to check out our new all-inclusive Wedding Package, perfect for couples looking to get married in 2020. Not only will you have the best service at the best price (only €42 pp!) as well as an incomparable venue; but our dedicated wedding team will be at your disposal throughout the wedding planning process and, of course, on the day.

4. Details Matter
Guest list finished? Time to send the invites! Maybe also order wedding favours. What about some flowers? And the photographer, of course. You have less time to plan but that doesn't mean you should give up your dream wedding.

You don't know where to start? Our team will provide you with a list of our trusted suppliers to help you fulfil your wedding dreams… in record time!

5. Say Yes to the Dress
Ordering a custom suit or dress is ruled out, as it would not arrive in time for the big day. But don't worry; there are many outlets where you can buy the dress of your dreams and leave it perfect with minimal arrangements in your local alterations shop.

However, we recommend you book hair and make-up services as soon as possible, as they are often incredibly in-demand.

With a little determination, good organisation and the support of an experienced wedding team you will not have any impediments to get married in 4 months. Do you accept the challenge? Contact our wedding team for further information.
