My FI and I just got engaged, and I'd love to have a December wedding. I don't want to wait a whole extra year, but am I crazy for trying to pull it off in just 6 months?

First, congratulations! Second, while 6 months isn't much time for planning, you can pull it off. Depending on how big or elaborate you want it will determine how difficult it is. I'd suggest looking for a venue the offers full services-- linens, catering, decor-- to help save you from having to worry about some of that.

Absolutely you can! Just know that there are some places you may have to cut corners because you'll be in crunch time. I'd recommend finding a checklist for planning a wedding in 6 months to help keep you on schedule.

If you can find a venue that is available, then I say yes. You would just have to really start booking other vendors after that quickly and waste no time!

Yes! I did. The best way to begin is to attend a (free) bridal show so you can meet a whole bunch of vendors face to face, hear the band and/or DJ, and view gowns. Then follow up with online research. Go with local vendors who know your area. You can ask vendors about other vendors (i.e. ask the DJ about ceremony music or flowers, the hall about musicians and limos, etc.). All vendors know other good vendors throughout the wedding business they are happy to recommend. This will help speed along your planning. I find the major thing which slows down the planning process is figuring out which vendors are good and reliable.
