How I Planned My Magical Wedding In 30 Days

Weddings are often looked upon as daunting impossibilities, 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!

1. 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.

2. Pinterest Visualization Board

Pin all of your inspirations on a mood board to manifest exactly what you want.

3. Use social media

Use social media to find all of your desired vendors and get price quotes (catering, entertainment, bartending, etc.).

4. Budget

Calculate your budget and cut back costs on unnecessary things.

5. Final touches

Book the vendors, secure the venue, send out the invites, and let the magic begin!
