The period from the time you get engaged till the time you get married can span between three months to a year.
So, set a reasonable and sensible timeline using the time you have given yourselves.
An event planner can sit with you and guide you through this process.
The first thing you need to find is the venue for your simcha.
Remember to write a list of all the vendors you will need for the wedding and set dates in your calendar to meet them at times that suit you.
The more organized you are with your time, the less stressed you will be and the more enjoyment you will get out of doing it together with your partner.
