Solving the Planning Puzzle

Updated: Jun 24

How many hours does it take to plan a wedding?

ANSWER: Some say at least 250 hours, others say 36-60 days! It takes many hours to plan a wedding and typically couples spread their planning out between 9 and 12 months.

How many hours you devote during the months you spend planning your wedding will depend greatly on your enthusiasm for planning, the type of help you have, your budget, the style of your wedding, the availability of the suppliers you contact and how lavish your wedding is. If the numbers are scaring you because you are time-poor, or you are just not that keen on your wedding to take over your entire life for the next year, we highly suggest:

Hire a professional to assist with sourcing the detailed tasks, vendors, and your venue for your Wedding!
