Not everyone has a 12 month+ timeline to plan their wedding and that’s okay! If you and your partner lead busy lives or just want to tie the knot sooner than later, it’s definitely still possible to plan your dream wedding in half the usual time. With a little extra organization, flexibility and help from your friends and family, you’re sure to plan your perfect wedding in just a few months.

To help get you started, we thought we’d share this short engagement checklist from Shutterfly. It includes all the basic tasks you need in order to make your big day happen. From booking an officiant to following up with each one of your vendors, this checklist will help keep you on track. If you’re planning most of the wedding yourself, they also included a task list to keep tabs on any designated assignments you might’ve given. There’s also a handy DIY sheet to remind yourself of any materials needed to complete the projects you’re planning on making yourself.
