What are the advantages of getting married soon after an engagement?

Cupid’s Advice:

For many couples, engagements last about a year in order to prepare for a big, fairytale wedding, but for other future brides and grooms, waiting that long is out of the question. The choice to have a long engagement or a short one is entirely up to you. If you’re thinking about getting married sooner rather than later, Cupid has some tips:

1. More intimate: Weddings pulled together in a short amount of time tend to be more intimate and simple. You might have envisioned your dream wedding as a small ceremony with just your close friends and family. If that’s the case, there’s no need to draw out your engagement. Preparing for a more laid-back wedding shouldn’t take you long at all. Have the same friends you’re planning to invite help you with the ceremony and reception setup and get ready to walk down that aisle.

2. Stress free: The wedding process can be very stressful for most couples, especially if one of you is a bit of a perfectionist. Planning for a wedding over a long period of time can lead to some strain in a relationship and you can even forget why you wanted to marry your partner in the first place. Getting married shortly after you announce your engagement will eliminate any materialistic worries that come with planning an elaborate wedding. Don’t worry about what your centerpieces will look like or how your wedding favors will turn out. Remember what’s important – you get to spend the rest of your life with the person you love.

3. Cost-effective: If you get married in a haste, you’ll find that you won’t have much time to splurge on expensive wedding items. Obviously, you’ll need a wedding dress for the bride, a tuxedo for the groom, etc, but you won’t have to worry about wasting your money hiring a DJ or photographer. You can use the money you saved on the wedding on more important things – like starting a family of your own.
