Wedding Planning Decisions, This vs That with Kelly McWilliams
This vs That Wedding Decision: Short vs Long Engagements
Show Notes

Guess what? You don't have to take exactly a year to plan your wedding.  You could do it in 3 weeks or over plan it over 2 years.  In this episode, Kimberly and I talk about all the reasons, benefits, pros and cons to having a short engagement vs a long engagement.
In this episode we'll chat about how:

  • your personality is something you need to consider when deciding
  • money can play a part, both with saving and spending more
  • venue and vendor availability
  • you should consider your guests and how much time they'll need to prepare (especially for destination weddings)

With more than 20 years of event planning experience, ranging from corporate conferences to non-profit galas, Kimberly Rhodes found her love for weddings while planning her own. Now in its tenth year, her award-winning event planning company Hitched Events focuses on beautifully-detailed weddings and other celebratory events in the Dallas area. Kimberly is passionate about creating events that are just as stunning as they are seamlessly executed, and she is fueled by both complicated event logistics and gorgeous design aesthetics. In 2016, Kimberly launched This Week in Weddings, one of the first wedding industry podcasts for entrepreneurs, now enjoyed by event professionals all over the world. She also serves as the Immediate Past President of the Dallas-Fort Worth Chapter of the National Association of Catering & Events. When she's not planning and designing fabulous weddings or co-hosting a podcast, you can find her watching a reality show on Bravo, cuddled up with her husband, dog, and a glass of wine, or digging into chips and queso on a sunny patio.
