Wedding planning can be stressful enough with plenty of time to plan, but when you’re short on time and also short on the perfect vendors to fit your vision and budget, the stress can get real and real fast.

Perhaps your ideal photographer booked up quickly or ended up being outside of your budget, and you put off your search until you could dedicate more time to finding the right fit — and now you’re less than six months away from your big day and you’re still photog free.

Or maybe you just don’t want to wait to get hitched, but you don’t want to elope, either. It can be tough to find all the pieces to the puzzle as time ticks away.
