FH and I put our money down and signed the contract! Our wedding date is officially Saturday, October 4, 2014! We’re getting married on the patio of a beautiful restaurant right on a lake downtown and then moving inside for a buffet reception. It’s gorgeous and sophisticated and FH and I are SO excited to take this step! It’s almost like getting engaged again!
Anyone else have their wedding venues reserved? I’d love to hear about where other October 2014 bees are getting married! Our coordiantor made it sound like she thinks we’re a little crazy for booking so far out but we had our hearts set on our date and venue and we had the money so why not?

Yay so exciting! It’s such a big relief to set a date plus now you can start on the work part of planning. Congrats 🙂

We just re-booked our venue earlier this month. We had booked it previously but cancelled it due to personal reasons. You are definitely not crazy for booking early. The venue is the biggest of them all and they go quick!!!!
When we first met with our coordinator to book our 2013 date she was like I’ve already had a good amount of people booking for 2013 so you aren’t early. Eventually we pushed it back to 2014 but we are getting married in an hotel ballroom at The Holiday Inn
I would say the other big vendor is a DJ and a photographer – those go pretty quickly as well.

Congrats! I agree with PP about booking DJ and photographer/videographer next, particularly if you find someone you really like.
