I think a year is too long to wait.  a few months? Maybe but not a whole year!

You may find more venues you like after you really start looking.  I’m sure you’ll get some on either side of the fence, but for me, I would go for year I want (next) over venue.

Yikes, I definitely think 2013 is too long!  It’s tricky when guys who are not natural planners are in charge of something that sets in motion planning that needs to be done in very specific timeframes….  If he didn’t feel pressured to put down a deposit and agrees that you should, then I would go ahead and do it.  It would probably end up taking the pressure off to do the deposit, actually.

I think the vendor is only part of it and its worth looking around at many places. I do find it odd to reserve a date without a ring, it doesn’t seem natural. I don’t think I would put my wedding off for another year just to have the venue. I would probably consider all options. I’m in Boston, can you tell me where you were looking?, so many places to consider, if you want to PM me I can probably give you recommendations that might be close to what you are considering.

I would have to be REALLY attached to a venue to wait a year! FI and I picked a season (fall) and will go with whatever works in that time frame for 2012. Thankfully we only have to deal with the church since the reception will be at home. If the church was booked, I’d take the next available or go to a neighboring church. I’d rather not wait any longer! We’ve already dated 6 years!
