So we went up to visit fiance’s family for Easter. His parents are being super generous and paying for our honeymoon. Since we’re pretty sure of the date and time of our wedding, we went ahead and booked it on Sunday since there was a great deal.
Then Monday night we booked our flights for the honeymoon.
And today I sent in the deposit for the restaurant where we’ll be having dinner after the ceremony.
I’ll be receiving the paperwork to book the ceremony venue within the next few days (they want to send it by mail???).
Just nervous since I’m booking everything backwards. lol.

@ranyamellon: No worries it’ll be fine just find your venue and all will be good and you can keep in mind that its easier when you inquire now since you can say you want it for X date.
If they dont have that day then DO NOT GO SEE THEM. That means venues, photographer/video anything. since you could end up disapointed.

@ranyamellon: As long as everything gets booked you should be okay! 🙂 Like the PP said, just don’t visit a vendor if they aren’t available for the date you have chosen!

@ranyamellon: don’t be worried. We booked out photographer first. Other last thing booked was our venue (well my hait appt was last- but venue was the last big thing). Everything will be fine.

Don’t worry. It will all come together. The first thing I did was book the minister (and I didn’t even have a venue yet!!). But, I figured, as long as there is a minister to marry us, then that’s all we really “need.” I ended up booking to venue a few weeks later, and after that everything fell into place. You booked the most relaxing thing first, the honeymoon/vacation! Congrats!
