Are you emailing or calling? If it’s a vendor you’re really interested in, I’d make sure you’re doing both. However, if they’re really difficult to get a hold of, I would probably be wary of doing business with them. You don’t want to have trouble getting a hold of them when your wedding is only a few weeks away!

Don’t worry about comparing yourself to other people. Your wedding is about you and your FI! And you still have plenty of time to put together an absolutely beautiful day.

Do you have your guest list together? It sounds like you do, but not sure.

If you do, I’d first (and as soon as possible) try to nail down and get a contract in writing for your ceremony and reception venues. As you know, those book up! And really, if you can’t get them to commit to you, I wouldn’t risk trusting them with your wedding day. Maybe look for another option?

From there, it really depends on your priorities, but for many, the photographer (and videographer if you want one) is often the next priority.Then of course there’s music and food and flowers and whatnot to think of, along with apparel for you, your FI, the bridal party (if you have one) and anyone else who is involved in the wedding!

@excited1:  Did you end up booking the venue?

I’ve been frustrated too. We are having a small wedding and it seemed like everything was done for big weddings – big money. My dream venue would never happen, because their minimum was like 6k, so we compromised. We started researching nearby towns for great venues and everything worked out. I feel like I’m behind too, however, everything seems to line up as it is meant to be, you know. I started planning a year ago and only six months later I was able to find a venue.

One thing I learnt is, if they don’t want my business, I don’t want theirs. I have a right to pick here.

Good luck!
