So we’ve been looking at wedding venues and apparently some places are already booked for the date we had been looking at. So now we are thinking about moving it back a few months but either way I’m scared to actually pick a date and put money down! Not because I have any doubts about the wedding I’m just afraid that something will happen and that day won’t work. Like there’s something going on I haven’t considered or something important will get changed (like the the bar exam will be a month later than it has been every other year). Especially since it’s still a year and a half away. Has anyone else gone through this??

I wouldn’t settle on a date until you’ve picked your venue. The venue is really the only big thing that you have to worry about, date-wise. Keep your mind open, have a period of a month or two or three months that you’re willing to get married in, and ask close family and friends when they absolutely would not be able to make it during that period. Things will come up. Some people won’t be able to make it. But that’s not important. Just see when the venue you like is free, and make sure it isn’t a bad day for you or the people closest to you. Then pick it. If it’s such a big day that they won’t be able to make it to your wedding, they would know about it in advance. Good luck!

I foolishly set up a date with the church and then discovered it was booked at all my favorite venues so I had to push the date back by a week. I had also book the dj with the first date so I had to resign that contract. I also agree with picking the venue first and then going from there. Maybe you only have to got forward or backward a week or two?

Dates are pretty tentative until you have a venue booked. I second what @Unicorn: said. Pick your favorite coupe of months, like: April, May, June. Then go through and mark out dates that you can’t do (family birthdays, holidays, conflicts) and go to your choice venues with that. :)Good luck.
