Offbeatwifey2be:  If you want to book a book a venue in Vancouver, I suggest you get on it. Many venues are booked up for most of next year.

It’s really up to you.  You need to consider if you’re willing to work around the weather?  If you live in Vancouver (In live in BC) can you deal with the rain?  Outside wedding and photo’s are most likely out.  Is an inside wedding okay with you?  Size of the wedding and how formal the it is.  A wedding can take place anytime of year.  In Canada you will save $$$ having a wedding in fall or winter.  If you want a summer wedding get on looking for a venue! I’m getting married July 5th.  We got the venue we wanted but I waited a bit to long and we didn’t get our choice of dates.

Why not call the venue that you are interested in and see what they have available? In my area, nice venues book up at least 1 year in advance. So even trying to plan for next summer may be difficult because you haven’t given yourself much lead time.

A friend planned her date this way. She knew she was getting married at a certain church. Since the area is notorious for parking problems, she wanted her guests to be able to park once and be done with that battle for the entire day. This meant that she had to choose a reception venue within walking distance of the church. One venue stood head and shoulders above the rest, so she asked what the venue’s availability was. They had literally 1 Saturday available for the next 15 months. So she could choose to have a 6 month engagement and get that final Saturday, or she could choose to wait at least 15 months to get married. Waiting that long didn’t sound like fun to her, so she booked that Saturday and that’s how they got their wedding date.
