I started hearing people were booked a few months ago but mine is a little earlier in 2012.  I also was just told by a DJ at a bridal show that I was super slacking on booking a DJ this past weekend and that everyone was getting booked already. He just annoyed me though.

This is what I’ve been afraid of!  People kept asking why I was already booking things, and I kept saying that I didn’t want to have to settle for something other than my top choice just because it was “too far in advance to book”. 

I haven’t had anyone not have availability yet, but I’m finally getting to the point where vendors don’t look at me cross-eyed anymore.  Heh.  Thankfully we’ve got the vendors we really wanted booked, so I’m not too terribly worried about what we have left to do.

@JaneDomani:I haven’t heard “no” yet, but when I called the florist that I want to book today, she mentioned she couldn’t believe how many 2012 brides have started calling to book.  It makes a 2012 bride a little nervous; luckily though, the florist is the last major vendor that I need to book.  Church, reception venue, photobooth, dj and photographer are already booked.

Sorry to hear that your first choice DJ was already booked 🙁  Boo!

I ran into this.  I didn’t really have a choice but to look about a year in advance (I live out of country), and I started with venues.  Very few had any Saturdays left, which was ok with me.  I wanted a Friday anyway (all my friends are teachers.  So they can come no problem and we can enjoy the discount).

I then hired a wedding planner (who was available for the day, yah!) and I’m going from there.  I’m hoping that being on a Friday will give me some leeway with finding vendors available.
