it really depends on the area and the luck of draw.

we booked our florist/photog in february for our september wedding

and we also booked our cake lady in march

my photog was my #1 choice and we were grateful they weren’t booked yet.

up here there is an “off-season” from nov-march where vendors aren’t as busy nor as expensive so it would work… but in houston, the weather might not play a big role in “off-season” i would just do some more research and find out what’s available.

also, are you ready to make financial committments at this time?

I was only engaged 4 1/2 months and probably didn’t go up to where our wedding was and talk to vendors till like 3 1/2 months, no one seemed to have a problem, it was in NJ.

We started planning our wedding 7 months before… and only started picking out our vendors and other things about 5-6 months before (right now)… the #1 photog I wanted wasn’t an option, and reception venue choices were limited, but we’ve had no issues at all. Maybe in Houston there is a higher demand, but it has not been a problem for us.

We found every vendor but the venue by attending a bridal expo. We had two dates available at the venue- 2 months out or 8 months out. That is why we chose the expo- to talk to as many possibilities as possible- to see if 2 months was possible.

We got married in early March and had no problem finding vendors. I highly recommend the bridal expo to feel out the availability of vendors.

Our florist had no problem with our timeline- we signed the contract 3 weeks out.

We booked our photographer about a year out. I would suggest looking ASAP, so that you know who you will want to contact. Luckily, March is a down time for weddings, so you may luck out and get someone you like without much hassle. BUT, if you can, I would suggest getting your venue/photog sorted out sooner than 6-7 months if possible. I know my photog tends to be 100% booked about 10 months out. Florists can service multiple weddings on any given date, so you have more date flexibility there…
