My venue was filling up 2 years in advance! Thank goodness we planned on a long engagement.

Give them a call if they won’t answer email. We are in the midst of booking our August 2017 and our fave venues are already booked through October 2017!! While I am not a traditional person in most ways, it is never too early to book a venue – it really does take a giant weight off of your mind, and it also dictates a lot of other stuff! Like colors, outfit choices, flowers, dj etc etc. Good luck!

whoami:  I don’t know that there’s “etiquette” here other than don’t act crazy. But a year in advance is the usual time people have already booked their venue, so 13 months in advance is perfectly normal to inquire about availability. 

I’d call/email (alternate between the two) once a week. After the fourth try I’d give up, honestly, because if they can’t get back to you when you are offering them money, they aren’t going to get back to you once you’ve already given it.

I’m used to VERY prompt emails back just with my job, and when we booked our venue, it took/takes her a week to reply back. It drives me crazy actually haha, but I have to realize that a) it’s wedding season and is SUPER BUSY for them, and b) not everyone has their phone on them 24/7 answering emails.

So yes, I’d say a week!
