@ meggyo – we had our tasting on Saturday. We missed their big one they do in the spring so they had a smaller one with just three other groups so we joined them. We set up an appointment to go over more details (food choices, ect.) in July but our coordinator suggested even getting together this month.

i don’t think 5 months out is too long to book at all!  I would say we had all our major vendors booked by then actually.  5 months out is a really nice time to be at, I would say – not too much pressure yet, but close enough so that it’s a reality (can you tell I’m starting to feel the one month mark looming? oy!)

You are smart to try and get the cake out of the way, especially since we are approaching the busy wedding season. Interesting comment. 5 months fly by!

I think it depends a lot on your culture/your vendors culture. I am planning a Jewish/American wedding. For most things, I have been on an American timeline, i.e. planning things months and months in advance. However, we are having a Kosher caterer, and it has been pulling teeth for her to do ANYTHING so far. My planner is really worried that she is going to drop the ball, but I had to explain to her. In orthodox communities, brides and grooms that haven’t even MET each other yet will be getting married before I will. So my caterer works on a completely different timeline. It makes sense that she can’t even think about our wedding yet, she’s planning one for this weekend that she was just hired for last week!

So, point is, consider your vendors’ point of view. It has nothing to do with YOU! Your wedding IS coming up fast, but your vendor might work in a different world with completely different timelines.
