I used to be on the November boards, but we’ve push our wedding back 3 weeks, because a Saturday in November was $115 per head, and a Sunday in December is only $80!
Tomorrow afternoon we are going to check out our ideal venue. I’ve already seen it, but Mr. Roux hasn’t. If he likes it too then we will be putting our deposit down and officially have a date!
The place we are looking at is so beautiful, its in the Dandenong Ranges just north of my home city of Melbourne. Its got beautiful old trees, and ferns, and a gorgeous stained glass chapel.
So December 2012 bees, do you have you venue? Tell me about it!

Yes- I booked mine about 4 days ago. Lovely place- I made separate three viewing appointments before I officially handed them the $1000 deposit (had to give myself time to sleep on it between each viewing just to make sure I didn’t grow any questions).
Mine is going to cost about $75/person and almost everything is included (except for of course flowers, DJ, photographer and the like).

@armychica06: We just booked our venue yesterday! So exciting, they gave us all this stuff to go through, and a bottle of champagne to celebrate. 🙂 We are very lucky our venue price includes floral centrepieces, and the DJ. We are meeting with a photographer tomorrow. I love his style, but I’m 99% sure he is too expensive. He wants $3500 for 6 hours work, which is all our photography and videography budget. I’m also checking out another next week who is much more affordable, but has a slightly less impressive portfolio. Its so hard to choose!

I booked my ceremony venue last month. I did tons of research before I decided. We wanted to reserve a time, since in Vegas it will fill up.

I’m booking my venue next week!! I’m really exctited I finally found a place were we can having the whole wedding and it won’t involve flipping a room. Its actually a golf course club house, but is so lovely with great big windows to show off the rolling hopefully snowy landscape.

We already booked our venue back in May, so about a year and a half before the actual wedding. It is the banquet hall of a really nice restaurant by the sea. We are having a small and intimate wedding with only about 60 guests, so hoping to do more of a fine dining thing instead of a buffet.

@Sugar Plum Fairy: That sounds great! I’d love to have a small wedding, but with our huge families that would never happen.
