I always say book the church first. They’re most likely to get full quickly. Then the reception venue – but only because I come from the school of “If it’s perfect but doesn’t have my date free then I’ll figure something out” thought.

i’d say book whichever location is the most important to you. if there is a church that you have your heart set on, book that first. if your heart is more set on a specific reception site, grab that first. i’m an october 2010 bride, too! i’m so excited for all the beautiful fall colors! good luck 🙂

I agree with littlemissmoo.  Churches also sometimes let you use the basement for the reception (depending on what you are looking for this may be a good idea.) Plus, you can also look for venues really close to the church you chose.

I talked to my rabbi and the venue at the same time to make sure they both had the same day open.

I would try and speak to both locations at the same time, (if you already have an idea which church / reception space,) and confirm availability before you book!

Yeah, I would email both at the same time–that way, you don’t have to sound sure or confirm anything over the phone yet until getting both responses!

I was more worried about the reception venue, though… I think I just thought we could do a ceremony wherever, but I wanted the reception to really have a party atmosphere! Luckily in all my emailing venues, one place had both! So maybe you’ll luck out, too 🙂
