Is it crazy to book the venue before you have the ring? My SO and I have picked out a ring, but I have no idea when he is going to propose except that its going to be sometime this summer because I currently live in another state (college). We are very sure we are going to get married and we have a small time frame to have the ceremony before I start law school in the fall 0f 2014. I have my heart said on 2 venues, but when I called both are already almost completely booked for 2014. Both women told me that they have only 2 different openings during my time frame. However do you think its crazy to book when I am not “officially” engage yet?

I would only do it with full knowledge and approval of your Boyfriend or Best Friend. go see them together, pick a date together, sign contracts together.

I don’t think it’s unreasonable to book things now, especially if you have your heart set on a certain venue. But, you and your SO need sit down, finalize the timeline, and plan things together.

We booked our venue before we were “officially” engaged for the same reason. I said “Are we absolutely sure we are doing this?!?!?!” He said Yep, and I told him I’d kill him if I put down the deposit and we ended up changing our minds/date. Let him know the cost to you if you book it. Just have that serious conversation and go for it if you really want that venue.
