We booked our reception venue last night! My SO has been super sweet about letting me do some pre-planning since we have talked about next October as a wedding date and after much research we had decided on a venue we both really liked and was super reasonable priced. The venue told me last month that there was no rush, that October was one of the last to book. Then I got an e-mail last week saying she had 5 other people request October dates within the previous week (which she said was really unusual) and gave us a week to decide if we wanted to book and what weekend we wanted. SO was a little shocked at first (I was too, and dissappointed to be honest. I didn’t think he would want to book it)but he made time with me to see the venue in person and he LOVED it even more than in pictures so….we booked it! Ahh! I am so nervous and excited that HE was the one that wanted to go for it – I told him it was perfectly fine to hold off if we really wanted that venue we could just wait and get married Spring of 2012. I knew he wanted to get married and loved me but this just makes it feel so much more official – even more than a ring would I think. Sorry for rambling…we want to wait until he proposes to tell family but I had to release some excitement so thanks Bees for reading. 🙂

Oh how fun! I know the feeling of not being able to say anything until its official! I’m in a similar boat that way! Looks like you have some more planning to do lol!
ETA: OMG that is amazing! I love the pic w/ the changing leaves! So pretty!

How exciting! You’re definitely not the first to have done a little pre-planning, lol. I bought my dress before we got engaged, and one of my girlfriends booked her venue before she got engaged (both with FI’s support and consent, lol). What a lovely venue! Don’t forget to share ring pics when it happens and enjoy the planning 🙂

so exciting, and that venue is gorgeous! one of my friends booked her venue (with her then-bf) before she got engaged. she knew it was coming, she knew where she wanted to get married, and she knew they booked up early. the proposal came a month or so later and it all worked out!

@MsAqua: It is beautiful! The hardwood floors remind me of the one’s in my dream venue. SO do tend to shock us everyone once in a while thankfully it was a good shock. Please keep us updated on anything new the ring sholdn’t be that far behind.

That venue is gorgeous. See a little pre-planning goes a long way. I’m wondering if I should start planning too.
