It’s really odd that vendors are canceling meetings and refusing to meet with you. I’m sure there are a lot of companies that would LOVE your business, so I’d keep looking. I’m sorry you’ve had a bad experience so far. If you want to sit down and discuss this with your fiance to see if it is truly something he still wants, then maybe you should do that as well.

Good luck!

you can book a venue early, but most other vendors will make you wait until the wedding is closer.  Just wait for a year and start booking again.  Booking too early could also lead to trouble, because you have a lot of time between now and your wedding to change your mind about what you want.

@MrsTVLover: agreed.

really, you only need to worry about the venue and the photographer that early out. keep looking and don’t overwhelm yourself!

Maybe get back in touch with them and ask for an informational meeting. They might be resistant to locking in a date before their rates are fixed for 2013.

I totally get the desire to get everything done, but don’t worry. you have time. 🙂

We started planning 2 years in advance and haven’t run into that for a Kansas City Wedding, no one really batted an eye some of the vendors were already busy so I was happy we started early. If you are having a lot of struggles with vendors that travel easily (photographers/videographers…) try looking in other relatively close metro, a lot of the photogs in KC have links to both cities and don’t always charge travel fees…  I did find that making a personal connection with the vendors was helpful in having them entertain the idea of booking so far in advance.
