Does anyone one know what it means to put a particular date at a venue on hold? Does it mean that nobody else can book that date until you release it (or until your time expires)? How long does it usually last? Do you typically have to pay anything for that?
Some of the venues I like are getting booked, so I’m starting to freak out a bit 🙂

I guess it varies according to the venue. I would call the venue you’re interested in and ask.

Most of the venues i looked at in NYC did complimentary holds that lasted from 3 days to 2 weeks. It didn’t cost anything and I actually had a hold on 3 different venues before I made my final decision and went to contract.
When you have a hold, in theory no one else can book it until you release the hold or it expires. Basically you have first dibs on a date. But the venue can call you and say if you don’t pay a deposit by XYZ date we will give it to the other bride.
