  • Wedding: November 1999

@HappilyEverAfter54: When we got engaged, I started calling around in July 2010 for a September/October 2011 wedding. It was all booked up or the church would be open but the venue wouldn’t. We reevaluated, and just figured March was not a popular month and worked out for my spring break, so we went with it.

If you’re committed to June, call around as much as possible and see what’s available or what ‘bump’ lists you can get on if someone cancels. Also check Friday evenings or Sunday afternoons. And if you just can’t swing June, check out less popular months (Nov-April) if you’re open to it.

2012 is going to be a huge wedding year. I am worried that we may not get an official for the ceremony but it is still waaaayyy to early to call and book something yet.

I booked my wedding for June of this year over a year in advance and available dates where already limited. The original florist I wanted was booked and my photographer had limited availability. I am getting married in a popular wedding area so that probably explains everything but honestly I don’t think its ever too early to start booking if you know what you want.

@MrsPinkPeony: They don’t take bookings this early. I think you have to wait until 6 months out or something.

I haven’t run into this *yet*, but I’m planning on it, so I’m trying to book everything NOW. I’ve got a venue, DJ and photog. Working on the florist, officiant and videog.

Hope I’m not missing anyone…

June 2012 is deff popular!

@sceeder: That sucks but at the same time you know it won’t be booked for your date!

This is why when we started looking at venues we didn’t set a date. We said “we’d like May or June” and then they told us what was available. No one knows your date yet, did you ask them if theyre available on other weekends in June?

@DesireeAnne: It is kind of nutso but I know here, which isn’t a popular wedding area by any means there are already “bride wars” going on with venues, etc. I know for a lot of cultures 2012 is super lucky/significant. So maybe that is it?

@sceeder: Bride Wars was a good movie.  I just find it interesting because I know a lot of people who want to jump the gun and get married this year instead of waiting.  I guess maybe 2012 could have a certain meaning to people, but I’m still in shock.  Good luck to all you ladies.  I guess I should start calling and seeing what venues say about booking way in advance.

  • Wedding: September 2012

We booked our venue before we even got engaged. We booked in Sept. of 10 and didn’t get engaged until Nov. of 10. The venue was basically booked through Oct. of 11 and she was getting 2012 inquires. I’m actually trying to have all the big vendors booked by this June.
