Depending on where you are in the country or world, it shouldn’t be a big deal if you start early.  We started planning 21 months in advance with literally only one date available for similar reasons as yours, parents insistance on dates, our schooling/work, moving, starting new job, and conference travel schedules.  Everything worked out just fine.

You’ve so so much time – to research, plan, and most of all SAVE! Start investigating venues now, then you can be sure you’ve looked at all good options before you actually book anything. And don’t go buying a dress! There are loads of two-or three- dress brides hanging around here!

Unless of course you want to buy two or three dresses. Don’t wanna spoil the fun!

Well, it depends. Plenty of people have a hard and fast date, while others have a lot of flexibility (I did, I was able to change my date to get the venue I wanted).

So lots of people are able to work with a lack of flexibility on the date. I think what your concern should be is having your own heart broken if you find a venue or vendor of your dreams who is already booked.

I would recommend figuring out what your top priorities are, making those reservations as soon as you have some down payment cash. So if having the best cake baker around is what you really want, go make it happen now. I would put booking a venue on the top of your list. Looking this early may also give you negotiating power: times are tough, if you can give them money now, they might give you a small discount.

I’m a worry wart and with no flexibility, I’d be hammering out venues like yesterday.LOL

I say look at venues and start before the new year deciding which one you like. Just be be sure you can get that specific date.

But then, I’m a worry wart.LOL

I don’t think you have too much of a problem just having this date.  I would, however, start looking at venues to make sure that you can get the specific date though.

I too would start looking at venues. If you can swing it once you find one can you go ahead and put down your deposits, etc? That gives you plenty of time to plan out everything exactly how you want it.
