@NitaCircle:No date is cemented unless you have your venue! – That was one of the first things we did!

I agree!  You are at the mercy of the Venue you want when it comes to dates!  I thought I was ahead of the game when I started a year in advance (my date is August 3rd I started in July) but there were barely any dates left when I went to book the Venue I wanted.  Especially Saturdays.  Unless you’re having your wedding in a back yard or something!  I would definitely start figuring out where you want to have your Wedding and find out which dates they have open.

Good luck! Wink  I hope you get the date you want Smile

@NitaCircle: Venue first! We picked our date based on when the venue was available. We were more than a year out and the venue had limited dates left!!

After the venue we did caterer, photographer, and flowers/dj. Everything falls into place after that 🙂

Like the PPs said, venue comes first.  You are at their mercy and your date may change if you really want that venue.  Everything gets easier once you have a firm date (by booking your venue).   That was the biggest hurdles/roadblocks for me and Fiance.  Once we secured the venue (the date) booking other vendors has been so much easier!
