When would you ladies ask about the church? I am looking at 10.12.2013. My Fiance and I are going to put the deposit down next week on the Recption hall. Im nervus to ask about the Church, becasue we dont go all the time. I work Everyother weekend, He always works sundays, and I have a 17 month old son. We are both voili firefighters and sometimes I take classes on weekends, I try to go maybe once a month now, since he asked me to marry me. I was thinking maybe asking in April, cuz at that time we will be 18 months out. Should I just get it over with and ask the church or waite a little longer?

Get it BEFORE you get the reception hall, unless you are ok with not having the church be available on the day you have already paid for your reception hall!!

@red_rose: I completely agree! We booked our church first

I would highly recommend to talk to the church first before booking your reception. We contacted our church first because we wanted to make sure that we reserved the for our wedding. Booking the church was the first thing off from our list. When we wanted to book our reception venue we hit a snag because all the Saturdays for November where booked. Luckly, we started early on our booking of our ceremony and reception venue and we decided to celebrate the wedding a day before the original date. Our church was able to accomodate us without any problems.
