“Hi X,

I recently found your website and am interested in more information about your packages. I am getting married on July 3, 2011 at Y venue in Z. I look forward to hearing from you.

Regards,

reneeb407″

That way if they’re booked for that date they’ll tell you straight up and if not then they know that you’re interested. Short and sweet and to the point. I hope that helps! 🙂

Here’s what I wrote:

Hello My name is ____. My fiance and I are looking to see if you are available on our wedding date and what your prices are for a standard wedding package. We will be getting married on (insert date) at (insert venue). Please let me know if you need anymore information from me. Look forward to your response. Sincerely, me

Short and to the point. They will usually send you an attachment of their prices.

I wrote essentially what littlemissmoo and TinyTina: wrote, but added in something along the lines “I really enjoyed looking through your blog/archives and think your style would work well for our wedding.” Not sure why I felt like I had to compliment them, but I did.

Do you have a budget? I found it really useful to include my budget in the email, and ask if they could work within that.
