When Should You Book the Venue for Your Wedding?

Once you become engaged and the celebratory period with family and friends has ended, it’s time to get down to business and begin planning your wedding. At this point, most couples will like want to begin by finding a dress, compiling their guest list and testing wedding cake flavors. However, finding the perfect venue for your wedding or wedding reception should be at the top of your wedding planning list.

It is likely that there are MANY different venues in your area that would make the perfect setting for your wedding; however, it is likely that you aren’t the only couple interested in utilizing these locations. For this reason, starting your search early and touring potential venues to determine if they meet your individual needs should be done as soon as possible. Here are a few reasons you should book your wedding venue anywhere between 9 months and 1 year from your chosen wedding date:

Limited Date Availability

It’s not uncommon for wedding venues to be booked as far as two years in advance. For this reason, nailing down the perfect venue for your wedding quickly is crucial for ensuring everything goes as planned on your special day. However, it is important to note that the season and month that you choose may have more or less of an impact on how available your wedding venue may be.

Vendor Complications

In most instances, you won’t be able to hire the various services needed for your wedding until you have solidified a date and venue. This can drastically set back hiring your wedding photographer, DJ or caterers if you wait until the last minute. Don’t add stress to your wedding planning by waiting until the last minute to get everything in order.

Décor Implications

Catering your wedding theme to meet the venue that you book can make the wedding planning process much smoother. For instance, if the venue for your wedding fits with your chosen theme, decorating and creating matching invites will be much easier. Take the time to find a venue that fits the theme of your wedding for an easier planning experience.
