The excitement of planning your wedding is like nothing else. You get to meet
with vendors, look at beautiful venues, and decide what sort of day you and your
fiancé want to have.
Of course, with all the excitement, it can be easy to overlook the need to book
early. If you’re planning a long engagement, you might have time to view all
the potential venues at a leisurely pace. However, if you’re planning on
getting married within a year or so of your engagement, you’ll need to get
things organized quickly.
You might not need to rush into booking everything, but you do need to keep
in mind that dates will go quickly, especially in peak months. You might have
more flexibility if you’re planning a weekday wedding, or in an off season,
but you’ll still need to make some decisions quickly.
Don’t feel that booking your venue and vendors is putting extra pressure on you,
though. Having these big parts set earlier can make the rest of the planning
much easier and more fun.
