  • It looks like you're one of the only other 2016 bride to post. Yay us! I'm in January but just curiously popped over to the other 2016 threads...

  • I'm also June 2016!! Starting to book the big items but the venue I want won't sign contracts until 12 months before so that is putting a lot of other things on hold. Boo!

    714hbbride It's so weird how places do booking like that. One venue says people book 2 years ahead, another says a year in advanced....so odd

    YAY! So excited! We actually already booked and put our deposit down. I feel about ten times better now that we have that taken care of.

  • I'm also a June 2016 Bride!! Just wanted to say hi to everyone!  Can't wait to start the actual planning soon :)

  • Just booked our venue this weekend! Two weekends were already booked luckily not our date! Very exciting.. and very nervous.
  • I've only come across some photographers that wont book this early, but I've had plenty of venues that are already booked for our date!
  • I'm also getting married on June 2016.  I've started checking things out, but I haven't spoken to anyone yet.  Some people said to get them done as soon as possible, but others say that I still have a year and a half.  
  • @fieryredsam keep looking for photogtaphers. We found one who would do ours this early and included an engagement session that is only 3 months away.

  • Knottie50832941 There are advantages to both. You might be able to ave money by booking earlier as vendors tend to raise their price every year but some vendors won't book this far out.

  • I already have my venue, officiant, photographer, videographer, makeup artist and baker. Still missing a DJ. I am an uber planner. OCD it's horrible. Congratulations ladies.

  • Hi ladies! I'm June 2016, too. Guess that makes us all head-starters. Great minds. Congratulations to you all!

    Looking at bunch of places, and some of them don't book this early... but a lot actually say they do, and since we're on a budget, figured it can't hurt to look early. Hoping to have something locked down by March. June's such a busy bridal month, it's probably best to nab the best spots now. Especially for the perfect outdoor spot...

  • I thought at first that I was nuts for booking our ceremony and reception venues back in September '14.  I called our reception venue recently to inquire about hosting a baby shower there in one of its smaller rooms and found out that they had changed venue prices. They are honoring the prices that are listed in the contract we signed which is great because if I had waited to book it in '15, we definitely would be paying a lot more for the venue.

    So, if you think you're nuts for wanting to book, you may get a better deal by getting locked into cheaper prices should venues decide to change their price structure.

    I'm looking at a venue now that's willing to lock in their 2015 prices for me if I book with them this first half of the year. A lot of venues offer that, it's really nice. Saving me a bunch of money.

  • Booked our ceremony venue, but that's it. I'm planning long distance, but this summer I'll be living in the city where we're going to get married and I'll be able to get a lot done. That will put us within the 12 month mark AND I won't have too much huge stuff to do when I'm gone again.

  • We booked our venue yesterday so excited. Now I can start looking all the other vendors. Already told FH that he need's to start working more overtime lol.

  • I have been working like crazy to research & book vendors. Many of my vendors are booking for 2016! Plus, it's nice to be able to book your top choice of vendor without competing too much for dates. I felt like I have had enough time to enjoy looking at vendors without feeling overwhelmed.

  • Yeah, I'm dragging the fiance to visit our first choices in mid-February, and I'm almost terrified we'll be too late for our favorite dates. But he's been busy with a couple of major papers, trying to get them publish-worthy, and wasn't able to look at things in person for most of the past fall. My goal is to have our reservation by the end of March at the latest... 
  • We booked our reception venue and photographer! I've gotten a few things off of Facebook groups for the wedding. I definitely recommend searching for the groups in your area....I already have Chinese lanterns, centerpieces, candy buffet bowls. The groups start out as "recycle your wedding..." And the area you live.

  • @bhahn0911: Oooh. I hadn't thought to look for those. What a great idea!
