Pittsburgh bride-to-be looking for advice on booking the competitive Heinz Chapel. My fiance and I are planning to book our reception venue (has a built-in ceremony back-up location) for October 2016. We really would like to get Heinz for the ceremony but aren't willing to risk being unable to book our reception venue (Soldiers and Sailors). We are both Pitt alumni, my fiance has gotten his BS, MS, and soon-to-be PhD from Pitt and I my BS. Also, he works for Pitt and I work for UPMC so we VERY MUCH meet the requirements to get a slot!
Currently planning to have at least 5 people calling on the 1st of October, 2 from a university-based phone line at the least. Any advice on what time to start calling?! I know October is the most sought after month but someone has to get a slot! Why not me?
Any advice you have is welcomed and appreciated!
