So I recently got engaged, and for personal reasons, must get married this year. I've been frantically venue shopping...ideal date (later in year which would give me more time to plan) or venue that I love?
the venue that i LOVE (great hotel where I can host everything) only has availability 7/28/12.
the venue that I Like (banquet hall where I'll have to shuttle people back and forth from hotel and feel would be inconvenience) has availability on ideal date: 9/22/11.
Ladies, it is 2/7/12 TODAY. and I haven't booked anything yet! I have names for vendors from friends that I would love to use so could start calling right away i guess, but I'm freaking out that 7/28/12 is so close, and am thinking I'll have to do the other venue which I don't love as much but the date is ideal.
Do you know others in this situtaiton or are in this yourself? Anyone have any advice? I guess i'm wondering how long really will it take to plan everything if i start now? Anything is appreciated at this point.
