Booked My Place!

We decided on The Primavera in Stirling.
It's so nice to have it booked but I feel a little overwhelmed is this normal?

    Congrats!  That's a big check.  Yes its totally normal to feel overwhelmed.  Just take one thing at a time and you'll be fine.  We all feel stressed at different times throughout the process so don't worry!

    I feel like I have so many little questions but the wedding is so far away.
    Should I wait to ask my venue or do it now?

    just take each thing one at a time, map out a timeline of what you have left to book and work on each thing and you will see each check that comes off the board, is a sigh of relief and one step closer to the big day.

    Most of my co-workers got married there, we met with Steve, he seems stellar.  The food is supposed to be excellent, especially the extras on the cocktail hour and Viennese hour! Congrats!

    We did church, then venue, then photographer. I have my checklist in my bio if you want to see how we did it.

    after venue, church, photographer, and DJ/band (in that order) would probably be your best bet

    Congrats! That's a big check. We booked ours at around a 20 months before our wedding. We waited another couple months before we booked anything else and meanwhile changed our date up 3 months. I would hold off on asking tons of questions to the venue unless it's something you need to know right now such as if you need to book preferred vendors or if you're allowed to book whoever/whatever you want. It's exciting and can be a little overwhelming at times, but stay ahead of the game and enjoy the planning. :)

    Congrats!  The venue and church are the two most important things to have first.  You should also book your photographer, DJ/band, and videographer sooner rather than later so that someone you like isn't booked up before your date.  It's never too early to book.

    I've been to 2 weddings at the Primavera- was a BM in one and FI was a GM in both... food is AMAZING... i've had dreams about their wild mushroom ravioli! Congrats!

    Oh and Steve is awesome- he was an old friend of my bff's mom (same friend who got married there). He was totally on top of his game and even bustled my friend's dress!
