I am going to be getting engaged soon (I already picked out the ring), and will start my planning soon! I had a question, what comes first....the date or the venue? I have a general idea of when I want to get married, but I also know which venue I want too! So what happens if I go to the venue and they are booked on that date? Should I change the date? Or are you supposed to have already picked a date to tell friends and family before you start talking to venues?
