Found the dream wedding venue!!!!

 We found our dream venue today but they kept telling us "oh you have plenty of time to put down your deposit..." which I know we are a little over a year and half away but still that's one less thing I have to worry about especially since I am in school and working all the time it seems. So it looks like we are going to have to wait a little longer before we can put our deposit down Frown... I have the dress already which I have had for quiet sometime... The only thing I am worried about is if it can be taken in enough with all the weight I have lost. We set the budget, we have a rough guest list still adding people...  What all do you ladies have on your to do list that are checked off?

Re: Found the dream wedding venue!!!!

  • I have the deposit down on the ceremony/reception venue (same place), bought my dress/veil, picked out BM dresses (2 of 3 have ordered already), have a rough guest list, have a photographer contracted already, have ceremony music contracted, and I think that's it for now. I'll start doing more once we hit the 1 year mark, flowers, etc. I'm thinking I will probably choose a DJ soon also, and get that signed. =) Howcome your venue won't let you put down a deposit yet? You'd think they would want their money.
  • Venue booked, photographer booked, dj booked, ceremony musicians tentatively booked (didn't give deposit yet), dress bought, bridesmaids dress picked out.  I don't understand why your venue doesn't want the deposit- weird.

    We pretty much just have to officially book our new venue and let our other vendors know of the new date (they won't book 2013 dates until 2012) and book the salon for my, my mom's, FI's mom's and my BMs hair. The rest is filler and for now I'm just coasting :-)

    ETA: As far as your dress goes, most dresses can be taken in up to 3 sizes- after that, you would be better off getting a new dress otherwise you'd compromise the original dress and lose a lot of details.

  • I am not 100% sure why they won't let us put our deposits down... I am thinkbg maybe because its too far out? We have decided after the holidays pass and everything goes back to normal that we are going to put our deposit down... Wow some of you ladies have been busy! I am going to a bridal show on the 8th so hopefully I can find some really good vendors there...

    Most venues book about 2 years out because they book fairly quickly. I'm surprised that they won't allow you to sign a contract yet because this is usually the prime time to book venues.
