I recently got engaged and we have been looking in to different items. I know venues are typically booked 1.5-2 years in advance. How on earth do you choose a wedding date? I want a fall rustic wedding so we were looking at Oct 2013 but we're afraid financially that would be too early then we were thinking March/April/October 2014 but It just seems so far away. Any opinions on how to chose a date or when exactly does one set a date? Im just worried about a few things including money, not getting the perfect venue, too far away, etc.
