Because I don't want to pester my friends (lucky you, oh internet denizens!), my BF proposed on Friday! Wahoo!
Time to start the wedding planning. I was unaware, but apparently in the NJ area where we are located, 14 months prior to your ideal time frame is already late to the game, and many venues we're interested in are already booked through October/November of 2014. What a pain!
Anyone have any good tips on how to conduct the first meeting with reception venues? I've read a few articles and have a few planning materials that cover the basics, but would love to hear any suggestions or cautionary tales so we make the best of our time with them.
