When is the best time to book a venue? six months? Nine months? A year in advance? Honestly, the sooner the better in our opinion. One of the first things you want to accomplish after you get engaged is selecting your venue. All other wedding services can be selected after you have found the perfect place to say I Do! Once you have your venue booked and your date you can take a little more time to enjoy your engagement period, but everything else you do hinges on selecting a venue and a date so be sure to make this your number one priority!

The best time to book a venue would be between nine months to a year before your big day. This allows for more options when selecting a date for your wedding and it will give you more time to select your other wedding vendors without feeling rushed. Booking this far in advance allows you to be able to have multiple consultations with your wedding coordinator and the venue owner if necessary.

Don't have a particular day or season that you prefer to get married in and want to stay within your budget? Often times venues offer weddings on Sundays or Fridays for a discounted price compared to a Saturday wedding. This is a perfect option for couples who fall in love with a venue but would like to save as much money as possible to stay within budget.

Weddings that are in the months of January, February, March, July and December can often times be a little cheaper because they are not peak wedding season months. If you plan to have your wedding inside these are perfect months to book in order to save a little money.

Your perfect day is all about you and your fiancé and the love you have for one another. Choose a wedding venue that compliments your personalities and that falls within the perfect price range for your budget. Selecting a venue can be stressful but don't let that steal your wedding bliss. Begin looking for venues and enjoy the adventure of wedding planning. Happy Planning!
