Not getting married for a few years but want to get married in october what is the wait like and how far in advance do you need to book? Thanks xx
I guess that depends on your venue, we booked just over a year in advance and had a choice of a few dates. Some other stuff gets booked up early too though so I’d say a year in advance is a good idea. We’ve got everything in place and can now sit back and relax for 6 months before picking things up again x
I think it depends on the venue you'd like. Perhaps try calling around a few to check first.
Check around first, I got married in October and had no problem with the date I wanted
We are getting married October 2019 and booked up just over 2 years in advance and we couldn't get the date we wanted so had to push it back one week.
As the others have said it depends on your venue(s), it is probably worth starting to look around now :) xxx
I booked in Dec 15 for October this year! It has flown round! Plenty of time to organise stuff. And with booking so early got the choice of my suppliers!!
Depends on the venue. We booked two years in advance and only had 1 possible date in May/June or September. And it's not a weekend. They only had that free due to someone changing their date
December 2nd 2017 we booked for 24 November 2018....
It really depends on the venue 🙂 book what you really love but wait on certain things as you’ll change your mind... a lot 🙂 haha x
I booked January this year for October 2019
The wedding venue I've chosen is taking bookings for 2021 already ️ So I would say as soon as you're ready.
We booked just under 2 years on advance, however we booked for a Saturday in mid August so needed to in order to secure our date and when we enquired all but 2 of the venues were booked for that date xx
Hey as you have plenty of time off you don't know what you want make sure you spend time looking around and don't just book the 1st place you find.. If you are 100% sure where you want to get married book it as soon as can xx
With us we have booked two years in advance to get everything sorted without stress, but there were plenty of dates available with the venue for next year. The only problem is the external help's calendar- photographer and car businesses get booked up super early! Xx
We booked our venue 2 and 1/2 years in advance, we needed as much time possible to know how much to save - we get married in November and we are bang on budget so I’m eternally grateful we were quick off the mark! I guess if all depends on things like money as well as the particular venue and how popular it is. Best thing to do is to have a look around, if there are any that catch your eye that you love, sit down and try and work out roughly how much it will cost and how much you need to save ect. If money isn’t an issue though, just book when you’re ready and have found the one! X
I would suggest get everything booked like venue, photographer catering as soon as you can just for the peace of mind rather than waiting and then facing disappointment if something you had your heart set on is not available.
We booked 18months in advance for our October wedding and even then dates available were limited!
I booked our ceremony 5 months in advance. Was a little worrying I had left it so late but I had come out of hospital after a heart attack so that's my reason. Would say a year in advance is a good idea
I always wanted an autumn wedding so when we got engaged in 2016 I booked the wedding for October 2017, every venue I looked at had at least one Saturday available (I wasn’t fussed on what weekend) just needed to coordinate the date with my church for the ceremony, then I mainly just booked my photographer and videographer as I know these get booked up 1-2 years in advance. Everything else I booked around 6 months prior to the wedding. Hope this helps!
Im getting married this october and booked march 2017, they only had our saturday left when we asked so were lucky with the date
We booked two years in advance and they helped us arrange a more flexible payment plan.
I booked mine 18 months in advance and only by luck got the date I wanted because someone else had dropped their reservation.
Thankyou all x
I booked my 2020 wedding in November 2017. I was early then, but now when talking to suppliers, 2020 isn't far now, and they are getting busier. So I would say if you can, start early. Best prices if you can lock in that years prices.
Depends on the venue. If you would like a bit of time to plan then ask them if you can book early. I wanted to book 2 years in advance so i didn't have to rush 😊
