    I don't think it's at all too early - I think its best to sort out the venue/church stuff as soon as poss, then you know what you're working towards. I'm getting married 3rd Dec 2011 and I've booked it all already. I'm not planning on buying anything else for a while yet though!

    I do not think there is any problem with getting the serious stuff looked into PRONTO!

    The earlier you see them the better chance you can book the day you want! I say go look!

    Always best to look early, get deposits n early because when you find the one you want & wait too long you'll be gutted if it goes!

    Its also useful to find out what you both like..... I liked places like zoos and boats, Pidge liked more traditional venues- we went for a small hotel.

    I was looking at venues before we'd even set a date - now THAT is organised lol
    Get all your big stuff done sooner rather than later - but be warned, because it's more than 6 months away h2b probably won't understand why you're looking hehe

    I'd love Warwick Castle.........take him to see it, you never know, he might feel differently ;)

    YAY!! You might just get your Princess wedding yet :D
    What you'll find is that men have a really fixed idea in their head about things like venues, if you want one he's doesn't think he's fond of then drag him round and sell the idea - give him a big picture of it's potential :)

    We're not getting married til Summer 2012 and have already viewed 2 venues, going to view the 3rd soon (which is the one I LOVE)

    It's never too early, the earlier you look, the better idea of your budget you'll get - that's what's helping us work out ours anyway lol

    Like Shellay said, if the places are popular it's better to book early

    hey Steffie! it's definitely not too early to book as we've booked for September 2012 and as other girls have been saying it is amazing how things book up so quick! a good thing about it too which we found is that our venue is guaranteeing us next years prices so you never know you could get a deal like that too :) x

    It's never too early. We're getting married June 2012 and a lot of the wedding is already planned, just not booked up. I look up ideas that I like and then h2b chooses from those x

    We decided to get married, by the end of the next day the venue was booked! Admittedly we had less than a year to the day of the wedding so we had to get a move on! GO FOR IT! x

    We are getting married today in two years' time and have been looking at venues already. Unfortunately, everywhere we like is so expensive. So it is worth starting early to get the best choice :o)

    never too early... we have decided on our venue, n luckily for us they dont ask for a certain amount as a deposit, cos they only really do work functions :o) so we can pay it off when we have extra money eyc.. so in 6months we'll have our venue booked n pid off :o)

    Never too early, we got engaged at the start of April and 3 weeks after we had our venue booked and deposit paid. If you are after a Sat wedding in the summer months they get snaped up fast. We only had 5 Sats to choose from :-) xx
