Book early to avoid disappointment... you'd be surprised at how many people book early!!
Congrats on getting engaged. It's all ahead of you but great fun. Your so oganised which is great. Did you get your engagement ring. Thats the part i like. What type of ring did you get.....Did you start shopping for bms dresses or your own dress. Take your time picking out your wedding dress cause there are so many places to go and try on. Bring a friend with you when choosing your dress. It will be a fun day out.
Ah congrats so happy for you, im getting married in April 2010 and i have my church, hotel and band book about 2 months so its never to early, i suggest booking the hotel 1st then you can decide if you want to get married in your parish or one nearer the venue.
