Het all the main things booked wg video photographer bandetc the popular ones always booked up well in advance.

hi, congrates :o)ll :o)ll :o)ll Well if you know what you want then book away, June is popular time so to get the date you want, ld advise to see what dates are free. Just take a bit of time to make sure that your happy with the hotel, date etc.... some people rush in and end up changng or not being happy. Enjoy the planning, you have lots of time so there should be no panic. have fun!!! you will get lots of advise here. Congrates. :o)ll :o)ll :o)ll :o)ll :o)ll :o)ll :o)ll

Congratulations. I too would say to enjoy this time for a week or two, but you can still be thinking of what you'd like and be setting a date anyway. If you're having a weekend wedding, you will need to book the major things soon enough. No problem if you're having a week day wedding. I got engaged three weeks ago for a wedding august 2009 and I had church and hotel found within a week and all the different vendors etc said that there would be loads of availability for a Monday wedding, which is what we want. Certainly don't arrange anything until you are definitely sure you are happy with it, as you do have time. Enjoy all the preparations and going to wedding fairs if you do.
