    We booked our venue in July for our May wedding, which then got moved up to a February wedding. So originally 10 months in advance, but with the new wedding date it would've only been 7.

    We booked our August 2020 wedding in July 2019, so just a little over a year in advance.

    We booked almost 16 months in advance, they called us 6 months into it and stated they double booked us so we had to move the wedding up a month.

    We booked both venues in June 2019 for our October 2020 wedding. We knew even before we got engaged where we wanted to have it so we made sure to snap them both up while they both had the same weekends open

    18 months in advance. It's a very popular venue in my area so we had to book rather far out.

    We had saved our information with our venue at the 19 month mark knowing our date was going to be popular. 10-10-2020. We were not able to put the deposit down until the 12 month mark. At that time, she said that she had already had over a dozen inquiries for that date but she knew we were already down for that date and wouldn’t give it to anyone else.

    We booked our venue the day after we got engaged so 10 months! We toured the venue a month before we got engaged.

    We just booked our new venues (ceremony and reception are at different locations) within the last month or two.
