Picking venue for 2025 Wedding

Alana, on January 23, 2023 at 8:54 AM Posted in Wedding Reception 0 9
Hi guys I recently just got engaged! Our wedding will be in 2025. I already have the date. Would it be crazy to pick my venue now? I’ve already looked at a couple and fell in love with one! What are your thoughts? I like to be prepared LOL

    Well you technically don't have a date until the venue is secured, I say go for it!

    If you and your future spouse found a venue that you both love, I don't think it's too crazy to book the venue two years in advance! Check with the venue on how far in advance they are willing to book out - some only book within a year, but others are willing to go a couple years out. Another thing you could do is ask the venue if they can put a soft hold on your date for you until time gets a little closer. That way, your date is still being held for you at the venue, but you aren't locked in to a contract yet. Congratulations on your engagement!

    My date is available and they do allow us to lock in the venue for the pricing of this year! The soft hold definitely is a good idea and I will look into it thanks!!

    I booked my venue over 2 years in advance. It saved a lot of money because I got 2020 pricing, so I say go for it!

    I would say go for it. However, you might want to consider wedding insurance since it's so far out.

    If they're willing to book you this far out then I say go for it. Venues book up FAST, so having that secured would definitely give you some peace of mind. It'll also give you time to save up for the costs, figure out what vendors you'll need vs what's provided by the venue, and give you a better picture of what you're day will look like (both aesthetically and logistically).

    I would only book that far in advance if the cancellation policy is very reasonable (e.g., doesn't require too much non-refundable money up front, clients able to downsize or cancel without too much trouble or expense close to the actual date). A LOT can change (in your lives, your tastes, your wedding plans, the world) in 2.5 years. Not to mention even the venue itself can change with no notice to you. I've seen a lot of posts here about sites being sold to new owners, doing renovations that change the whole look of the place, great coordinators leaving to be replaced by mediocre ones, or chefs leaving and the food quality deteriorating... I guess it all just comes down to the contract language whether this is a safe bet or not.

    Not crazy at all! especially post covid wedding boom- things book up so far in advance. I booked my venue in September 2021 and getting married October 2023

    Congratulations on your engagement and no it's not to early because from I've been hearing venues are getting booked so quickly now. And this will be one big important thing checked off and then go on to the other fun things. Happy planning
