Book the hotel and church/reg office really soon though, you'd be surprised how early some of them get booked!
Congratulalations and welcome Emerald Bride!! You will have gathered a mine of information from here by the time April 2011 comes around. Anyway just a quick word of warning. Try as much as you can to get a commitement of your hotel on prices for 2011. We have been stung badly by our hotel raising prices once we had contract signed. In this day and age every hotel should be delighted with your business. Get them to quote you as accurately as they can so you can compare like with like.
I cant see to get the hotels to commit to prices yet!
one hotel we went to was really nice and we were really impressed with it but it took the manager six weeks to get back to us with a price despite me ringing twice! that put us off that hotel which was the county arms in birr. he then emailed after six weeks saying there would be a 10% increase for 2010 and he would give it to us at that price. 10% seems like alot!
I know our hotel wouldn't have commited on prices when we booked, and the price increases there in January every year.
priest won't think you are mad at all!
We booked our hotel 18 months in advance, and we couldn't get a weekend date at all. We would have had to wait 3 years for a Fri/Saturday wedding
congratulations emeraldbride,it's great when you set the date, good luck with all the planning
Congratulations - you must be delighted having a date picked out.
Its best to get the main things sorted as early as possible so I certainly wouldn't t hink the priest would think your mad at all.
Best of luck with all the planning.
yeah so happy we have finally decided on the date. better to wait and save so we can enjoy it. will be getting our first home next year so its so exciting! im just finshing a masters after six years in college, feel like my life is just beginning now
This time will fly by, enjoy every minute of it
