Booking a Venue
The first step in planning a wedding is booking a venue. The wedding date depends on when the venue has space available.
We checked out the Cypress Hotel in Cupertino. Our original date of October 18 was taken, but they were free one week later, on October 25. We liked the place. We didn't want to spend a lot of time looking at a bunch of different places. My bride is in the bridal business, so she knows a good place when she sees it.
So, today I signed the contract and paid the deposit. Now we have an official wedding date of October 25, 2007.
