The average bride and groom book there wedding 10 months in advance. They do this to ensure the can get the date they want.

Many brides and grooms pick the same weekends in the summer. There are specific dates and weekends that are more popular than others such as the 3rd Saturday in June, July and August. There is also a trend of getting married on such dates as 11/11/11 just because the numbers are special. These dates are often booked at least a year if not two in advance. Most of the time a deposit is required to save the date. This is great and gives the bride and groom confidence that they have secured the needed facilities, caterer, photographer, and accommodations.

These months are known for their last minute disasters and not being able to find a caterer a month before you walk down the isle can end up costing you money, quality food and good service.
