If a prospective client wants us to put a date on hold, we will put it on a tentative hold which gives them the first right of refusal should anyone else want to book on that date. We will contact the client with the hold letting them know if someone else is enquiring about that date and will give them the first chance to book or release their hold. For large events like weddings and receptions, we recommend reserving six months to one year out. For smaller events we can book as early as two weeks out.
