    I have really been on top of the whole travel agent thing.. even going to Liberty Travel 2x just HOPING they'd have prices out. Well last week I just happened to go into the Liberty Travel in my mall and what came next... UGHHHH! The TA was brutally honest and said to switch my wedding date from the weekend of 2/14 because it's one of the most heavily traveled weekends all year. I knew it'd be bad but not this bad. She said if I want to make sure people will make it, I'd have to book their flights ASAP (within the week). Mind you I just recently sent out the last of my STDs and planning on starting my invites in 2-3 months or so. She said that the flights will be booking super early. I nearly had a panic attack sitting in front of her lol She gave me the numbers to all of the airlines but it still wouldn't guarantee anything. She also priced out that weekend and flights alone from NY/NJ were $1000. So......................

    I'm now getting married on February 28, 2009.. two weeks later. After talking to my WC she reassured me it was ok to switch. The other very important person was Jean-Marcus (my photog) and he was so great and understanding and lucky for me, he'll be down there already shooting a wedding the week before mine! My DJ (Carlos from Mannia) was also able to switch for me without a problem.

    Everything's now coming together. I feel relieved but for a few days I thought I was gonna have a heart attack lol

      I had to do the same thing, my original date was supposed to be 02/23, but the prices were still inflated for V-day, so we moved to a less expensive month altogether. I'da been married for 2 months already!

          I went back the next day to tell the TA we'd switch, and she priced out everything. It was actually $500 cheaper!

                So happy this worked out for you Jenny!! February 28th is going to be a fabulous day for the two of you! When you first mentioned it, I thought "gosh, that date is really meaningful to me, but I can't recall why..." I just realized it's my brother's birthday!!

                congrats on the svaings. Your guests will really appreciate that!
