Hi Ladies,

 

Okay so we just confirmation that our wedding has been booked for October 7,2009. I am sooo excited! Now my question is how soon did you & your guests book your rooms? I spoke with my travel agent & he said to wait till about January 2009 as flights are not even available. I'm just a little worried that if I wait till then they might book up. What do you think I should do?

 

Thanks!

I booked as soon as the info was available! Our trip is Oct 19-26, 2009, and everything was available for us....which travel agent are you using? I would book ASAP!

You already booked? Hmmm. Did you just book your room or your guests too? And if you don't mind me asking how much did you need to put down to hold the rooms?

I too would book the rooms ASAP. If you book now, you won't have to worry about availability later on, which is very comforting!!! Also, this gives your guests plenty of time to budget accordingly!

 

The only downside is that if you book now & the rates go down, you'll have paid the higher rate. That happened to us but luckily we were able to get our hotel to honor the lower rates.

Also, you won't have the luxury of having one package with air & hotel together.

I put down 10 deposits and that guaranteed the rate for our entire group from now until whenever. That was a package for airfare and hotel to Cabo. Our deposits were $150 each, and guests are quickly putting their deposits down too! So info is definitely available...well, at least through Sunquest, to Cabo. Not sure where you guys are having your wedding though...maybe there aren't any flights there yet. I would get a second opinion though. I contacted 6 or so travel agents before I settled on the one I ended up using.

We booked our hotel+air package with sunquest 14months before our wedding to secure the rates for 24 guests. I'm super happy we did now, because with the price of fuel going up the prices have gone up too, but we're locked into our price. You have to check with your TA, one of the issues with us was that Sunquest only had a certain amount of rooms at the resort that we wanted, so we didn't want to wait and risk there not being enough for our family. They won't be able to guarantee you the exact flight time or date, but they'll be locked into a price, and the tentative dates. Its a bit nerve wracking (at least for me) not knowing when I'll be flying out exactly but oh well.
