    Our wedding is April 1, 2009 and we started booking back in early May (pretty much a year in advance). We booked as soon as our TA was able to get the package prices from our carrier. With 10 deposits we were able to secure the rate and hold 50 spots for any of our guests that booked before a deadline. Is it a smaller resort that you are getting married at?

      I booked our room (me and fiance) right in the beginning (14 months before the wedding date!) because where I am staying, RPLA, Cancun, you have to have a hotel reservation before you get the wedding confirmation. That way, they know you have arrived the neccessary amount of time before the actual wedding (usually 2 or 3 days before the wedding). I guess the policy differs depending on the resort but I didn't think it was a big deal. The prices of the rooms have not changed a bit since I booked them and I don't have to put any money down. I made my reservations directly through the hotel rather than use a TA. I'll book our flight whenever I see a good deal!

        I booked the actual wedding before the hotel and flight lol the day the flights came out I booked ours and my aunt - the rest were on their own lol as long as we were there that was all I cared about.

          We booked really early because I found out that there were 2 other brides going on the same flight! Once I realized that one of them had booked with 24 guests, I got right on it! Our T.A. has really been great! We paid the deposit for 10 guests to hold the rate and now I am even sending out the invites early because she thinks the flight will fill up fast!
