    My TA has already received (last week) preliminary prices for group bookings for spring 2011. The only thing is though with those prices, even if we book now there is a chance that they might go up and we'd have to pay the difference. The actual prices should be up by May at the latest.

      Regarding my previous post, we are suppose to go meet with our TA this week to put down our deposit. In a way, I'm super excited to move things forward and make it "official". But at the same time, I'm worried it might be a little too early to ask our guests to book? I wonder how long they will have to put down their deposit before we lost the rooms the TA has reserved for us...

        Maybe your guests will see this as an opportunity to make it more affordable. The longer they have to pay on the trip, the less expensive it always seems. I actually decided against group booking with my TA for the simple fact that some people will want to stay longer than others, and everyone may want to fly out of here or the closest big city depending on their budget. And the TAs from this forum do price matching for any better price you can find, so I feel like I won't be letting guests down by not doing group bookings.

          I can't wait to be able to at least book my date with the resort. I think my TA said that they are not excepting booking until March. I hate waiting so long..:-(

            Have you contacted the WC at the resort? I was able to at least reserve my wedding date for $100, even though you cannot book a hotel stay that far in advance.

              I have also booked a date with the WC at my resort and haven't booked anything yet. They didn't even need a deposit, just a signed form!

                    Congrats to all you 2011 brides:) Im a 2011 bride aswell, and I can't wait for the big day! (I think im going nuts because I don't remember if I posted this before) LOL. Just getting together the STD's, im having them perforated with an rsvp side, that way whom ever replies that they are attending will receive a formal invite (save some money on this part). Has anyone purchased their dress already? Im going to a blow out sale to try my luck. Well ladies have a good night, and happy planning!! :)
