Have you at least blocked rooms at your hotel?

For my situation, my TA was able to get super discounted rates; but she could only hold them for 2 weeks. So, I put the word out there and literally forced our BP and parents to place their deposits on the resort so they could get the better rate. Families and other friends weren't ready to do it; so I told them they could book whenever they want; but I can't guarantee their rates and the longer they wait - the more of a chance they are taking that the prices may escalate.
FI and I booked our flights back in October; because we had the $$ and the prices were great. Some of the BP booked theirs; others haven't.
Basically, we are leaving the rest up to our guests to make their reservations. We sent STD's with newsletters; are sending invites with cards incl travel information and we will send out a newsletter 2 months prior to the wedding.
If they book, then fabulous .. if not, then that's okay too! As long as FI and I are there (plus our BP and parents) .. then I am happy!

When did you set your RSVP at? Just a warning, you wont get all of your RSVPs back... and things change a lot up until the month before.
There is a website called Farecast.com that tells you when a good time to book is. It will send you email updates when fares go down which is nice, and a good one to pass along to guests.
If you are getting married at a resort and you know you are staying there, Id start booking that for sure. They could fill up around that time. Plus they usually give preference to room blocks. But just don't do a room block if you have to guarantee those rooms! I did that and people backed out so I am paying for empty rooms!
