How far in advance did you start to plan?

We have huge problems with this as my Dad is in a job where he has to apply for his holiday leave 18 months in advance (September 2009 for Jan 2011). We have had a variety of advice:
1. we can book in the next couple of months with the travel agents going directly to the wholesalers but be aware that the schedules are very likely to change
2. Wait because one agent believes a lot of agents or hotels may disappear anyway because of the dodgy financial climate
3. not worry and book only three months before because one agent informed me that was all the time I needed.
We are inviting about 40 guests who are all mostly from the UK and they need to have a date.
The other issue is his Mum who has said she may not be able to afford St. Lucia so we are looking at a slightly more affordable island then heading somewhere kick butt beautiful by ourselves afterwards.
Has anyone else booked lightyears in advance?
Am I worrying unnecessarily?

We started our planning about 9 months in advance. We very spontaneously decided to just have a wedding, and picked our resort without doing much research...LOL. It was about time though - we were engaged for three years!!

Hope this helps!

I would start considering which destinations you want to consider and then once you have decided on where you want to go you can start talking to some different Travel Agents and see what they recommend.
