When to have a place booked???

March/April tend to be BUSY for tropical places....in terms of occupancy at hotels - that is their high season. You might not have flight prices available, or room rates, but you should be able to lock in your wedding package price.

I am a June 2011 bride and in the past few weeks, i have seen many dates for June being taken so If you know which resort you want to get married at, I would definitely get in contact with the WC there and see what you need to do to secure your date.
You may want to first check with your WC to see what the cancellation policy is. I know that at our resort, we can cancel up to 6 months before the wedding and still get our deposit back. That allows some time to still see what rates will be like. So it was easy for us to just send the deposit and secure our date knowing if for some reason the rates end up looking really high, we still have the option to pick a different resort.
Hope this helps Happy Planning!

So my point is...if you have a particular date or resort that you really want I would book quickly. If you are more flexible and would be ok with switching dates/times/locations, then you can probably wait a little bit, But it's nice to get it booked so your guests can start planning and saving as well

I find that you need to book the exact wedding date first because you can do pretty much anything, such as getting travel quotes and putting down deposits for things like photographers (good ones get booked up to and over 1 year in advance)...
