    We are getting married on July 19, 2011 and we just booked a few weeks ago - I'm not sure about some of our guests since people are coming from all over the place and a lot are using their own travel agents.  We booked sooner than I had planned because there are less flights from Canada and didn't want to have the price jump due to low availability.  I know some guests are waiting to book, which is stressing me out a little, but I posted a notice on our website as well that it is recommended to book travel within the next month or so in order to avoid everything booking up and having to pay a ridiculous price.

      I'm a Bridal party member for a wedding in June and I just booked ours this morning.  Alot of money! I was too afraid the resort would be sold out or Air would skyrocket.  Still paid a mint though.

        My wedding is is November 2011.

        We secured a group rate as well for our guests.  Right now we have 14 people confirmed (you have to guarantee 10 people within so many days of getting the group rate price) and then my WC needs a guest list 3 months before our wedding date - so August. 

        So I'm planning on sending my invitations out in May and asking for an RSVP of July something...


        Everyone that wants to book with our group rate has to book by September in any case anyways.

        Plus we are doing a private reception that I paid for a specific amount of people which is the case for our ceremony as well - you have to pay x number of dollars for every person over the amount I paid for.  So I want to avoid last minute bookings as well and being surprised with a new number of people - so as long as they RSVP by July then they can book however they want :)
