are you using a travel agent or are you booking direct through the resort? My TA (contract) only requires a $100.00 deposit per person w/final payment due by 2/1/12 for my April 2012 wedding. We paid for the initial deposit but as people book that cost gets deducted from our final payment. I am not sure if you've thought about a travel agent, but that might be a better option if you are really focused on that promotion. I will say it is a great promotion as we used it at FSIL wedding last October, and they carried it over to this year, but it is not guaranteed. Also there is a minimum stay requirement for that promotion of 3 nights so if that is a concern as well, I would look into it.
