I am going to start working on a boarding pass for STD, and work into a passport for the formal. When can I start to send this out for a May 2013 wedding. Also, since it destination wedding, what do you all think about getting married on a Thursday? Is that too weird? I am thinking Thursday so I can relax for the rest of the weekend and not be a nervous wreak!
Yeah, hate to say it, but I would talk to another travel agent. I also think you can get your dates far earlier than that too. We are going to a small place, in a low travel season, and we can still book about 14 months in advance.
Just because prices aren't out for dates on travel sites like expedia, doesn't mean travel agents don't get prices earlier.
As far as Thursday, we are getting married on a Thursday, too. We are getting there on a Saturday, so I do not like having such a long break before we say I DO. But oh well! Whatever works, right?

I've had such a hard time getting together all the addresses and people our fams want to invite. My fam is out of town for a month so here I am hunting down their friends to get their address lol. Luckily we are only inviting family and a few family friends so they all pretty much know about it already.
So you ladies are already starting to buy things you want for the wedding? My family told me to wait and that I was rushing things in the begining, phew now I dont feel so bad. I wanted to get personalized parasols and a personalized aisle runner I know I need to do that a few months ahead of time so maybe that would be good to get out of the way ..omgosh the more I read the more anxiety I am having lol! ... I guess I should start ordering some of the things I know I want and get to investigating some florists and hairstylists.
No, don't panic! I am starting to get things because I wanted to start doing things now, and there is only so much I can do ahead of time. Part of the reason we are having a long engagement is so we can spread out the spending a little
Plus, I like wedding stuff, and love doing it all for as long as possible...
