    Okay so, weve decided that a destination wedding would be perfect, but where does a person start? How far in advance do you normally have to book stuff, What do you book first? The date of the wedding at the hotel or the vacation? How do you book it? Ive spoken with a couple travel agents but the prices they have been quoting me for travel only are ridiculous! We were thinking Nov-Dec 2012 but Ive read a couple threads and its taken some people two years to book theyre, is this too short notice? Group rates?! The travel agents who have given us group rate quotes have been about 400$ more than booking through Travelocity or Expedia. RESORTS?! How do you pick a resort, we have been looking into Now Jade Riviera Cancun, but they would like a 800$ deposit to garauntee your wedding date but when I request available dates, they request my credit card number first, is that normal? I need help
