How far in advance to start booking DW

Recommended Posts

We did at the 9 month mark and I still feel that was a bit too early. Some people are saying the longer you wait the cheaper the flights get I sappose that I didn't want to take the risk of the resort being booked tho. I guess the good thing is that I booked with all people I really really want to be there and then I any other amity o friends want to wait and book closer to the ate they can still do so just not be able to fly with us as a group.

Although they are booking for next april already they don't have anyone on staff to take wedding bookings yet. Since it'll be a small ceremony of about 10 people my fiance and I are considering waiting it out. Good to know prices will drop a little more in June. Then maybe another resort will sway our decision. How long before the wedding does the actual planning begin? I understand you want to book the date to make sure you get the date you want. But back and forth with the wedding planner? 6 months before the date? 3 month??

If your wedding guest list is only 10 people I would wait it out and book very last minute by yourselves online with sunwing or something.  Thats how I book our yearly trips, like 2 weeks before departure! just an idea especially for Cuba you would have no problems finding a last minute deal for 10 people :)

we reserved our wedding venue in July for our April 2013 wedding.  It sort of helps that Grand Cayman isn't a resort island (they only have one which we aren't staying at or getting married at) and has less wedding activity going on there, I think.
