    I was just wondering when everyone started booking their resorts. Im gettting married at the jellyfish july 18, 2014 and still havent decided which resort to pick. One agent has been rude and saying i have plenty of time and others are saying that I should book. What have you all been doing and when do you think i should book?? thanks!!!

        ours is in June 2014 and we have booked our resort. Mainly because our family and friends were asking for details so they could book!

        Book as early as possible! 

         

        Destination Wedding are VERY popular nowadays! 

         

        If you want the best of everything, book early! I booked 18 months out and I'm soooooooo happy I did.... It would have been awful if I hadn't.

        I started the process 14 months in advance and was fully confirmed 12 months early. It can take a lot of time to confirm the resort, especially if you have a room block. Are you using a travel agent?

        hi,

        I did the same as @kellisbaby. I started 14/15 months out and locked in my rate 12 months out. I think as early as you possibly can will be better for you.

        We booked ours 13 months in advanced. We got quotes from our TA for a few different resorts and kept our eyes on pricing before we decided.

          We booked through the ta and we done it 15months before. My mind was at ease once it was booked. Relaxed more
