We are planning to get married in March of 2015. I've spoken with a few travel agents and have gotten mixed reviews of when we should request flight/hotel package quotes from WestJet / Air Canada / Transat / Sunwing ect in order to get the best prices. Some say to book ASAP and others say to wait until about 10-11 months out when the flight schedule comes out.
I'd really like to plan ahead and book early, but if it ends up costing less to wait a little longer in order to save ourselves and our guests some money I think it would be worth the wait. We expect about 35 guests, so I wan't to arrange a group rather then try to have everyone book on their own.
Brides who have already booked their group - when did you get quotes and put your deposit down with the travel agent? Did you book the actually wedding ceremony with the resort before you booked the travel?
