When Is The Best Time To Resurive?!

Recommended Posts

I am chomping at the bit to get the date settled for the wedding. Jan 8th, 2016 -- because it's so far in advance, I have to hurry up and wait. Which is my least favoriate thing to do in the whole world!!!


I noticed on the site where I want to have my wedding, the 2015/2016 rates are out. Should I just bite the bullet and put in for the date now, or wait until it's closer?


The wedding planner from the Apple Vacations (who works closely with the resort) said I should wait until Spring 2015, but to me that seem SO far out. And I have already commited to the location and date through a cute "save the date" post card for the invites.


SO! what has been your experience with this?!

Im in Canada, but my TA said that it's best to book as early as possible when blocking a group of rooms for a wedding. It allows your guests plenty of time to save $$ and make plans to attend, and you can lock in early booking discounts most resorts offer.


My TA also said that if the price drops between the time we sign the contract, and the date assigned for final payments, they will make a one time adjustment for everyone in the party- so it seemed smart. If it's a popular resort for weddings I wouldn't wait! Some wont allow multiple weddings in one day- so if you have your heart set on a specific date- book it as soon as the hotel will allow!!!


Im February 2016... so I totally understand!!

I'd book as early as you can.  It took a long time to confirm our wedding date with the resort.  Plus, the more notice you can give your guests, the better!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
