@@kmk2016 it might be resort-specific. My TA was told no rates until October.

Hmmm our TA said that she could get written quotes from all tour operators that operated in Canada for their entire resort listings... But it is WAY MORE time consuming for them and the tour operator since it's all done by hand rather than pulled online. Some TAs she admitted don't like to do it. We know our departure date but not our actual flight times yet as they are not scheduled. This is for a Canadian packages though.,, room only or flight only may be different.

We finally booked and based on my own experience I think that a year in advance is a safe option.  Our TA told us that for popular times of the year it's best to book a year or more in advance.  Our wedding is booked for September 24, 2015, and we booked with our travel agent on August 24, 2014.  My TA made me coordinate the wedding date with the resort and they said that my September 24, 2015 date was available.  Our TA said that the deposit is $250.00 per guest so my fiance and I put down $500.00 for both of us.

    • When it comes to your Wedding Clothes, it's pretty normal to be flooded by numerous choices that are available in the market like clothing style, pattern, fabric, and colors.  Absolutely, I liked this dress and I will never miss wearing this outfit for the wedding. Thank you for sharing this post.
    • Hi guys! Thank you for sharing the valuable information. Some students think, “How do I write my book review?” and are confused by this sort of task, and others are happy to do it and enjoy the writing process a lot. Such a difference in perception and attitudes is caused by the ambivalence of this task.
    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
