My name is Kellie... and I thought I would finally introduce myself. I'm just newly engaged, and I've been reading quite a few of the threads and I can't believe all the good advice and useful information everyone posts... I can feel myself somewhat relaxing already...
We're thinking of a Cabo or Mayan wedding in October 2008. I've spoken to a few travel agents and most look at me like I'm crazy to think so far in advance. They say I can't book anything until August - and that seems too late!! I want to give my guests as much time as possible to plan and save....

I just started my planning not too long ago - and I am getting married in June 2007. So you definitely have plenty of time - but there are many brides on here getting married in 2008, but I don't know if they're gone so far as to book anything yet. I'm sure they'll help you! Feel free to ask any questions you have!

Regardless, it looks like we'll just have to guestimate a date for our wedding... and have the cocktail party a few weeks after...

You are never too early to start planning. I was a "lurker" on this site for a while before we set a date. Once the time came to set one I had the whole thing planned! The FI loved it!

The only thing I wouldn't do is buy a dress for awhile. I think there's been a lot of people who bought their dress early and then got sick of it by the time the wedding came along! That is unless you find THE dress... that's another story entirely!

I agree with Tammi, most travel agents don't understand the importance of early notification. True, many hotels can't give rates but they can give you estimates, confirm dates, and give you there list of services. By being ahead of the game you have the pick of dates, catering managers are often more flexible, and you can SAVE to pay for the big day.
Both locations you have selected have plenty of options. Cabo has become so popular, Mayan area may be a better bargain.
Good luck to you!
P.S. Instead of a save the date, mail out a we're engaged card stating your DW intentions. This will allow potential guests to get in the mind frame that they will have to save for a trip.
