You should contact the company soon. I think 6-8 months out is around the time where you’d start reserving these, so now would be a good time to finalize the contract details.

You will probably be on the earlier end of people approaching them, but there’s nothing wrong with that!

You don’t have to know the exact number at the time of booking them.  You essentially pay a deposit to reserve their services on that date.  I guessing they’ll need the actual number in the weeks leading up to you wedding day.  It’s better to book them early if you can because they might fill up for you date.

Get them now! As someone said you reserve them now and give an exact number later.

You don’t have to know an exact number until the week or two before hand. 

It like the caterer, you deposit to reserve their services, but you don’t tell them the numbers until just before the date.

Also, I am not sure how you will possibly know 4 months before the date who exactly is coming, since you won’t even be sending out invitation until 6-8 weeks before the event.

@PacificMrs:  Just be aware that standard inviting is 6-8 weeks before the event, and that sending it early will only be a headache for you.  It is not polite to ask your guests to commit to your event so far in advance, when people don’t know their schedules and finances to be able to attend.
