    I was so tempted to choose the “I just like voting…” 😛


    We just finished up the majority of our planning and we are about six months out. That seems to be the norm with people I know although there is always that couple that leaves it to the last minute (or plans a year in advance).

    We’ve been batting around ideas, but I’m just now at the point where I’m ready to buy the airline tickets.  We keep changing things though, so I’m kind of nervous about it!

    We just booked ours last week – about 5 months out!  I was starting to get anxious about it, probably should have gotten it together sooner!

    We booked our honeymoon before we started planning our wedding. The reason for this was because we originally wanted to do a destination wedding/honeymoon. But then after we decided to do a local wedding, we kept the original plan as our honeymoon only.

    I started researching a year before, then in February/March I noticed the originaly flight I had mentally booked us for was full so we quickly started seriously comparing prices from travel agencies and booked sometime in March- 9 months in advance. I do have to note that we are going during peak travel time…Christmas through New Years.

    Hah apparently I fail at this. I just booked ours last weekend and we’re about 20-something days out. But we had zero interest in a beach honeymoon, so I guess that helps! Vegas is cheap(ish) in December so that’s where we’re headed!

    We went on our honeymoon six months after the wedding. We planned it a few months out of that. We chose our location based off the best hotel deal we could get from his points earned as a consultant. We took the laid back approach to it.

    we booked late! i think we booked in november for a february wedding – the resort we wanted was booked solid but they were able to have a room released for us, we paid for it though! it happened to be valentines week so maybe that had something to do with it.

    We had already decided we wanted to go to Yellowstone, and the lodging there fills up VERY far in advance. So we actually made reservations immediately after we booked our venue/date. before we did anything else wedding-related. It was about a year before our wedding will be. But we still haven’t booked flights or figured out an exact itinerary.
