Fiance and I are leaving in 2 weeks to stay at the resort that we want to have our wedding at in Captiva, Florida. I know the resort only books weddings one year out, and I am starting to get scared that they won’t have any dates left that we want. My mother just told me of a chunk of next Sept. that she cannot take off during, which limits our possibilities because we wanted Sept. 2012…I am hoping that we can book our wedding less than a year from now since we have been engaged for 6 months and I’m tired of waiting. The package we want only allows weddings to be during the week, but I’m still freaking out. What if there are no dates left?!?!?! Are destination weddings really popular right now and places are booking up quickly, or is there still a chance? When I emailed the venue, the lady didn’t give me a definate yes or no as to what months were still open.
I guess I’m just having an internal freak out moment. Thanks for letting me vent.

You might be able to get something closer to what you want if you book a weekday. I know its not ideal but chances are it will cost less and be just as enjoyable since people have to travel regardless.

@MASPA: I looked and the package we want only allows weekday weddings, so this might be a good thing. I’m just having an internal freakout. I guess cause we are getting close to booking and going down there, I’m suddenly thinking, WHAT WILL WE DO IF IT IS FULL!!! Ugh i hope this is not an indication of how the rest of wedding planning will be.

Well, if you want those summer months, my guess is they will not be full. The weather is very spotty and hit or miss during the summer months because it is the rainy season in Florida. My guess is that they would not be full during that time. I hope it will all work out! If not, maybe you could visit another place or two while you are down there just in case. Maybe you should look into a few as backups to check out. Good luck to you!

I doubt that every single day in Sept 2012 will be taken already… since you want to do a weekday, that opens up a LOT of possible dates for you!
