Klhurley21 ... I am looking to get married in the outer banks in late September2014, but every house I look into the rental company has told me I cannot put an advance hold on the home less than a year in advance. You say you have already booked for October, may I ask who you booked through? I would like to get the squared away ASAP and definitely do not want to wait if I dont have to. Thanks so much for any information you have!
