I'm wanting to travel to Russia in June 2016. I know I cannot apply for a visa until 90 days before but can I get the support document now or do I need my flight and hotel information booked for this as well?

If you have hotel reservation, You can ask hotel to make voucher now.
I work in hotel, usually tourists ask to send voucher about 1-2 month before check-in date.
But don't worry, making voucher takes 1-2 working days (of course it depends on hotel)
So You should think about it next year:)
