    A) What month are you getting married
    B) How much are your guests paying for their hotel stay (please include how many nights this includes, or just a per night price would be great!)

    I'm having such a hard time trying to decide between locations!!! And now I'm thinking of doing it in December/January instead of June/July. These decisions are already driving me nuts!

    Thanks in advance for your responses!!!!!

          Weather is icky here during that time ~ it should be wonderful in Cancun.

          Don't know about the room pricing yet. My TA is working on the room block from the hotel.

          :)

            I don't remember the exact price, I tried to find the email, but I must have deleted it. My mother is staying 5 nights & I think it was around 800 give or take a little (I also think she might have got oceanfront) My brothers may have been a little less, for 5 nights, I think around 650

            sorry I'm not much help.

            we also had a few friends book through orbitz and expedia. I know one couple is paying 1500 for 4 nights and airfare, so based on the cost of flights from here, I would say they're paying about 450 pp

            finding a location SUCKS! I wanted to rip my hair out, its so much better when you're done with it!

              Actually that did help, thanks!

              And yes it is VERY FRUSTRATING trying to find a location out of the MILLION or so out there. I swear, I'm going to have gray hair by my 25th birthday if I'm not careful...either that, or I'll be bald

                Jaime-
                I'm a week before Jilly (Oct. 12). All of my guests that have booked so far have used expedia, travelocity, orbitz, etc. With airfare from Chicago or Milwaukee inlcuded, they are paying about $650-$720 per person for 4 days, 3 nights (Thursday-Sunday). Other guests are staying longer, so more $, but you get the idea.

                  Susan, those are awesome prices. I was quoted around $1,200 using a TA. Hmmm....maybe I need to reconsider Dreams again!

                    Most of our friends are pretty travel saavy and comfortable with booking online. We kept a close eye on the flights and prices (and still do). Using an internet-based "agency" is such a game...prices can change drastically in a matter of minutes. It's up and down every day...so when you see something good you have to jump on it. Different flights and more seats open up all the time...so you really have to stay on it, but I think if you're diligent, it pays off. Not everyone is comfortable booking this way... so it's not for everyone, but prices are pretty impossible to beat if you know how to play the game :) Living so close to a major airport (Chicago) that has several daily flights to Cancun also helps.

                      Unfortunately most of my FH's family has not even been out of Texas. My family and my FH and I travel quite a bit. I wouldn't trust them to keep an eye out for deals. I guess it's just easier to use a TA sometimes.
