Over a Thousand???

Recommended Posts

OK, so we are still 11 months out and because of that, some airlines are just now releasing fares for near our date. The latest search I did only came up with one carrier having fares listed for late April of next year and that was United....over a thousand dollars per person!!!!

 

Someone please tell me that's likely to come down after more carriers start booking. I know, I know..the fuel prices are driving up tickets, but if this is how its going to be, I feel like NO ONE is going to come to our wedding! With accomodations, at that type of airfare price, they will be paying nearly 3K per couple just to come to our ceremony.

 

I'm shell shocked...smile105.gif

Wow, that sounds like way too much.

 

Have you tried working with a travel agent? Maybe they can help you.

I can't imagine it will stay that high. it's still a market & if tickets are too much people just won't fly to cancun so they have to keep prices somewhat reasonable.

It is still early. When prices first started coming out for Nov 08, they were high, but we just waited for a bit before booking. Even since we booked they have come down slightly, although with the fuel prices, they will probably start going up again. We went through a TA, so our cost is the airfare and AI hotel.

It is still early when the prices were first posted they were pretty high, I do not remember that high but I am sure they will come down (at least I hope)

I agree that 1000 is way too much. I am not sure what to say the effects of rising fuel prices will have on the tickets, but I would not bet on anything coming down...are you workign with a TA? maybe they would have some insight...

That's why I won't even look at airfare for April. I simply don't want to know! The price will come down once they have some competitors selling tickets. I am also naively believing that this whole fuel situation will improve before our wedding too. If prices remain that high, then Cancun is in big trouble with no tourists!

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
