    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...

      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!
