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!

    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
