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!

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
