Airfare prices lowering booked guest count!
Posted 22 July 2008 - 08:41 AM
Any other brides dealing with the same thing? Any tips and hints, or insights from travel agents about what prices might do in the next few weeks or months?

Go and check out Kayak.com You can watch fare prices from EVERY airline to your destination. It has been really helpful and we still watch since we have some stragglers and only 3 1/2 months left. Hope this helps.

I just had envisioned this huge fun party but now I am thinking it isnt going to as big. It just ends up being weird because some friends booked thinking others were going to, but then the others may not. Might end up being family with a few random friends. I guess thats okay too.

I pretty much made my bridal party buy their tickets in January. They are so happy that they listened to me. My aunt waited until last month and it cost her $1000 for two tickets from San Diego to PV. Craziness!

I found November tickets tonight and booked for 2 of my cousins. The tickets were $420 on American Airlines. That's not as low as what some guests got who were on the ball in March, but it's pretty damn good after that $700 scare.
So, for anyone with guests w/o a ticket yet, go check TODAY! Plus don't forget to search for Orbitz and Cheapticket coupon codes for air+hotel packages. I have all my guests use the $75 off coupon if they book on those sites.
(Btw, I was booking around 10:30pm tonight and a few times when I was searching I noticed the prices go down so maybe systems were updating prices?? Maybe the falling oil prices are finally having an impact...)

We've been monitoring the prices very close but not much luck lately. The good news is that gas prices are dropping - hopefully it give us all a little break. I'll post any deals I find.
It's been very hard not to get too down from everyone's complaining about costs. At this point there's nothing we can do about it...
