    How far out did your guests book their flights and stay? When do you think would be the most economical? Is is best to go through a TA or have the guests find the best rates on their packages through Expedia, Orbitz, or Travelocity?

    i think for resorts, the further you book them the better rate you get unless their is a promotion...but even if there is a promo it will only be a little less than the cheapest rate when booked far in advance...the closer the resort fills to capacity, the higher the rate will be and the rate increase can be huge (a $350 for $600).

    but this conflicts with booking the lowest airfare...i think, with the exception of holiday weekends, that you will see good rates around 4 months prior to departure...sometimes even 2-3 weeks prior to departure but you have to have a real iron stomach to do this for your wedding (unless you are flying out of a LAX to cabo where there are a bunch of flights).

    hope this helps.
