      Our travel agent gave us the same spiel. Wait until August or September when the new vacation books come out and proper pricing is in effect. What someone should do is start a thread for all the destination weddings this year and then basically put the time of year and the prices their guests are paying. Hopefully we can use that as a rough estimate for 2010 weddings.

        I'm getting anxious and I would like to know a close estimate because that will help me decide on a resort for sure. I think the '09 price thread would be a great idea

          My TA got me pricing for Dreams Tulum, Azul, and one more back in Feb. We are paying 2400 for 10 day stay in a Dreams Junior Suite.. Hope that helps.. But I think the prices mayhave increased

          Who is your travel agent (I am hunting for a good one right now) and what month are you planning to get married?

          I am in the same boat as everyone here. The pricing for my resorts in 2009 were $1300-$1500 (Gran Porto Real) and $1800-$2000 (Royal Playa Del Carmen). When the 2010 pricing came out this month I found the prices to be $500-$700 more than 2009.

          I'd like to wait until August but my wedding is in January so I would like to get a head start on booking.

            I am getting married in January 2010. I am anxious to book, but the prices are outrageous. My TA said just to sit back and relax prices will come down and 2010 specials will come out. I am getting married at Dreams Cancun and went last year for 5 days and it was around 850. I booked this hotel cause the price was right. I also think because what is going on in Mexico the prices should drestically reduce. I check everyday. The prices have to come down...

We've been watching prices on all the travel websites and we've never seen them that high, the highest was around $1700 for this year. So we're now looking at different resorts, probably around Playa Del Carmen, like the Gran Porto Real or the Iberostar Tucan. How far in advance should we be booking? Are we getting these high rates because of how far in advance we are trying to book. We do want to give everyone as much notice as possible, though. Thanks
              Remember- Easter is April 4 next year. Spring break will be within those weeks before and after, so EVERYthing will be outrageously inflated. An agent last year suggested that we book at least 2 weeks past Easter, preferably more, and I think that really helps. I wanted to do it before it got SERIOUSLY hot, but outside of the tourist high season during the winter months.

              She also said that to estimate pricing, just use current year booking price, and add 10% to get a ball park idea.

                  I checked the travel websites today too (sunwing, sunquest ect)....nothing has shifted. I looked at Westjet vacations and they don't have 2010 dates out yet. Fingers crossed the $$ will go down....

                    Our prices are in!! I am finally able to view prices from AppleVacations for the week of January 5-12. I contacted our TA and she priced us an awesome price, actually $400 cheaper than the last time we checked. She also mentioned that if we buy insurance we will get money back if the prices go down which is a major incentive for us.
