    I had my heart set on getting married in March 2010, but a friend reminded me of Spring Break. In this case, not only are airfares increased but the aircrafts and airports are crowded. Does anyone know for sure if Springbreak is the entire month of March? Does if bleed over to April?

      I think it goes into April as well - colleges all have different spring breaks unfortunately

        Gina- You may want to consider somewhere like Tulum - it is kind of "off the beaten path" in terms of it's about an hour or so away from Cancun's airport, and therefore kind of discourages highschool/college kids. If you want all the clubbing and night life though, stay near Cancun! Just a thought!

            Most of the higher end resorts don't allow spring breakers, so at least you won't have to deal with it at the resort.

                Our wedding is 26th March 2010. It falls over Easter and spring break. Travel from the UK over Easter is a huuge money making machine. We are paying an absolute fortune for this time of year. We stupidly set our hearts on the date (10 yrs to the day we met) and the location before doing our homework on dates, prices etc. See the 2010 brides thread for more ranting from me about this if you're interested!

                I would recommend anyone to change their arrangements to avoid these times, more so to avoid inflated price increases rather than the spring breakers.

                Best of luck with your decision.

                  TA Jill stole the words out of my mouth.... and I`d like to second the motion to stay away from Cancun!

                    I took this into account as well, however, still decided to have an April wedding- 3rd Friday. I hope I will not run into this problem, but as TA Jill mentioned the higher end resorts discourage spring breakers from booking rooms at that time of year.

                      My friend who is a photographer told us that as well. Aim for the 4-5 star resorts and you should be ok. Most college kids can't afford those places anyways (I never could, anyhow!)
