    I've always found Cheaptickets and Orbitz to have the best deals going. I looked into your time frame and found them to be about $1831 pp which is not that much cheaper, but cheaper nonetheless.

      Thank you so much everyone!! I haven't been feeling well at all so I wasn't able to check your responses yesterday, but I will definately look around more.

      I think the only person that is having a fit is my aunt. She can be quite the b**** sometimes!! It just pisses me off because I asked from day one what price range she would be ok with and never got a response. Now the price range went from $1200-$1400 (when we were planning to go to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic) to $1500-$1600 now in RM. She is the type of person that would go to Florida for a week and spend $1000 on her trip but throws a fit about these prices...

      I just decided that we will go where WE want to go! I know that no matter where we go, our parents and siblings will be there, and to be honest, that is really all who matters to me. If she can't afford $200 more, then I guess we will be bringing her back some fabulous pictures!! :)

      Thanks so much for all of your suggestions everyone!! You are all so great and I am so thankful I found this forum! I wouldn't be able to do this without all of your support and ideas :)

      i wouldn't fret yet...secrets capri is one of the more expensive resorts but you have to realize, may is pretty far away and apple is one of the few suppliers that have their rates in that early...they do charter air alot of times but i prefer not to use charter air so most may 2008 air rates are not even out yet...the ones that are are not any "deals'.

      another thing, apple is NOT my cheapest supplier so i really only use them in a pinch.

        Well, I just read through this thread for the first time Amy & I was sooooooo glad to come to this post of yours. You two need to get married where YOU want to, and don't let anyone tell you otherwise. It doesn't matter how much it costs (within reason!) but those who are supposed to be there and are the most important will be there- they will find a way. Those that complain about the price can , just as you said, look forward to seeing some nice pictures. Just because you're having a DW doesn't mean everyone has to come!

        Do you have a TA? I would highly suggest securing one to do your room block.. you will save sooo much money...

          Thanks fo the advice Tammy, I will keep that in mind!! I may be cotacting you about your TA services soon also!

          Sarah, thanks for reminding me of that!! Aaron's mom keeps saying that but it is hard not to worry about others. I am definately getting better though! With all of this "freaking out" about the Secrets prices, I got some time to look at some other resorts also. I really like the El Dorado Royale and El Dorado Seaside Suites, as well as The Royal PDC, Aventura Spa Palace and Paradisus Riviera Cancun... too many choices!! If anyone has any thoughts/comments about any of these places, my ears are open!!

            I TOTALLY agree with Glenda! Similar thing happened with me. The rates were higher than what I wanted my guests to pay. But, we went ahead anyway and so far about half of the people who have booked reserved 3 nights, the other half reserved 6. If they want to be there, they will find a way!

              This is the hardest part of planning a dw, you will get through it and then be able to move on to more fun stuff.
