I'd suggest just doing some reseach and sending out email alerts when you find a good deal.

So far it has worked out very well. Most of our guests have used expedia and orbitz for flights. Although my suggestion is if you or your guests find good flights from one airline on expedia, orbitz, travelocity, etc have them check that airlines site to see if the flights are the same price if so book directly w/ the airline. It will be much much easier if flights are cancelled etc so you can work w/ the airline and not have to deal w/ expedia or whoever. there are also some airlines who don't have contracts w/ expedia and such.
You also have some time, if I were you I'd wait 2 more months to book, unless you book w/ someone who will give you price guarantee. your flight dates are just now avail and if you wait a couple months they'll drop a little as they airlines know people are waiting for their dates to come avail to book.
Check out Airfare ? Cheap Airfares ? Cheap Airfare Deals they will show the good prices and you never know you just might find what you're looking for!

My mother and sister also used our TA because they are going on a tour of Europe after the wedding so they needed the TA to coordinate their flights.
The rest of our group booked on their own as they are only coming to France for the 1 wk and I informed them of deals online when I saw them. The best deal I was able to find was 2 months ago for $497 per person round trip including taxes and fees. No one jumped on that offer so the best deal anyone found was about $620 per person incl. taxes and fees. I think it is hit or miss what you end up finding online vs a TA.

We are receiving a special rate from the hotel so receiving a package rate was not an option. I have spoken to Air Jamaica and what they quoted me just doesn't seem like a deal or that it is worth using that option so I'm just wondering how I should address flight arrangements.
