    When I spoke to her yesterday she told me that when I book my trip if the room rates go down then I will get the lower rates, but with airfare once you book your locked in at that price, so she said I may want to consider waiting bc most likely they will drop. I also remember pricing the trip last year around this time and the airfare was around 289 roundtrip. I just checked expedia this morning and it 393.00 right now. Also since August is part of DR's hurricane season waiting closer to the trip might make the tickets lower depending on how the season is looking. I probably will book my flight no later than May though.

      Try Cheap Flights, Hotels, Airline Tickets, Cheap Tickets, Travel Deals - KAYAK - Compare Hundreds of Travel Sites At Once for airfares. They use all the low price search engines and seem to come up with the best prices - at least for our wedding.

            Time is flying by, and I can't wait to marry my best friend!

            We booked our cruise and ceremony/reception package (photography included) back in June.
            DJ is booked.
            We sent out our STD's.
            Website is up.
            We have 21 people booked for the cruise.
            We did a registry with Carnival and one with Bed, Bath & Beyond.
            I bought my dress.
            I bought my bridesmaid's gifts.
            My colors are white, black and red. My dress is white with a red sash and my girls are wearing black dresses. I chose the red because I'm wearing my late grandmother's diamond & ruby jewelry as my "something old."

            What's left:
            Invitations
            Wedding Bands
            Shoes
            Veil
            Favors
            OOT bags
            Flowers
            Finding a hairstylist and makeup artist who will come to my house very early in the morning

                      Well after finally deciding on our venue we found our August date was already booked. So I guess I'm now a July bride. Good luck ladies with all your planning!
