    UGH is right!
    I have currently sent out my save the dates with a short little letter explaining the costs and what not.
    We're having our wedding July 8 2011, gran bahia principe punta cana.
    Pricing for ours seems to be about the same every year. not to worried. between 1300 and 1500.

      Current packages and prices for 2011 tend to be estimates and are on the higher side.

        Got my first quote from Air Canada $1680 tax. included for Grand Riviera Princess. Travel agent is sure it will go down in couple of months. In addition - 16th guest is free of charge.

          Just popped into Maritime Travel today....she's going to work on getting us some quotes, said it'll probably be a couple days before she gets back to us.....and assured us that it's not too early to be looking! I'll let you ladies know what they come back with!

              Barbiegirl, the quote I got was from Maritime Travel. It takes a while to get those quotes.
              By the way, did you get your dress?

                I still have to narrow down my choices...but I can't wait to find out prices. I noticed Air Canada Vacations has pricing up for December 2010 and they're not bad!

                  I did check itravel2000.com and selloffvacations and there are some really good deals and some really EXPENSIVE packages, too! Wow. It's all so much info to take in. It seems Punta Cana is the cheapest so I think we're going to go with that. The prices are so deceiving with our killer taxes. $800 suddenly becomes several hundred more!

                  Another question (i'm full of them!), did you ladies decide on a date before looking at prices or after? Originally I was thinking Apr/May. However, it seems March is actually the cheapest month for PC at least, this year. I'm surprised as I would've though spring break time is one of the highest priced.
                  My FI and I went in to our TA with a "general timeframe" but really were looking at what week/month was cheapest. We were looking anywhere from end of Jan till mid April. Found that the end of Jan was the cheapest (our TA found anyway).
                  I don' t know what TA you're using but keep in mind if you find a lower package at selloffvacations or itravel200 take it to your TA maybe they can match it.
                  That's what we did with ours! saved us about $100 a person.
                  Good luck with the planning!

                    It must be v frustrating for all of you who are getting married in the first quarter of 2011 as over here in the UK from October 09 we could book our trip; ie flights and hotel for Jan 2011. They were even available all the way through to 30 April 2011. So the hotels must know their prices; I feel for you all. We went through as TA though so I dont know if this makes a difference.

                      Hi Margret! Ok, I won't start freaking out when she doesn't get back to us in the next couple days.....this is going to be our 3rd TA since we started this whole process!

                      And no dress for me yet!! I keep anxiously checking my email hoping to see that it's been shipped but nothing yet I'll keep you posted as soon as I hear! Did you make any decisions about your dress
