    Ok, not sure if anyone can help me with this but we still haven't purchased our airfare for our wedding to Mexico in February.  Rates have been super high but just wondering if anyone has found really great deals out there?  It is so hard to know when to purchase tickets because prices could go down but they could just as easily go up instead.  So frustrating!  Thanks!

      Totally understand your frustration. Where do you go to look for your airfare? If you look on Kayak.com they have a fare trend chart and such so you can kinda make a better "plan" on when to buy airfare. It's difficult though even with that because it goes up and down like a yo-yo sometimes. So we pretty much monitored the site until we saw some fares that were really reasonable; we actually bought our tickets in early August (and we fly out in early November) so I guess that was 3 months in advance. I told my guests to try and purchase tickets at the latest at least 1.5 to 2 months in advance because I noticed it was creeping up.  However, I think it's totally a gamble sometimes. I've also noticed that sometimes airfare goes up right before holidays. But honestly, I've given up trying to make sense out of the fluctuating airfares because there seems to be no rhyme or reason. Good luck!

        We haven't purchased our airfare either. Our travel agent said that lots of seats are still available and advised that we purchase this Dec, or wait after the holidays (after Jan 1). If prices don't decrease after holidays, our agent doesn't think prices will decrease and we should book right after holidays.
