    Where are you traveling from? we are traveling from NY and prices are not out yet for August next year but I have seen it anywhere from $950 to what we paid for our site visit $407

    Our prices aren't out yet either. 2 TAs and a friend stated the $350 ballpark for flights. We are leaving from FL. Hopefully you guys will be able to get a flight around the price you paid for your visit.

      Every time I am booking a vacation I wish to live in Florida, the prices are so much cheaper to flight from there. Thank you, it was scary to get that price, we had the hotel booked and I kept watching the fare every day a few times a day, until I got that cheap fare like 5 days before departure, I rushed to buy it and it went right back up, I kept waiting for an email telling me it was an error, funny, I got an email but offering to upgrade to first for $79 each. LOL 

       

      We are working with a TA and I hope she would be able to get us all a good price, we are all leaving from NYC.

          Definitely keep in mind the tips earlier in this thread (5% discount from American, other airlines may give discounts on the same itinerary, etc.).

          Not necessarily, if you are staying 7 nights it would be 3-3500, but guest can stay only 4 nights or 3. Because of personal reasons my room came up a lot more expensive that I would have like it but I am thinking my guests would be around $2500 or less for 4 nights. 

          I see...its different in Canada. We generally get 7 days package and that's it.

            Oh wow! I can't believe you can't get a 3-4 day package! Not everyone can take a week off of work.  :(

                But can they buy separate, air and hotel? That is how I have it arranged with my TA since prices for airfare are not out yet and buying a package would require ME making a non refundable 10% deposit for all flights I put on hold. NOT HAPPENING!

                  Hello Ladies, Im also planning my destination wedding in Cancun. My fiance and i chose Gran Caribe Real. I fell in love with the chapel... Its just beautiful! I've stayed at that resort twice and both times that i've been there it has been a great experience. So thats why we decided to marry there. The total cost of the wedding is about 8,000. But i think it might be less since its not a big group. Im really excited!
