How far in advance did you or should you buy your airline tickets?

Our wedding will be next September - does anyone have advice for me regarding when would be the best time (price-wise) to buy tickets for the trip?

The only advice I can give is keep looking at flights and as soon as you see a great deal jump on it.

Just keep checking and when you find a good deal, book it!

Perhaps you could contact the airline, let them know the number of guests that you are expecting to travel with and see if they have a recommended timeline?

We tried to use our NWA miles, but were told that timeframe is already blacked out. One of my BM's used her miles to book her flight on US Airways back in May and had no problem.
Now, we are monitoring airfares b/c they had skyrocketed for Punta Cana (we'll be flying out of ATL b/c we want a direct flight on NWA) but finally they are starting to level off and come back down for our dates.
Basically, I would set up alerts so different sites will email you when the price drops, and jump on it when it looks good. I monitor all the departure cities for our confirmed guests and email them as soon as good fares pop up -- because oftentimes they won't last long!

My friend has been watching prices on Continental for Feb the last few months and they fluctuate quite a bit. She is going to buy hers the next time it takes a dip.
