yeah it sucks, didn’t you hear of all the nonsense of aloha and ata airline… well i was one of those sucker that lost 700 bucks to ata cause of their bankruptcy nonsense…  tixs for hawaii isn’t going to go down much, maybe low at around 400 per tix.

you might want to try mexico or something… i would do it there if i was brave enough to plan a Destination Wedding.

  • Wedding: March 2009

Me, me! I’m also planning a destination wedding on Oahu, from Pennsylvania. We actually have the same reason you do for having a destination wedding.

I used to live in Hawaii, and I go back every few years. In 2005, I paid $603 for my ticket to Hawaii (which is really good for the East coast!). In 2007, Fiance and I both went to Hawaii, we paid around $1300 for both our tickets (about $650 each). I booked our tickets 2 weeks ago for our March 2009 wedding and paid $1541 for two tickets. I was hesitant to buy tickets 10mths in advance, but I didn’t want to lose that price. Thank god I did, because a week later the tickets were over $1000!!!!

My dad literally called me 6 times one day to update me on ticket prices for himself, my mom and brother. He bought them 2 days ago for $1014 for each ticket. He had to buy 3 tickets. I feel extremely guilty that they are paying all that, but I know my dad wants to go back to Hawaii (it’s been 12 years since he’s been back) just as much as he wants to be at my wedding. Luckily I have a great dad who is excited about going to Hawaii, rather than bitching about the cost.

FI’s mom doesn’t have much money, so we might pay for half her flight just to make sure she’s there, but I’m not sure too many other people will come once they see how much it’ll cost to fly there…that’s not including a hotel, food and entertainment.
