I think it partly depends on where you’re going but I would book now.  I know tickets have gone up for our same time (I was curious too) since we booked ousr a few months ago.

Reserve now. Some booking companies will refund you the differnece if prices go down.

Prices are cheapest at two times:

– months ahead of time- they always have a few seats at an inexpensive price so they can advertise   “from $298 return” for example

or

-at the last minute to sell unsold seats.

Purchasing a couple of months ahead of your travel date likely will mean you pay the highest prices, not the lowest.

Most companies will honor a price drop- not necessarily with a refund, but likely with a credit for future travel.

I probably wouldn’t wait any longer than 3 months out from your honeymoon date.  We’re getting our flights next month probably, but they’re to Italy & international flights are a little different sometimes.  I doubt our flights are going to drop any.  Flights to FL could very well drop, but waiting is a big risk to take.

Gas prices are expected to go up again in May, so tickets will most likely go up if you wait until after then.

I booked our flights about 8 months before, and I just checked now, and there are a lot less choices for flights/times than when I booked, and flights are slightly more expensive too. So I think pushing it is a risk, you will def have less choices and may have a hard time getting seats together on the flights.
