when to purchase flights?

I am going on my honeymoon in October, which means I have fairly fixed dates for the flight to Ireland. I don't want to buy now and miss out on a good deal, but I also don't want prices to increase with the cost of fuel. Any suggestions on when to buy?

if you have very fixed dates - id get them now or soon. The "summer specials" are probably already over for many, but the Fall specials may come out next month. Fuel costs wont get much cheaper and the Open Skys is now "open" as of March 30 if you were thinking more competition will lower prices. If youre using miles you may be late (but Oct is shoulder season). Are-Lingus im told is one of the best ways to get to europe through a back-door-flight systems from Ireland. Since thats your dest - it may offer best deals!
