Like my misleading title? Shame on you for thinking it was dirty. Still, funny isn’t it? Haha! I wonder if Marnie will let me remain in charge of arranging travel?
In all seriousness though, when it comes to coordinating the different aspects of our wedding, travel is probably going to be one of the tougher tasks. While the most exotic place that my family will be coming from is Australia (Vancouver, Calgary and Edmonton – not so exotic), Marnie will see much of her family travel from the Midwest US and United Kingdom.
And we’ve known all along that flying as a group was likely not possible due to all this different embarkation points, let alone the different combination of travel dates, but we did want to see if there was a way to help make things easier for our guests regardless.
This is where it’s difficult – there are too many options and all require some level of commitment. Some airlines have a loose understanding of what constitutes a group, while others provide a discount based on a certain number of people flying regardless of when and what flights people choose. It’s like a coordination nightmare.
So what do we do? I’m more apt to simply let people do their own thing – anyone have experience with travel to a destination wedding? Or maybe you’re a airline insider? Help.
