      In regards to the 5K wedding, I think the all-inclusive resort seems like a great idea. The ceremony/reception packages at RIU are free for a basic package and up to $2,500 for an extravagant one. If your families can cover your flight and stay at the resort that will really cut your costs. I'm in the process of picking which Riu resort I like the best, there are so many to pick from....

        We're separating everything through bags. We have several guests leaving out of our town, so since we're allowed 2 checked bags each, most of our guests are only taking one, and my in-laws are only taking a carry-on we're just dispersing the bags through everyone.

        I used to work at the airport and know everyone who works out there, but they never charge me for overweight or extra bags. They don't even put them on the scale, they make me tag them myself! So weight isn't an issue, but I don't want to take too many bags that I have to bring back and get charged for.

          For this you have to really stick to the package. Alot of the girls find extra things they want to have and have to purchase. The biggest being, that a lot of girls want a better photographer than what the hotel offers and a photographer will run you 1500+ and much more for a really good one.
