    Hi!!! I have already started planning and we have deceided on the Paradisus Punta Cana! We are beyond excited with the decision we have made. I'm trying to figure out how to make this the most affordable for our families and friends. We are on the younger side, my fianc© will be 24 & I will be 22 so our friends are around the same age and beginning paying school loans back so I'm trying to keep everything under 1500$/person including airfare. Unfortunately we are located in Pittsburgh and direct flights from here are out the question.. Any advice on airfare and how to word the invites so that everyone can know where to get the most inexpensive airfare is appreciated!! We are only inviting 30 people and will have marriage announcements sent out when we return with invites to an informal outdoor BBQ for people not invited to the wedding. All of our families and friends not attending the actual wedding know and support our decision.These invites will be perfectly clear that this is NOT a reception and gifts are not expected. I have already found so many helpful ideas and tips on this website and hope to find many more! Thanks for all your help in advance and happy planning ladies!!!!!!

          Welcome to the boards and congratulations on having a destination already picked out! 


          There are not direct flights from Pittsburgh? I am surprised as I thought they had direct flights to the DR from most major cities.


          My recommendation would be to start searching major sites like orbitz, kayak and expedia to see what the prices look like. You might also want to try and reach out to a local travel agent that is highly recommended and see what pricing they might give you. I have read that depending on the time/place/etc - you might get better rates using one or the other. Also, if you choose to have your wedding on a lower peak time (not spring break time) - prices are usually cheaper.


          Good luck to you!
