What is the Best DW Tip when you are Newly Engaged?

Recommended Posts


There is one tip that I would instantly shout out to a couple that is newly engaged and considering a destination wedding OR even planning a local wedding, and that is . . . drumroll . . . open up a credit card with a “frequent flyer†airline attached to it. 


 suggest the CHASE United/Continental VISA card, but basically, if you already have mileage on a particular airline, simply check to see if that airline flies to your desired location and has a credit card with bonus offerings. 


Once you get your card, put all your wedding deposits on it, and though I am not advising you to run up a credit card, rather, pay it off each month if you can. 


My tip with this is that if you tend to use a debit card or have a little credit on a credit card,  WHY not build miles so your flights can possibly be free?  Some other great perks are free luggage on your flights, a potential first class upgrade, AND one of the best things that comes with these types of cards, is getting to board in the first ZONE, so you can carry your dress and place it in the overhead before ANYONE else gets on board.  Heaven help you if you are in zone 4 and there is no overhead space left!!  If you have outstanding credit, CHASE visa also gives you 2 miles for every 1 dollar you spend and access to their “club†lounge at the airport!   

Some of the best tips on navigating that crazy world of frequent flyer cards can be found at www.awardwallet.com  or the www.traveltipsguy.com and the www.frugaltravelguide.com.  I never realized there was such a science to building miles; but fly on a nonstop 10 hour flight to Honolulu with no meals, zone 4 boarding, and $25 per bag, AND you quickly wish you had known how to get FREE upgrades, free bags and free coupons for meals/drinks!!   I remember planning my wedding and the amount of initial deposits that had to be made, the costs of the dress, the shoes, the final payments on the rooms.  All of the deposits earned valuable mileage!   So, figure out which airline is best for your preferred airport and destination and try getting a new credit card!

    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
