Bride on A Budget (7,000.00 WEDDING CHALLENGE)

Recommended Posts

The airplane belly (where luggage goes) is rather cold because of the low pressure outside the plane, etc. I wouldn't be worried about that. Just make sure to pack them well in case anything happens your other stuff won't get damaged.

super random- but at $6 a piece through our resort I'm thinking I'll bring my own tealights. Did anyone do this before? I am a little concerned they will melt...and my carry-on will be full with my dress.

Ladies another tip is not to purchase your flight tickets so early. My TA alerted my fiance' and I of sale seats....in which we are able to buy flights at discounted prices. She is keeping an eye out for them. 
My cousin, a TA, just told me this! Now if I can just find a way to resist the urge to buy as soon as flights are available...

What are special sale seats? Are the just the normal specials that airlines run periodically?

Yes! That was my understanding. Based on trends the best prices are 5-7 weeks out, according to the TA. I'm not so sure I can wait that long. That would stress me out

 This will be interesting considering we did a package deal thru Dreams.  Looking  forward to the final total in costs.    Is this going to include the hotel stay or just the wedding expenses? If  included be nice to know the number of stays.  I think of this as being a wedding expense overall.  Happy Planning!

I'm not sure what package you got, but since Dreams is an AMR resort, you should be getting refunds based on the number of rooms (buy 5 get 1 free).

Ladies, Who are you choosing for photography? This seems to be one of the most expensive on my list. I do not want to spend too much but I also do not want to sacrifice quality. Your thoughts?
