Wedding Week Countdown: Up, Up & Away!

First, a big congratulations to Hannah from A Very Gator Wedding who’s tying the knot this weekend! I hope you have a fabulous day, filled with all the fun wedding ideas you’ve shared with us! :)

As for me, this is it! Stephen and I are off to the airport, wedding gown and honeymoon luggage in hand, with less than a week to go until our big day!

Now, you’d think that given all of the bags we’re toting along – including everything for the week before the wedding, the wedding itself, and the honeymoon – we’d be prepared to pay a hefty number of luggage-check fees before we board the plane. But we’re not worried at all. Not in the least.

Why? Well, as a wonderful pre-wedding surprise, Stephen’s dad snagged us first-class tickets, meaning that not only can we enjoy an especially comfortable, relaxing flight, but also that we’re able to take a pass on the airlines' infamous nickel-and-diming on everything from checked luggage to food and drinks.

This is probably the first time in my life I’ve actually been looking forward to a cross-country flight, and is even more of a reminder of what a generous, thoughtful family I’m about to join. Have a great weekend, everyone, and I’ll catch up with you in Cali!

  1. Have a safe flight and wonderful weekend! I can't believe your wedding is almost here!!

  2. Yay for first class and all the awesome perks that come with it! We flew first class to Costa Rica two years ago, and it's hard to go back to coach, but sometimes it's too expensive to justify the cost!

    1 week to go! So exciting :)

  3. Wow, first class! What a nice present :)

    Good luck on your big day, I hope it's awesome :)

  4. Have a safe flight and enjoy first class you first class person you! ~;o)

  5. I am totally jealous. What a wonderful way to start your amazing week!

  6. How amazing, how was First Class?

    I would love to try it one day!
