So...sadly I am realizing that many of our OOT guests won't be able to afford the cost of travel and make it to our wedding. Honestly, I'm not even sure some of my FAMILY will be able to come! I've searched and tried to find ways to make it cheaper for travelers, but every site tells me the same thing, at least $400-$500 per plane ticket (flying into Norfolk, VA no matter where they are coming from). Has anyone had any luck with travel agencies or group rates on tickets?? I'm completely understand that our guests just can't all afford the cost of flying out, renting a car and driving at least 2 hours, and the hotel. I just really wish I could find a way to make it easier. Any ideas or suggestions out there??
(I should mention that our guests who live close enough to drive, will be doing so. I'm concerned about my family, who will have to fly from California.)
