Should we add a day to the weddingmoon? BWI fliers input wanted.
I'm getting kind of nervous about our weddingmoon plans....
We're booked at CSA 5/13/12-5/23/12 and the wedding is scheduled for 5/16/12. My fiance works for SouthWest airlines, who bought and is integrating AirTran. We will get to fly to Jamaica for free, but we fly standby.
If there are BWI fliers out there who have flown on AirTran...Are the flights super full? I don't really care about us even getting on the same flight, just as long as we both get there. lol What I AM concerned about is the fact that we MUST be there before 4pm on 5/13 to meet the 72 hour residency requirement.
So...now I'm thinking that maybe we should go down on 5/12 instead. That way, if anything happens and one or both of us is arriving after 4pm, it will still be a day early. (We really want to keep the 5/16 wedding date, so pushing it back isn't an option...Plus, that would cost an extra $250 anyway, since we already reserved the date/time.)
It IS a nice chunk of change that would have to come out of our wedding budget somewhere else though....to go down for one extra night. We are already committed to $4,530 for the 10 nights. It would jump to $4,983 for the extra night. On the other hand, we could do 5/12-5/19 at CSA and do the next 4 nights (5/29-5/23) to CSS. That option would be $4,679....
What would YOU do???
