The Flight Deal team is going to a few destination weddings in the next few months and one of the easiest ways for the Bride & Groom to help their guests save a little on travel to the wedding are:
All airlines have a Group & Meeting Desk that negotiate discounts for group travel. Most airlines require a minimum of 5 and 10 guests going to the destination from anywhere to receive a minimum of 5% discount.

Call or E-mail the sales department of the hotel you are planning to have the wedding and negotiate a group rate. The hotel will require a minimum room commitment. But it will help your guests save a significant amount of money.
