**Travel info. For those of you asking, here’s how we did it:
Budget, budget, budget. My dad gave us $12k for our wedding and the rest was up to us to budget and save. Venus in the U.S. we’re like $10-$20k alone so we knew that was out. We also knew we loved the scenery and wanted to travel.
We got 30% more for the USD in NZ so the prices were less for us.
We tracked flights and set up notifications for when they went on sale. Instead of booking flights into NZ we found it was cheaper to book into Australia. So we actually had a pre-honeymoon travel route throughout AUS and NZ South Island.
We got roundtrip flights for $700 vs $1500 because we flew into Aus.
I also set up tracking for a few friends and family members so we could notify them when prices dropped. Our friends got the same deal we did and flew out of Dallas which was 3 hours from where we lived in Louisiana.
