Fiance and I will be paying for our trips to and from the destination whereas my parents are paying for the wedding, so the “mini-vacations” are outside of the budget. My family’s travel however will be part of the budget.

Luckily FI’s mom lives where we’re planning our wedding so it cuts out the hotel costs and cuts way down on teh food/incidentals cost.

I’m not counting it in the budget. You truly can plan everything from a distance (in my case anyway), its just my comfort level that makes me want to go in person, meet people, make sure I can depend on them, especially since I’m coming from a distance. So, this extra $ is really for the sake of my sanity… and if I see one more “cost” on the budget sheet, my sanity might be broken all over again. 😉

We didn’t include these trips in our budget, although I wish we had…oh those little things you don’t think about when setting your final budget!  : )  These “little” trips can get very expensive.
