A car ride can be fun! Just make some great mixes. I’ve had the best talks with my fiance on long car rides, so I don’t think they’re totally boring!

Honestly, I think it kind of sounds like a fun adventure! 🙂 I love road trips, though, and I think that as long as you have the right attitude about it it can be a blast!

That stinks 🙁 But you never know. If you can say that you’ll drive, you’re not in a bad position. Sign up at kayak.com, travelzoo, sherman’s travel, etc – websites like that will email you a few times a week with different sales. Maybe you can find something last minute that fits in your budget. And if not, well, you were going to drive anyway.

You could always also mention the situation to your friends.. ya never know – if you have friends that have more time than money, maybe you could recruit another person for your drive as a gift! or if someone may be traveling to your wedding from the location you are driving to, maybe you could piggyback, and just pay for your flight home. There are options out there – good luck!!

It could workout better for you anyways, because flights get delayed etc.

Maybe you’ll actually have more fun once the honeymoon “kicks off” with the drive! Worse case is you sleep most of the way??

The boy and take a 10-hour road trip 2 or 3 times a year to visit his parents, and it’s really not bad.

Since you have to do a night stop can you plan that ahead of time to be somewhere fun?  Maybe you’ll have enough time to stop and go to a nice dinner and sight see?

Sorry to hear that!  That sucks!  Does this mean no partying/drinking at your reception then?  Maybe you can still find cheap flights like what @vistagirl suggested.  :/

I wouldn’t want to do that either, but at least you can make it out of an adventure. You could make stops and take photos (would be great for scrapbooking).
