Wedding Discounts

Q. I'm getting married next year and will have many guests flying the same route to attend.  I know hotels give discounts when booking many rooms at once or blocking out rooms for a wedding, but I’m wondering if airlines do something similar? Any advice you have would be greatly appreciated!

A. Call the airline, ask for their group & specialty travel services department and negotiate. Ask for a free fare for every so many guests you're booking. In most cases, if you can book 10 or more guests, you'll qualify for a discount and/or an upgrade to first class for the bride and groom, which works out nicely for destination weddings or honeymoons.
