We’re getting close! I can’t believe the wedding is less than 2 months away.
I figure some of y’all might want to start making travel plans (at least, if you’re a big plan-ahead person like me). Fortunately, Dallas/Fort Worth is the hub of both American Airlines and Southwest, so there are dozens of reasonable options for flights.
Unfortunately, Dallas/Fort Worth does not have many public transportation options, so renting a car is fairly essential unless you know a local. Please share any great deals you might find!
As for hotels: rather than reserve a block of rooms at one location, we wanted to give y’all the choice of a wide range of accommodations near the church. There are hundreds of hotels in Dallas/Fort Worth, so feel free to browse more widely if these options don’t work for you, but here are some recommendations close to where we’ll be.
