Plane tickets: Since we live in Hawaii, and our wedding will be in Washington, plane tickets cost almost as much as the wedding itself- a little over $900. But i would never ever be able to have a wedding that i could afford in Hawaii (though it would make things easier).

Total so far: $950 + 900 for plane tickets = 1850+/- overall!
