Hello dear guest! This webpage is designed special for you: to help you get to our wedding in Burlington, Iowa have fun while you're here and also know how to bless us as we begin our new life as one. We look forward to seeing you!
The cheapest flight in the area from the West changes by the day. There are several airports within driving distance that could be the cheapest flight.
Moline, IL (MLI)
Chicago, IL (ORD)
Chicago, IL (Midway)
Peoria, IL (PIA)
St. Louis, MO (STL)
Cedar Rapids, IA (CID)
You can get flights into Burlington through either STL or ORD which makes them our top recommendations. You can find those flight times at www.airchoiceone.com
The cheapest airport to fly into is Chicago O'hare (ORD). This is about a 4.5 hour drive from Burlington so you would need to get a connecting flight to Burlington (booked separately). There is one airline that flies into Burlington from Chicago with flights at 9:00 and 19:00. Tickets cost $55 USD one way and can be booked at www.airchoiceone.com.
If these times do not work for you, we recommend flying into Moline (MLI) instead. This airport is 1.5 hours from Burlington.
You may also be able to find a cheaper flight into a different airport, or experience an American road trip and rent a car.
IF YOU FLY INTO MOLINE, WE WILL BE ABLE TO PICK YOU UP ON JULY 7TH AND BRING YOU INTO BURLINGTON. IF YOU ARE FLYING DIRECTLY INTO BURLINGTON, WE WILL PICK YOU UP REGARDLESS OF THE DAY. ANY OTHER FLIGHT ARRANGEMENTS WILL REQUIRE YOU TO FIND YOUR OWN TRANSPORTATION INTO BURLINGTON.
To help you keep your costs down while still enjoying all that Iowa has to offer, we have set up host families for you to stay at. We have a limited number of homes available, so we will need to know ASAP whether you would prefer to stay with a family or book a hotel. The best hotels to choose from would be Comfort Inn and Suites, Holiday Inn, and Pzazz.
Burlington is located right along the Mississippi river. It has many things to do in a small radius. It is centrally located between Kansas City, St. Louis, and Chicago. We know many Europeans will want to see as much as they can during their stay, and are here to help. Whether it is in Burlington, or going outside of it, let us know what you are looking to do and we will do our best to point you in the right direction to get the most out of your time.
If you haven't realized by now, TJ and I do things a bit differently, and our registry will be no exception. Due to our desire to eventually move permanently overseas, we are not looking solely for items to help make our home. We have three ways that you can bless us on our big day:
1. Some things. We have a small registry set up at Target.
2. Airline miles. We are also accepting the gift of flight. We have frequent flier accounts at Delta and American Airlines/US Airways that you can donate miles to. This will go towards our honeymoon as well as future flights as we believe God is leading us permanently overseas.
3. Money. We know it's boring, and we are kind of sorry, but we feel lead to serve as full-time missionaries, and shipping stuff overseas is not something we want to worry about. With that in mind, we are asking for cash gifts that will help us settle into our new home whenever and wherever that may be.
Have we confused you more than helped? If you have any other questions, shoot us a message here or on Facebook, or however, and we'll help you out. Maybe.
