All weddings are special; all holidays are special; but combining the two together makes for extra special memories that you’ll want to treasure forever. Our dedicated Weddings Team will have already helped you get everything ready for your big day, but once everything is in place, maybe it’s time to think of some extra little touches that will really finish the day off nicely.
For each of our wedding destinations, we have a section called ‘Make it extra special’ which will give you a few ideas of what you could add on to your wedding celebrations in that particular destination. These could include flowers, music, cake, hairdressing and make-up services, photographers or room upgrades. These details will also be featured in your Wedding Pack once you receive it and will also approximate local prices.
If you book your wedding through Thomas Cook and then travel with Thomas Cook Airlines, you, the wedding couple, will each receive an extra 5kg of luggage for your wedding outfits; this can be added on at the time of booking. We recommend that you pack your items into a wedding travel box that’s designed to fit into an overhead locker. The maximum dimensions for cabin bags on Thomas Cook Airlines flights are 55x40x20cm.
Why not buy a wedding travel box through us, from the Empty Box Company? They’re handmade, easy to take abroad and are perfect for storing your dress or suit when you get home, too. When choosing your wedding dress, it’s worth considering something that’s lightweight and made of natural fabrics, which will be more comfortable in warmer climates and will travel a lot easier than heavier dresses.
Make the journey to and from your wedding more memorable by taking advantage of Thomas Cook Airline’s pre-bookable extras.
We know that you’ll be busy running around and making plans for your big day, so to make things easier, you can head to flythomascook.com and manage your flight booking from the comfort of your own home. Check all your details, add flight-related extras or check in for your flights with just the click of a button. Of course, you’re always welcome to come in and see us too.
All of our long haul brochure holidays include an in-flight meal, but not just any meal. You get to enjoy a delicious James Martin dish, created especially for our Thomas Cook customers. Indulge in a satisfying main course and hot drink and then sit back and enjoy the rest of your flight. There is a choice of meal options for people who have any dietary requirements.
This is an especially good option if there are a large number of you travelling in your party. Choosing your seats in advance will ensure that you all get to sit together on the journey, for sharing the excitement on the way out there and sharing the memories on the way back. If you get in there early enough, there is even the option to book extra legroom, should you require it.
You will get a 15kg luggage allowance as standard, or 20kg on long haul brochure holidays, but the last thing you want to be doing is cramming all your important wedding essentials into every last corner of your suitcase. Take the stress out of packing and buy yourself an extra 5kg of hold luggae space.
For the majority of Thomas Cook Airline flights, you have the option to check-in online to save time at the airport, book priority check-in to skip the queues and book priority baggage to get you out of the airport quicker when you land.
If you would rather go direct to your hotel from the from the airport, just let us know and we’ll see if we can book you a taxi or a direct transfer.
Get your celebration off to a really great start by ordering some extra special treats such as champagne or chocolates for you and your partner.
