Your best and cheapest way to get to Vientiane (the capital) from BKK is via Udon Thani. It is cheaper as it is an internal thai flight - with many aircraft flying there. It's then a simple matter to hire a mini bus or taxi car - for about 10USD to the border at NongKai - and cross teh friendship bridge by foot - over the border and then about 4USD into town.
If you fly direct to Vientiane - or even to the culrually significant Luang Prabang - it is more expensive - due to being an international desitantion with associated taxes and charges.
The Udon Thani way is what a lot of expats use to get up there fast and easy.
