May I bring my kid(s)?
Yes; kids of all ages are welcome to both the ceremony and the reception, but there will be no child care provided. Please RSVP
(the Bride’s email address is on your invitation)with the total number in your party, inclusive of all children, so that we set up enough tables and chairs.
How should I dress?
On a scale of “shirts, shorts, and flip-flops” to “black tie,” with shorts being 1 and black tie being 10, we recommend wearing a “6” or higher. For men, this would be business casual (slacks, nice shirt, tie optional). For women, business casual also.
You may dress more formally if you like. The Bride and Groom will be dressed at about the 8 level. Him: suit and tie. Her: fancy dress and hosiery.
At the reception, costumes are welcome but not required.
Where are you registered?
Boxes of ready-to-eat cereal? Why? And how many?
The cereal is not for us, but for the Center for Women and Families, because they do want cereal. Often women and families come to them with nothing whatsoever, and they need something they can feed them, immediately. Cereal fits the bill. For a full explanation of why cereal is so important to us, click here
Please bring at least one box per family, but you may bring as many as you want.
So, what is this potluck bizness?
Our reception dinner will be served potluck style, meaning guests bring dishes to share. Meat and dessert will be provided. Guests are asked to bring any type of side dish or vegetarian entrée to share with at least six (6) others.
P.S. The bride is especially fond of deviled eggs.
If I am coming from out of town, how can I bring a dish?
Three blocks on your (likely) way to the church, there is a Kroger grocery store. For a Google map and directions, click here
. Feel free to grab something from their deli that you like.
Talent show? Whaaaaa????
Yes! We are having an open mic talent show at our reception. You are encouraged, but absolutely not required, to let your inner superstar shine! For more information on how to participate, click here
May I text/tweet/Facebook/Instagram during the event?
During the wedding ceremony, we ask that all technology, including cell phones and smartphones, be silent. We also ask that you take no photographs during the ceremony. You will, however, be strongly encouraged to take photos and use social media during the reception.
May I take photos during the event?
During the ceremony, we ask that guests not take photographs of any kind. However, you will be strongly encouraged to take and share photos during the reception.
May we drink alcohol? May we smoke?
Leave that flask at home! There is no alcohol allowed on church property. Also, all of DBCC’s (the church) buildings are nonsmoking.
I’m from out of town. Where do I stay?
We ask that out-of-town guests book their own accommodations. We do not have a single hotel booked for out-of-town guests. There are many convenient accommodations in Louisville. We personally recommend hotels near Louisville’s airport and Fair and Exposition Center, which has more options and is convenient to the church.
Where do I eat?
What do you like? Seriously, Louisville abounds in good dining, from casual all the way through to five-star fine dining.
While Louisville has locations for virtually every regional and national chain restaurant, some of our local favorites are:
Also, we suggest asking your hotel’s front desk or concierge for recommendations.
We’re bored! What is there to do in Louisville, Kentucky besides wedding?
Louisville is a city of around a million people, so there are plenty of attractions and activities ranging from the mundane to the adventurous. For a glimpse at Louisville’s many museums, parks, and other attractions and events, check out the Louisville Visitor’s Bureau site.
