What should I wear?
This is a formal, morning event.
Julie and Randy will wear (again) their wedding finery.
The ceremony, cocktail hour and reception are all indoors.
Bring your dancing shoes!
No, really, what should I wear?
For men: A suit is a good choice. If you want to go wild with formal clothing, a morning coat or the traditional formal wear of your ancestors (kilt? Nigerian wedding suit?) would be fun. If you want to be pedantic -- and who wouldn't? -- a tuxedo is not appropriate since this event takes place before 6PM.
For women: Shoes you can dance in. Not a white wedding dress or a black funeral outfit. Other than that, you're on your own.
In our backyard / basement: Jeans, or whatever is comfy.
Is there a theme to the wedding?
Yes: ballroom dancing, which Randy and Julie have been doing together for many years. In addition to the traditional "first" dance (for Randy and Julie) and the usual wedding-type dancing (for all), there will be some dancing activities led by ballroom dancing professionals. Please do come with dance-friendly footwear and a willingness to get up and dance.
What beverages will served?
Mimosas will be served during the cocktail hour.
Beer, wine and soda will be served during the reception, along with a champagne toast.
What are the after-party details? Is it optional?
Yes it is optional!! For those for whom it is a delightful treat to socialize in Julie and Randy's basement rec room, and mostly-dog-poop-cleared back yard, entertained by conversation and fed by take-out Chinese food, pizza, and wedding leftovers -- this is for you! Optimal attire is jeans and a sweatshirt, but allowances will be made for those who retain their wedding finery.
Um, the after-party sounds "delightful". Will anyone be offended if we don't come?
Not at all! If you are asking this question, then the answer is: thank you so much for sharing our renewal of vows and reception; it was an honor and a privilege to share our celebration day with you. Now please go home (travel gently!)
If you want to burglarize our home while we are getting married:
Don't bother, the house will have a house-sitter.
For those who didn't have enough fun on Saturday, Sunday activities will include breakfast with Julie and Randy at the Holiday Inn.
