The Ceremony & Reception
Have you ever wanted to see two people get married in the middle of a resale shop? Well, Sunday, July 28 is your lucky day. The doors open at 5:00pm, and the ceremony will kick off at 5:30pm. We hope you can stay for the celebration that follows, which will also be at Salvage One. Bring your appetite and your dancing shoes! Come prepared to break it down, cut a rug, and get your moves on. We are going to put more dip in your hip, more cut in your strut, and more glide in your stride. We know it is a Sunday night, but hopefully you can stay for the 10pm sendoff.
When you park, just make sure to park on the street to avoid getting towed by any angry neighbors who didn't get invited. You can also park in the west parking lot (look for the balloons), but NOT the east parking lot.
Where You Should Stay
We have reserved rooms at two conveniently located hotels depending on how you are arriving and where you would like to stay. Both hotels are reserved for the nights of July 27th and July 28th. You can stay for as long or short as you would like.
If you would like to stay out in the suburbs, we have a block of rooms at the Holiday Inn in Carol Stream. Call 630-665-3000 and drop our names (they know who we are, but if you don't, just say "Drake Fine Wedding Block"). Call by July 6th to get the discounted price.
If you are flying in and won't have a car we have also reserved a block of rooms at Courtyard Chicago near O'Hare Airport. Just call 847-824-7000 and get connected to the hotels we reserved. They have given us a discount price so make sure to mention our names.
We are registered at Target
Haven't used MyRegistry.com before? Don't worry; we'll explain everything! MyRegistry is a site that lets us add a few items from lots of different sources. You can browse our account on MyRegistry by searching for our names. If you click "View or Buy This Gift," you can even go to the original website to find out more about that item.
If you do want to purchase something (you are awesome), you can either buy it on the store website or in a physical store. Once you buy it (seriously, we love you), go back to the MyRegistry site, click "View or Buy This Gift," and click the "Yes" button. The site will ask if you bought it in the store or online. The site will then remove that item from our registry. And voilá That's all there is to it.
