FAQs

Questions? Check here for your answer. Otherwise, please contact the bride or groom and we'll be happy to talk!
Question

What is the dress code?

Answer

Formal/Semi-Formal. Tuxes and gowns are welcome! But suits and dresses are as well. Make sure to bring your dancing shoes, too!

Question

Is the reception indoors or outdoors?

Answer

The reception will be held indoors in the ballroom of The Belle of Blue Belle Country Club.

Question

Is there an after party?

Answer

Officially, no. But the bar at Normandy Farms hotel where our hotel block is will be open until 2am for drinks! Feel free to continue the party there after the reception.

Question

What time should I arrive at the church?

Answer

We recommend aiming to arrive an hour early at the church. The streets of Philly can get congested around the holiday season and we want everyone to be able to mingle and have some time to catch up before the mass begins!

Question

Where should I park?

Answer

The parking lot for the Gesu is at St. Joe's Prep, attached to the church. Please park there for the mass. You may park at the Belle for the reception, but if you are planning on spending the night at Normandy Farms or want to go to the bar after the reception, we recommend parking at Normandy. A shuttle will run throughout the evening and night back and forth from the hotel to the Belle.

Question

Can I bring a date?

Answer

While we'd love for you to be able to have a friend or special someone with you, due to our venue capacity, we unfortunately aren't able to allow plus ones for our wedding. We thank you for your understanding.

Question

Do you have a hotel block?

Answer

Yes! We have rooms blocked at Normandy Farms hotel. Please see the "Travel" tab above for instructions on how to book a room from our block. We ask you do this as soon as possible. If you want extra days beside the wedding night, let us know! We can work out accommodations for you. If you try to reserve a room from the block and there's none left available, let the bride or groom know and we'll have more rooms added to the block or can recommend another close by hotel.

Question

Where are you registered?

Answer

Right here on Zola! You'll find the Registry tab at the top of our website page. You can order straight from the site. Super easy, right?

Question

Can I take pictures of the wedding and post on social media?

Answer

Absolutely! Make sure you tag both the bride and groom in anything you post, we'd love to see them! We only ask that you refrain from using flash photography during the mass itself.

Question

I have a dietary restriction or allergy. What can be done?

Answer

Please let us know about any dietary restrictions or allergies as soon as possible. We'd be happy to make sure you have the proper meal accommodations.

Question

What about Sunday Brunch?

Answer

The bride, groom, and their immediate family will be having brunch at The Farmers Daughter, right inside Normandy Farms Inn. If you and your party would like to make your own reservations, please either do so online at the Farmers Daughter website https://www.farmersdaughterpa.com , or by calling them directly at 215-616-8300.
