FAQs

This page will likely be updated frequently as we get closer to our wedding date. Please check back regularly for updates!
Question

When should I RSVP by?

Answer

Formal invitations will be mailed in the spring of 2024. Please RSVP no later than Friday, July 12 2024, so that we may submit accurate headcounts to our vendors.

Question

Can I bring additional guests (e.g., my kids, a date, a friend)?

Answer

Due to limited space, we are only able to accommodate guests formally invited on your wedding invitation. With the exception of close friends and family, we are unable to accommodate kids. And no children under the age of 5 are permitted into the venue. We encourage some of you to use this event as a date night or a vacation! If you received a plus one, it will be indicated on your invitation. Thank you so much for understanding!

Question

Do you have any hotel recommendations?

Answer

Yes! Please see the Travel & Lodging tab.

Question

What is the dress code?

Answer

We’d love to see our friends and family get dressed up for our big day! As such, the dress code for the wedding is Formal, aka Black Tie Optional. For women, this means floor or mid-length silhouettes (dresses, jumpsuits, lehengas, saris, etc.) For men, this means a tuxedo or a suit and a bow tie or tie. Please no shorts or short dresses, and please refrain from wearing white or shades of white!

Question

What time should I arrive at the ceremony?

Answer

The ceremony will begin promptly at 5 o' clock in the evening. Please arrive 30 minutes prior at 4:30 to give yourself time to park (if you are driving) and find a seat.

Question

Do I need to rent a car?

Answer

The Tampa International Airport and St. Pete-Clearwater International Airport are about a 30 min. drive to downtown St. Petersburg.

Question

Is there transportation to and from the hotels to the ceremony?

We likely will not be providing transportation to the wedding venue, but we will be offering our guests a $20 voucher towards their Ubers to and from the venue. Check back closer to the wedding date for more info!
