FAQs

Question

What is Summer Formal?

Answer

Summer Formal just means formal attire that is a little more relaxed than traditional formal. Linen suits, flowy dresses, vibrant colors - all welcome! Ties not required, but please do come in a jacket and pants, or a dress :)

Question

When should I RSVP by?

Answer

Please RSVP no later than Sunday April 28th - reach out to either of us with any questions!

Question

Do you have any hotel recommendations?

Answer

We have a hotel block at the Moxy - navigate to the travel tab for more details! The Sonder East End is also detailed on the travel tab - this is more of an apartment-style rental if you're looking for more space and something with separate bedrooms and kitchen. It is located across the street from the Moxy. If the Moxy is booked out, or you're looking for a different brand of hotel near to the action: Canopy by Hilton, Radisson Red, Aloft, and Residence Inn at the Depot are all great options within 1-2 blocks of the Moxy.

Question

What time should I arrive at the ceremony?

Answer

We plan to start the ceremony shortly after 4:30pm, so please aim to arrive to the venue with enough time to be seated by then.

Question

Is there parking for the ceremony + reception?

Answer

Yes, Glass House has free parking for up to 60 vehicles in their parking lot directly next to the building.

Question

Are kids welcome?

Answer

Due to the nature of our wedding venue, and because we want everyone (including parents!) to enjoy a night of revelry and relaxation, we ask firmly but respectfully that babies and children not attend the ceremony and reception the night of the 31st. Feel free to bring your kids for all the other events surrounding the wedding, we would love to meet them!

Question

Are there any other events that I should know about around the wedding?

Answer

Yes, lots of optional events! The night before the wedding we are having a happy hour from 8-10pm, and we are hanging out in Minneapolis for the weekend after the wedding. Check out the schedule tab for all the info!

Question

Are you registered? Where?

Answer

We are registered with Zola, the online host of this website. Check out the registry tab for details, but please know that your presence at our wedding is a gift in and of itself!

Question

I'm in town for a bit before or after the wedding - What should I visit?

Answer

Minneapolis in the summer is fantastic. There's something for everyone! Sports: -The Minnesota Twins play the Royals at Target Field on Thursday 5/30 at 12:10pm. Every seat in the ballpark is a good ticket and you will likely be able to get one for under $15 on a weekday. Stadium is just a 5 minute rail ride from the Moxy. -The Minnesota United FC play Sporting KC at Allianz Field on Saturday 6/1 at 7:30pm. Soccer games are fun and tickets are usually in the $30-45 range. The stadium is a 20 min drive or Green Line light rail ride from the Moxy. Arts & Culture: -The highly-rated Mill City Museum is situated riverfront in the limestone ruins of the Washburn grain mill, just a couple blocks away from the Moxy and features 8 stories of interactive history of farming, advertising, and historical impact of grain milling in the United States. Tickets are $12 for adults, less for kids and seniors. -Minneapolis has the 2nd most theater seats per capita behind just NYC. The Guthrie theater is also just a few blocks away and features nightly showings and weekend matinees of Broadway plays starting around $40, and lots of other smaller venues can be found showing a range of plays, musicals, and performance acts across town. Outdoors/Nature: -The Riverwalk along the mighty Mississippi is just a few blocks away, access via Gold Medal Park. The Stone Arch bridge is a popular spot for a stroll and some pictures with the skyline, and the Mill City Farmers Market takes place every Saturday from 8am to 1pm next to the Mill City Museum. -Minnehaha Park is a quick Blue Line light rail ride south and features accessible trails, lush lawns and bike paths, a great seafood stand + beer garden, and stunning views of Minnehaha Falls -Minneapolis is the best biking city in America. Hop on a bike share (via the Lime or Veo apps) and explore the various bike paths along the Mississippi river, through town, or around the beautiful chain of lakes.
