Where's a good place to stay?

Our efforts to find a single hotel where everyone can stay have failed to bear fruit. There are several great options within convenient walking distance from the venue, each with beautiful views of the Portland Harbor. The problem that we are finding is that since we are getting married in the middle of prime tourist season, the hotels aren't really into cutting deals. They know they won't have any problem filling up all their rooms, so we really have nothing to offer them. We are going to keep working on it, but it isn't looking good. You may want to try to find something on your own. In the light of what I said about tourist season, you may not want to wait too long, either. Also, several people have found vacation rentals that are much cheaper than hotel rooms, so be creative in your searching.

Open Bars and Graphic Design

We had a meeting with the caterer today to discuss a few details. She gave us plenty of suggestions of ways that we could save, which we appreciated. She asked that we put together our ideas for the wedding cake so that she could discuss them with her baker. We will get on that as soon as we get the invitations in the mail. Those are on their way to the printer and ought to go out next week sometime.

Yes, I will be able to attend.

We are so excited that you will be able to make it. Please post a comment with your full name and the number of people in your party. You do not have to create a Google account; you may post as anonymous and simply "sign" your name in the body of your post. Check out the FAQ for more details.

Note for Maine locals: We are avoiding the traditional "Plus One" restrictions because we know that many of you Mainers have children that might like to see some superheroes in person. That being said, we have a limited budget for the reception, so we can't guarantee that there will be food for everyone. You may want to grab them some chicken nuggets on the way.

Update: So you may have noticed that the official RSVP deadline has come and gone. Does this mean that you have missed out on your chance to attend the most awesome wedding the world has ever known? Of course not. We would love for you to be there. But be aware, we are giving the caterer the numbers we have as of today. Late RSVPers may want to eat dinner beforehand.

No, I will not be able to attend.

We are so sorry that you will not be able to join us, but we certainly understand. Please post a comment with your name so we can cross you off the guest list.


In our ongoing effort to cut costs wherever possible, we have decided to save money on return postage by having guests RSVP via the website.

Money to Burn

Well the expenses are starting to pile up. We have officially selected a caterer and finalized discussion wit the costumer. As is always the case, both were more expensive than I anticipated. In any event, we are very excited to be working with both. The costumes ough to look wicked awesome and the food will be simple delicious fare.
