Can we take pictures?We are so looking forward to seeing everyone's pictures from the weekend! Our ceremony is the only time we insist on being unplugged and device free, so please turn off all electronic devices for this portion. Don't worry! We have amazing photography and videography teams to capture every moment of our wedding day, and we promise to share those with you once we get them. Once cocktail hour starts, you are welcome to take all the photos you'd like! If you're posting on social media, we'd love for you to use our hashtag #letsgetsmithfaced2019, so we can enjoy your shares, too! What should I wear?First and foremost, we want you to be comfortable and dance floor ready at all of our events! We should have highs in the mid-80s and lows around 60 degrees [::fingers crossed::]. All events are indoor/outdoor, so dress for warm, spring weather and maybe bring a light sweater or jacket for the evenings. Phoenix does not typically get very humid (get ready for the "dry heat").
What's the best airport to fly into?Lane is on record as claiming Phoenix Sky Harbor International is the best airport in the country. Although she may be prone to bias and exaggeration, PHX is your best bet for this trip as it's just a 10-minute ride from the Hampton-Inn Phoenix Biltmore and has your best selection of "bang for your buck" flights. CJ would like to add that google.com/flights is an excellent tool for finding affordable airfare.Where should I stay?We invite you to book a room in our block at the Hampton-Inn Phoenix Biltmore, which is centrally located near Friday and Sunday's events and just 20 minutes from the wedding venue. If you'd like to do your own thing, there are a number of excellent spas, resorts, VRBOs, and AirBnBs in the area for you to choose from. Let us know if you need a recommendation!How should I get around?Phoenix is not known for its public transportation, so we highly recommend renting a car or using Lyft or Uber throughout the weekend. There will not be guest shuttle service for any of the events. Please let us know if you need help figuring out logistics!Do I have to pay for parking?There will be complimentary parking at all events. While there is ample parking at Saturday's wedding venue, carpooling and rideshares are encouraged on Friday and Sunday as the restaurant parking lot can fill up quickly, and there is only street parking available for the Sunday Brunch. Cars can be left at the wedding venue overnight but must be picked up by noon on Sunday, April 21.Can I bring a child or guest?As we are at near-max capacity for all events, we ask that you refer to the names listed on your invitation envelope for the specific people invited to our festivities. If you have any questions about this, please don't hesitate to reach out. The only exception is Sunday, which is a casual, family-friendly event, so please let us know if you'd like to bring a friend or your kids! We'd love to have them. What are we eating? I have an allergy or severe dietary restriction.As should come as a surprise to no one who knows our families, you can expect to eat super yummy food (and lots of it). While all of our events have set menus, we also want to make sure our guests leave full and happy! If you have an allergy or dietary restriction that we need to be aware of, please indicate this in your RSVP, and we will do our best to accommodate.What about gifts?Gifts really aren't necessary as long as you come full of love and ready to party. If you'd like to get us something, you can contribute to our Honeymoon Fund or pick something off our registry. If you do decide to give us something to unwrap, we would be very appreciative if you would ship it to our Sunnyvale home rather than bringing it to the wedding.I'm in! How do I RSVP?Please submit your RSVP for all events on this site by April 1, so we can get an accurate headcount. You can RSVP by scrolling up and clicking RSVP at the top of the page, then entering the name(s) listed on your invitation. Take the same steps to change your RSVP later if you need to, but please submit your final RSVP by April 1! If you have questions or this doesn't work, don't hestiate to e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Friday (Welcome Reception): The groom will likely be in khakis and a button-up or polo; the bride will probably wear a sundress. Feel free to come in post-work or first-date attire.
- Saturday (Ceremony & Reception): The wedding party will be in suits and semi-formal dresses, but the rest of you are welcome to wear springy cocktail attire suitable for an indoor dinner and an outdoor dance party. Don't forget your dancing shoes!
- Sunday (Easter Brunch): Come as you are! The newlyweds may still be in their pajamas, and others may come after church. Wear what's comfy for swapping stories from the weekend, eating food truck cuisine, and cheering the little ones on in their egg hunt. We plan to have a lifeguard on duty, so bring a swimsuit if you fancy a dip in the pool.
