    The Day Of
    Who’s the wedding ninja?
    Meet Merida. Yes, her name is pronounced like the Disney princess, but our Merida is much more of a badass. Merida is the couple’s wedding planner-coordinator-wrangler extraordinaire. She and her team have carte blanche to do whatever they need to so that Nic and Armand have the best day ever.
    If you need something on the day of the wedding, ask Merida. +1 (215) 527-5344Is there a dress code?
    While Nic loves her cozies and athleisure, Armand loves any excuse to dress up. Marriage is a compromise, right? Our wedding will be black tie optional.
    What time does the ceremony begin?
    Please be sure to be seated in church no later than 12:30p. We’re still working out timing with Monsignor and will have an update soon.
    Is it okay to take pictures with our phones, iPad, and/or cameras during the wedding?
    Our friends from Dreadko Media will be spending all day and night with us, capturing every moment. We’ve paid these fine folks to be the photographers for our events. We will share their pictures after the wedding - promise.
    Do not be these people. Put the devices away.During the reception, you’re invited to take as many pictures as your heart desires.What can we do between the ceremony and the reception?
    There will be a ~2.5ish hour break between the ceremony & reception. While the wedding party uses this time for photos, you could:
    1. Explore Main Street. There are so many shops, boutiques, coffee joints and bars.
    2. Grab a light snack or a cocktail.
    3. Relax or nap at the hotel.
    4. Make new friends in other guests attending the wedding.
    What time is dinner served?
    Drinks and hors d'oeuvres will be served during cocktail hour, beginning at 5p EST with dinner to follow. Come hungry.
    I have a severe food allergy.
    If you have a severe food allergy, please contact Nic as soon as possible. You'll be able to provide this information with your RSVP.
    Will there be an after party?
    The reception will conclude at 10p and there will not be a formal after party hosted by the newlyweds. While there is no hotel bar, Main Street is 2.5 miles from the hotel.
    Are you planning to have a registry?
    Since we've been together for 800 years, we have all of the physical items we need... and then some. We will not be having a traditional gift registry. If you'd like to give us wedding gift, we ask for monetary gifts toward our honeymoon or our future home.
