You Are Cordially Invited...

Attention readers! L and I will host a bar night on Wednesday, September 8th starting at 7 PM at the Tenth Street Lounge (212 E 10th Street, between 1st and 2nd Avenues).

It's our way of putting faces to the many names of commenters from the past year and it will also be a great way to mark the end of as we know it.

Starting tomorrow one day of posts will equal one day of summaries from our wedding weekend. So, tomorrow will represent last Friday, Monday will represent last Saturday, and Tuesday will represent our actual wedding day. Make sense? Thursday and Friday of next week will wrap everything up with some of my final thoughts, announcements and, of course, thank-yous. I'm going to be posting like a madman as there is a lot left to say and not a lot of time left in which to say it.

So, please join us on Wednesday at the Tenth Street Lounge to celebrate! We'll even have some leftover candy and other goodies to give away. L and I would love to meet you all.

And please, no gifts.

If Tenth Street Lounge were anywhere near Seattle, my new husband and I would be there with you. I've really enjoyed reading your site and planning with you, and seeing it go is a little like saying goodbye to our own wedding festivities in July. :~( Best of luck to you both!

Same here, do you think you could have a party in every state in the U.S. I am in Nebraska and have enjoyed reading your site. Mu husband I were married in June, but I have remained a faithful reader. Congratulations!

Why didn't you have a Planet Gordon goodbye party here in Wisconsin?! I live in Wisconsin and heard about your site via the knot (yes I'm a knottie). I enjoyed reading your site during my wedding planning process and continued reading after I was married just 'to see how it would end' Big suprise, you got married! ;) Besides you were married on my husband's birthday.

Best Wishes to you both,

Thanks for hosting this, but how will people recognize you and L? On a slightly different note, as someone who is going to be married in
5 weeks, I really appreciate this site and the information you have posted in it.

We'll be in the back reserved section of the bar. I'll let the bartenders know what's going on - the host there already knows - but you can also anyone in the back and they will point us out. (I'll also post some pictures next week). Please come up and introduce yourself! We really hope you can make it.

"you can also anyone" = you can also ask anyone.
