Also, if we fill 80% of the wedding block, there's a free suite upgrade for the bride and groom (that would be us), so we'd like to thank you in advance for helping make our night just a little more special.

I just ordered my headpiece from a wonderful girl in the UK who makes the most amazing fascinators. its lots of black and white mixed printed netting, a birdcage veil and some feathers, im VERY excited about it! i basically told her i trusted her judgment on the fabric choices so just go ahead and create and send me a pic when its all done. i did the same thing with my dress, i wont see that either until its all finished and at my doorstep :) im either super adventurous or completely crazy. or a little bit of both!

We were very surprised to learn just how few hotels there really were in the area. There's some hotels out by the airport (too far: "Thanks for coming to our wedding and sitting in traffic for an hour on the way over from your hotel), and all up and down 3rd ave (too industrial: "Thanks for coming to our wedding, but don't worry you won't get mugged, it just looks like you will"), but for the most part Park Slope has a YMCA and handful of BNB's. I imagine they don't have 20 room blocks they could hold for us, six months out with no down payment but thankfully corporate America comes through again! We've already received a response from the Brooklyn Bridge Marriott, and have submitted an RFP to the new Sheritton just around the corner. I doubt we can squeeze a bidding war out of them, but at best we'll be able to offer guests a choice depending on whichever reward program you might have. They're gonna be in the $200/night range, not sure about parking but there are plenty of garages in the area. If that's a little too steep, you better call dibbs on our couch now as the current resident (or mayor if you go by 4Square methodology) will probably beat you to it.
