I know I didn't answer everyone's question with this post, and I know I probably answered some questions that no one actually asked me. So, if there's anything else you would like to know please email it to me at: cburright at (My email address is typed out like that because of phishing losers.) I'll probably respond with something funny to say and then post it here to show everyone how clever I am.


Not really!

And on to the questions:

Where should I stay?
In the event that no one in Omaha offered up their guest bedroom or couch to you (what jerks!), we suggest making a reservation at the Holiday Inn on 72nd and Center. We did not reserve a block of rooms, but this particular hotel is close to the wedding site and easy on the pocketbook.

Holiday Inn and Convention Center
3321 S. 72nd Street
Omaha, NE 68124

Where is the reception?
It's in the same place as the wedding! In fact, you don't even have to get out of your seat to go from the ceremony to the reception. The party comes to you!

What should I wear?
Well, the wedding and reception are in a tent, so you'll be outdoors in September, in Nebraska. That means it's either going to be 100 degrees outside or it's going to snow. (Maybe you should wear something casual-dress for warm weather and leave a parka in the car just in case?) Go ahead and skip the formal, just come as yourself. And if "yourself" happens to be daisy dukes and an NFL jersey, well that's just fine with us.

What weather can we expect?
Again, sweltering heat or snow are both options you might want to consider. In all actuality though, it will probably be quite warm during the day and a little cooler at night. But that's not a guarantee. Nebraska is known for wacky temperatures so just check out the morning's forecast when you get here. Pack a light jacket if you're coming from out of town and you should be good.

What's for dinner?
The wedding starts at 6:00, dinner might not be until 6:30 or 6:45 just to let you know. You will be fed though, don't you worry about that. Vegetarian options will be served. (Vegetarians still eat yak meat, right?) Don't forget to save room for desert.

Are you two registered somewhere?
We would never expect anyone to bring us a gift. We're just thrilled that you're going to come celebrate with us. However, we went ahead an assumed that everyone would still want to shower us with expensive presents and we registered at Target.

Where are you going on your honeymoon?
Why? Do you want to come too? We're going to San Francisco! We went there in February for a couple of days and fell in love with the city. It was warm and sunny, full of museums and record stores, and had good food to eat on every corner. It was Mecca for us.

Can I request you play a certain song at the reception?
No way! Who do you think you are???

I'm kidding!!! Will your hubby only dance to Juice Newton's "Queen of Hearts"? Well, that's totally weird but we'll still play it for you. Just let us know if there's something you want to hear. This is going to be an iPod wedding so email your song request ahead of time so we can not-illegally-but-maybe-kind-of-illegally download it. (send to: cburright at The only song that we will veto is "The Chicken Dance" for obvious reasons.

Is Ringo going to be there?
Sadly, no. Ringo will be sitting this one out. That's too bad because he already got himself a tux...
