What we have learned so far:
— We packed more as carry-ons alone for this trip than we did in all our bags for our entire 5-month trip around the world. Had everything we needed, but we will have to work on getting the volume down. It was only possible because we had Gigi’s extra set of hands. +1 infant = +4 pieces of luggage?
— Airplane bassinets for the win — kiddo slept for 5 hours straight across the Atlantic.
— This website is awful, but the service was incredible — TaxiBabySeat picked us up at the airport holding a sign with my name on it and had an infant car seat in the cab to transfer us to our apartment. And when we forgot a piece of luggage at the airport (there were so many to remember!) our driver circled back to help us retrieve it. We reserved our beautiful Paris apartment on AirBnB, which allowed us to search for a place with a washer and dryer.
— Kiddo loves Paris, though he’s always been pretty good at restaurants, and the inside of his babybjorn travel crib looks the same as it does at home.
All our carry-on luggage
and of course bebe’s first passport photo is adorable.
We’ve made all sorts of updates to the site recently — there is transportation information on the lodging & transportation page and we have added some details to our schedule page.
I am sure we will be making frequent updates in the coming weeks, so please check the site from time to time.
You can RSVP to all of the pre-wedding events on the RSVP page. If you RSVP’ed via snail mail, we marked you as attending the ceremony and reception and by default marked you as not attending any of our other events. If you plan to attend any pre-wedding activities, please let us know so that we can plan accordingly and supply adequate food and beverage. Please update your RSVP for all of the pre-wedding activities by the end of the week (Saturday June 30th). If you have any trouble with the website, feel free to just email me to respond.
What Erin and I have been thinking all week. As, Captain Jack Sparrow says, “A wedding, I love weddings!”
The site now includes transportation information!
Options for getting from Denver International Airport into downtown are now on the Lodging & Transportation page.
We don’t recommend driving to the ceremony, if it can be avoided, because there is limited parking. The Burnsley Hotel is within easy walking distance of the ceremony location and the hotel will also offer shuttle service to the ceremony.
If you are driving, you can find a map of the ceremony location and the overflow parking lot on the Ceremony & Reception page.
