(Yes, I'll be moving to another platform soon. no, I don't trust the new LJ owners. Right now, time sisgning up for somethign new is time I wouldn't have to type this out.)
As most of you should know by now: Getting married! May 20th! Whoo!
...as some of you know by now: There's been problems with the venue for the reception. Plan A was double-booked, and Plan B has a dealbreaker of a restriction. So we're onto plan C, with a plan D as backup. (Something like C-7 and D-2, actually). The current new venue for Plan C is the US Coast Guard Academy Alumni Building. located in New London, CT. We're going for a physical look on Monday, but everything looks like it'll be a fine place indeed. Nice building, plenty of space, solid facilities...
It's just going to be about 10 times our original projected venue costs.
Now, some friends have organized some crowdfunding to cover the costs. This is tremendously appreciated, as will be any donations. That said: don't anyone feel like they need to donate. We're going to be okay. We're having the reception, and we'll make rent, and all that. We're going to be okay, and if your choice is between throwing $20 at someone with deep financial and medical needs, or us.. do the former.
