Hoo? Hoo? Hoo's getting hitched?
We're Getting Hitched.
Here's the plan. July 5. Plymouth, Massachussetts. Native American and Pilgrim garb: optional. (Actually, the place we are getting married prohibits anyone but their employees from dressing as either Pilgrims or Native Americans, so plan accordingly and leave your buckle-strap shoes at home.)
For now, just plan on getting to Plymouth for the July 4 weekend and securing a place to stay.
For people flying, you can fly into either Boston's Logan International Airport or Providence, Rhode Island. Both are about an hour from Plymouth. To get to Plymouth from the airport, you can rent a car or take a shuttle from Logan to Plymouth. The idea with the weekend is that once you're in Plymouth, you shouldn't need a car.
Unless you're planning on stowing away on the Mayflower II, which we really cannot discourage more strongly, you'll probably need to reserve some hotel rooms. We recommend, in descending order of recommendations, The John Carver Inn (888-906-6181; new room reservations are extension #2) and the Bradford Inn and Suites (508-746-6200). There's also a Best Western and Hotel 1620 at Plymouth Harbor within walking distance of the action. But, neither has the Pilgrim Cove Pool (or the imprimatur of official sanction) of The John Carver, nor the seedy charm of the Bradford Inn and Suites.
A room at the John Carver is going to cost you about $400 total for the nights of July 4 and 5. We are not able to reserve a block of rooms at the John Carver, so it is important to book your rooms sooner rather than later because it will fill up for the 4th of July weekend and rooms are on a first-come-first-reserve basis.

More information about the wedding:
We are getting married at the Plimoth Plantation. It's about a five-minute drive from downtown Plymouth. We're going to have a shuttle run laps from the John Carver Inn before and after the wedding and during the reception.
Weather permitting, the wedding ceremony is going to be outside in a lovely garden that's fertilized with the bones of pilgrims passed. So, wear shoes that are garden-ready but will translate onto the dance floor.
