Wilkergren Wedding Swank: 06/24/07

Aren't wedding websites the new "in" thing? Those of you who know us at all, know we are all about the latest trend--if it's free. So, this is the wedding website of Bethany Malmgren and Dylan Wilkerson. If you've found this, you are one of the more tech savy guests or you really like wedding blogs. We encourage your comments, your love, and your heartless ridicule. We love you!

Wedding Update: Weekend Activities

Dear Family and Friends!
We are so happy you will be able to attend our wedding weekend festivities! Wahoo! Dylan and I have a feeling you are going to enjoy yourself! Here are a few updates for on the weekend plans so far.

1) Travel Itineraries: If you are coming from out of town, please send us your travel itineraries as soon as possible, especially if you need to be picked up and dropped off at the airport. If you have already sent your itineraries, THANK YOU!

2) Hotels & Couches: Again, this applies only to the out of town guests. Most of you have contacted me if you need to stay at the Super 8, where we are encouraging most of our guests to stay. If you have not contacted me and you want to stay at the Super 8, please do this asap. The rooms are filing up. If you have requested a couch to sleep on, great! Just let me know if you have any allergies or special needs that need to be taken into consideration on where you sleep. For those of you in Los Angeles, you have a happy couch that could use a visitor, please let me know!

3) Friday Night, June 22: LOS DUGGANS, OLD BULL, WELL DIGGERS CD release party!
Dylan's two bands and our other favorite band in LA is have a triple-CD release party. We hope everyone will be able to make this special and fun-filled night. The energy will be rocking! Starts at 10pm.

Molly Malone's
575 South Fairfax Ave.
Los Angeles, CA 90036

4) Saturday day, June 23: During the morning, there is not much planned for activities. There are plenty of great restaurants for breakfast in our area. Also, there is a park and free tennis courts a few blocks away for those who would like to work off the previous nights booze. We have two pretty good tennis racquets if anyone wants to borrow them. And, if you want to help set up for the BBQ, we would love the help.

5) Saturday, June 23, 4pm: BBQ
We are asking all the LA folks coming to the BBQ to please brings a dish or something to grill. Think of it kinda as a potluck (like most of our BBQs). We will have some food, a keg and other drinks. The BBQ starts at 4pm, but you don't have to be there at 4pm. Whenever you would like to drop in will be wonderful.

At every family reunion, the Malmgrens have a wine tasting contest and we are having one on Saturday night, too. Just so no one feels less intoxicated or left out, I'm hoping everyone who wants to will participate. There are some rules:
a. The bottle of wine you bring to the competition must be $10 or less. No cheating!
b. It is encouraged, though not entirely necessary, that the wine come from your part of the world, ie the state or town that you live in, though for those coming from out of the US have the whole country to choose from.
c. With all the people coming to the BBQ, you might want to invest in 2 bottles of the same wine (enough for everyone to taste).
d. It doesn't matter if you bring white or red wine, though you will probably have a better chance of winning with a red.
e. The winner will get a prize!

7) Saturday, June 23: TALENT SHOW: 6pm
There are still a few spots open for the talent show. If you have changed you mind and want to participate: WAHOO! I should say, this is actually a talent/talentless program, so you don't have to worry about making a fool of yourself! Dylan and I are doing a musical number, meaning I'm singing! Ouch! Other talents include: hula hooping, pantomime, mumbling, dance, dance and more dance! You get the picture. Sign up now! (those of you signed up already, I will send a special e-mail to confirm).

8) Sunday Day, June 24: The Wedding: 6pm (finally)
Please don't be late! There will be some food and a few free drinks for guests, but we are encouraging any of those that want to please eat a large lunch and bring a flask! Dylan's brother, Travis, is graciously renting a school bus for our out-of-town guest to get to and from the our wedding site. The bus will pick up the guests at 5:30pm at the Super 8. It will drive guests back to the hotel (and Dylan and I) after the wedding and reception (around 11:30pm).

Wow, that's all for now. I know--we are nuts to do this all, but we really want you to feel like you've been run over by a train of fun at weekend's end!

Bethany & Dylan
