Drove to the Hamptons again

I drove out to the Hamptons again today to see the place we chose for the room block. It’s called The Inn at Quogue. I got to see the different types of rooms available so I can give everyone advice on which room would fit them best. I also saw (and really liked) the layout of the whole area. I love that the two main buildings are from the 1600s and 1700s. It is also on the edge of a quaint downtown area which is very cute. They have a restaurant, bar and pool on site and a breakfast/diner next door. They also have free passes for the beach and bikes available for rent. Lastly, there is a nice grassy area with a grill, which I think will be perfect for the evening before the wedding. We can all hang out and have a low key barbecue and then head over to the bar once night falls.

I also stopped by Atlantica again to go over details for the rehearsal. Our plan is to have an afternoon rehearsal and lunch and then relax at the hotel a little before having the barbecue. I really had no idea what to expect in terms of the cost of the rehearsal (especially because of the high price tag of the reception) but I was pleasantly surprised. Since we’re doing a lunch rehearsal we will also get to have a totally different menu from the reception.

My last stop today was to Michael’s to pick up some decorations for the engagement party next weekend and look for supplies for the wedding cake topper. I have an idea for a totally unique topper that I plan to make myself…if I can find everything I need. Wish me luck!
