Arrival Times

Bridesmaids & House Party

Plan to arrive at the venue by 10:30 AM to begin getting ready. I have robes for you all to wear, but you might want to bring a tank top/shorts to wear underneath. I am paying for your hair to be done, but you will need to do your own makeup. Please have a picture of what you want your hair to look like!

Groomsmen & Ushers

Plan on arriving at the venue by 2:30 PM to get dressed and hang out (there will be satellite TV & a DVD player in suite).

Additional Info

Wedding Party app

Download the Wedding Party app (iPhone/Android) and enter our wedding name: steph+ryansayido. You can also view the online version here.

This app lets you upload pictures from our wedding events to share with all of our guests in real-time (replacing the disposable cameras). Please be respectful and do not get in our professional photographer's shots though!

Friends & Family Message Line

Our DJ provides an awesome service where ALL of our family and friends can call a toll free number to record a minute long message that will be played for us during the wedding reception (& we get to keep a copy). Please take advantage of this and leave us a message of congratulations/marriage advice/fond memories! This service is especially amazing for those of you who are unable to attend the wedding, but still want to be a part of our big day.

Key things to remember:

  • Include our names and wedding date at the beginning of your recording (Stephanie & Ryan, March 8, 2014).
  • Don't tell us what you said in your message, the surprise is part of what makes it special!
  • Be aware of background noises (dogs barking, children playing, TV, etc). If you are not in a quiet place, it may be better to call back when you can be.
  • Speak clearly and as if you were speaking directly to us. Our DJ will remove any unnecessary "uhms" or "ands," so don't worry if you use them. It is best to speak in phrases and take your time during the minute you are provided.
  • Don't forget to mention the "firsts," recalling fond memories and funny or special times together.

Now that you're ready, here is the number:


Are you ready for this?!?!

The main goal of our wedding is for us to have FUN celebrating our love for one another... so prepare to be silly. We can't dance, but that won't stop us! So brush up your dancing skills to songs like Ice Ice Baby, Can't Touch This, The Wobble, Crank 'Dat Soldier Boy, etc and be working on shaking it like a salt-shaker and/or polaroid picture, letting your tootsie roll, and dropping it like it's hot! :P

You will all be introduced to the song "Bring 'Em Out" by T.I. at the reception. The bridal party dance song I selected is "The Harlem Shake," but I'm not entirely sure we'll actually do that.
