Our Story
How We Met

On 29 June 2014 at 6:47 pm ET, Life_Lift messaged missrex. After 9 IMs on OKCupid over the course of a month, they met up on a Sunday evening for drinks at John Harvard's Brewery in Framingham, MA. The date obviously went well.

You want me to come to Bermuda for just a weekend?


Bermuda is a gorgeous island with lots of history and pink sand - don't you want to stay for longer? We plan to stay for a week after the wedding!

What are you talking about?

We are hoping you are interested in spending the week after the wedding with us in Bermuda. This is the one time in our lives that all our friends and family will be in the same place - why should we limit our time together to one weekend?

We are NOT talking about endless events and activities for a week - it's your vacation too and we all need to relax! The concept is laissez-faire and, with everyone staying at the same hotel/close to the hotel, we are all bound to bump into each other. By staying an extra week, we don't need to rush trying to catch up with you and, hopefully, you will be able to justify flying out to Bermuda to join us for this happy occasion.

When do I need to RSVP by?

The deadline for RSVPs is Wednesday 14 March 2018. You need to both RSVP and book your hotel room at the Fairmont Southampton by this date. Information about the Fairmont's room rates is available under the DETAILS menu or you can click here to go straight to the hotel booking portal.

I plan to wait for a flight/hotel deal to come out closer to the time - any idea of when that would be?


Bermuda is not your typical island that has cheaper offerings closer to departure. It is small enough and pretty enough that they regularly sell out hotel rooms and airfare in advance. Please book your hotel and flights as soon as you possibly can to avoid high prices!

Wait, aren't you going on a honeymoon after the wedding?

No - we are not going to do a traditional honeymoon. We have our whole lives to travel as a couple and we'd rather spend more time hanging out in Bermuda as a group.

But I can't stay an extra week!

That's OK!

We know your time is precious -- the weekend, four days or a whole week, it doesn't matter to us as long as we see you!

Can I bring my kids to the wedding?

We ask that you arrange a babysitter for anyone under the age of 18 for all wedding events however it is up to you about bringing them to Bermuda. Again, it's your vacation too!

Babysitters are available through the Fairmont and you can find out more about their family services by clicking here.

Why Bermuda? Why not somewhere closer to home?

The concept of 'home' is difficult. Well, for Maddie it is. Is it Texas? Is it Cheshire? Is it Edinburgh? Should it be Boston?

Who knows. Who cares! Bermuda is a nice island in the middle of all these important places.
