Wedding gifts

Hello my fabulous friends and family. Matt will be sending out an email to direct you to this post, but while I have you here....

We received a wonderful gift from our registery with no name. It was from Dillard's purchased on October 2nd. It is the wooden 7 piece salad set. Let me know who you are dear purchaser! Shoot me an email or reply to the post.

Thank you all again for coming. We had such an amazing time!

The picture gallery is up for viewing.

Wedding attire

There seems to be some confusion on the attire. If you look down, there's a mention of flip flops and shorts....that was for the engagement party.

The attire for next Saturday is dressy. I like to call it "Driskill Dressy!" Basically, suit and tie for the boys and cocktail dresses or something fabulous for the girls. It's a rare occasion any of us get to dress up here in Austin, so break out your finery. It's going to be a blast!
