DIY for the Never Do It Yourself-er

I admit it — I’m not really one to do it herself. I am not a crafty person. I am in awe of crafty people. For instance, my almost mother-in-law. If she pins something to Pinterest, she will actually make it. And make it well. She’s like a MacGyver with a sewing machine. I made a pillow once in 7th grade. Other than the occasional button-to-shirt, which always looks a little bit off after, that’s all I can handle. Generally, I am of the mindset that if I have a choice between making pad thai and ordering it from a place down the street who makes it all day long and is essentially a pad thai expert, why would I risk putting the wrong amount of Sriracha in my food and potentially making it inedible. Being a New Yorker has spoiled me a bit in that way, I suppose — when literally anything can be steps from your door, you have to be pretty motivated to DIY.

A place to lay your head after partying the night away

Need or want a place to lay your pretty little heads after you've celebrated the marriage of two insanely awesome people madly in love? Well you're in luck!! I've secured room blocks at two lovely hotels in the Bk -- Sheraton Brooklyn and Aloft Brooklyn. The hotels happen to be next door to one another and less than one mile from the place where it's all goin' down, BLDG 92. 

If you're interested in booking, you can feel free to call either hotel (via the same number) to reserve a room -- 1.800.325.3535. Please let them know that you're with the Gillen/Binder wedding and you will be eligible for the (pretty significant) discount that I secured. 

A single king bed room is $179.00, and a two double bed room is $209. These rates are applicable on 7/4 and 7/5.

Or maybe you prefer a little less human interaction? Follow these links to reserve a room in our block directly from these exclusive Matt and Ashley are so cool urls!

More information on each hotel can be found on the links below too:
