Guest Information


Both the ceremony and reception are in downtown Grand Rapids, and because of the small gap in time between the two, you may find yourself with a bit of free time. There are a large number of things to do within a reasonable vicinity to the reception. To give you an idea of a select few of your options:

  • Learn a bit more about the city that Andy and Sarah call home and take the GR Tag Tour, an interactive tour that will lead you around downtown Grand Rapids using your smart phone, and will drop you off right in front of the Art Museum for the reception.
  • Support the arts and take in an exhibition at the Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts.
  • Looking to have a drink or kick your feet up and relax with your down time? Check out one of Andy and Sarah's favorite places:
    1. Hop Cat
    2. The Bob


Sarah and Andy have registered at Bed, Bath, and Beyond. If you feel so inclinded, you can find their registery by searching for either one of their names or registry number 12661064.
