Have Your Wedding and be Geeky, Too!

Mar 25, 2013

Dan and I got married back in July, and in the weeks up to the big day, I wrote a lot about it in my Geek Life column Bride & Geek. As there are many of you out there that may be new readers since Geek Life and nFamous merged, I felt like now would be a good opportunity to recap many of the geeky highlights from my wedding, including some pictures and other...

Bride & Geek: The Importance of RSVPs

Jun 6, 2012

Or, Don’t be a Dick if You’re Invited to a Wedding. Dan and I sent out our invitations to our wedding a few months ago, and while we received most of the RSVPs, there were still some that were missing [Editor's Note: Too nice to return. Receivers-keepers --Rob], so we decided to send out an evite to those who didn’t yet RSVP to see whether...
