A Special Welcome from Joseph L. Greene, Chief Guest Concierge
Hi there web visitor!
My name is Joseph L. Greene.
As the Chief Guest Concierge at DanandHan.Wedding, I am pleased to be working with the Guest Relations Team to help you make the most of your trip to Jerusalem.
To that end, we have added some resources that we hope will be of use to you as you plan your visit. Let me run through those quickly for you.
Finding a Place to Stay
After exploring your flight options, the next question on your mind is probably going to be “where should we stay on the night of the wedding?”
Luckily, we have compiled this handy accommodation guide which contains options suitable for every budget and travel preference.
Of course, we highly recommend availing of the unique on-site accommodation package at The Scots Guesthouse.
Double room rates are approximately $150 and you get priority access to our LockIn post-wedding guest experience (note: the hotel is not open to the general public on the night of the wedding so you will be spending the night — and breakfast the next morning — in the company of wedding guests!).
Should I Come Early?
Many of our guests are travelling from the far ends of the world to “answer the call” of visiting Jerusalem for the wedding. Naturally, many want to take in the sites and surroundings of this ancient city while they are here.
To that end, we have put together Xperience, which is our official pre-wedding guest itinerary and will feature group activities commencing on 18/08 — the week leading up to the wedding.
If you want to join, you absolutely need to fill out this form so that we can make sure you need access to the itinerary (and to make sure that we have enough space on the tours we are organizing).
We’re confirming the exact schedule privately by email, but there will be tours both in Jerusalem and slightly further afield.
What Else Should I Do?
If you’re more of an independent traveler, then you might like to check out some of the sites in the city and country without enjoying the company of the amazing people we have invited to the wedding.
Of course, there is plenty of information to help you online.
But we have also put together this short guide containing some of our favorite eateries and things to do in the city. It contains some hidden gems that you’ll absolutely want to explore (and if you feel like visiting the nightlife, we highly recommend checking out one of Jerusalem Happy Hour’s pub-crawls — do so either independently or join our group field expedition during Xperience!)
And What About the Wedding?
Of course, you’re here for the wedding!
If you’re one of the select few that have been admitted to The VIP Club, then you’ll be able to access the VIP Tent (and wedding venue) several hours before the rest of our guests show up. Lucky you!
If not, don’t worry — not everybody can be a star. Please simply make sure that you show up at the time circulated in the confirmation email and please bear the photo identification that was requested of you.
Worried about being bamboozled by smashing plates and guttural-sounding noises uttered in a foreign tongue?
There’s no need to sweat.
This five-page e-book contains all the lingo and info that you need to follow what’s going on. We’ve valued the information we’ve crammed in there at more than $5,000 but — until our server runs out of bandwidth to serve downloads — we’re giving it away to you for literally zero cents. Can’t remember much about Daniel or Hannah? We have you covered on that front too. This guide details everything you need to know about them.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Do I need to arrange a visa prior to travelling — I am coming from Ireland / the US?
No and no. 90 day visitor visas are issued upon arrival at the airport.
Are you arranging shuttle transfer from Ben Gurion Airport?
I am gluten intolerant. Can you arrange a special meal for me?
Please note any dietary restrictions in your RSVP response. We will accommodate your needs as far as possible but neither the Guest Relations Team nor our catering partner can guarantee the provision of a meal that meets your requirements.
The Guest Relations Team and I are your first port-of-call in the event that you have any unforeseen changes to your RSVP or just need assistance before, or during, the wedding.
You can reach us via our online helpdesk or by dialing 051-598-1228.
Wishing you an incredible time in Jerusalem and at the wedding.
