  • Can we bring our kids?
    Yes! Please! Kids are welcome. We love kids and kids love to dress up. If you are bringing your kids let us know under the “Anything we should know?” section of the RSVP form, because the system only lets you RSVP for up to 2 people.
  • Can I wear white?
    YES! This isn’t a “wedding” per se it is the reception - and it's a costume party. And also your bride ain’t like that. Please wear whatever color or colors you wish!
  • Can I bring more than one "plus one"?
    YES! If you want to bring the whole fam, please do. Just let us know under the “Anything we should know?” section of the RSVP form, because the system only lets you RSVP for up to 2 people.
  • Am I culturally appropriating?
    No. You're being invited to a Mexican person's wedding reception. Sam is also Jewish - we are going to mix old and new traditions. And you have Kiki's permission to lean in fully and culturally and get as into your sugar skull drag as you want. The key here is have fun and celebrate!
  • What if I lose my orange tickets or my wristband?!
    We have extras. Either see Kiki or Sam during the event and we can give you a replacement.
  • Is there parking?
    Yes. There is angled, perpendicular parking all along Sloat Ave - btween 41st ave and 47th Ave. There is also ample street parking all around the United Irish Cultural Center.
  • Is there wheelchair access?
    Yes. The United Irish Cultural Center has an elevator and wheel chair access. The entrances are ADA compliant. And we can make special accommodations if you need to be seated at a table or near the back of the room. Email Kiki/Janaya if you need any special accommodations:
  • Where can we stay in San Francisco?
    On our website if you scroll down to the "Getting There" section under that is an "Accommodation" section and we have listed a number of hotels that you can call to make reservations. The average pricing of rooms for the fall season is listed next to the hotels. We also recommend the historic art-deco Ocean Park Motel which is one block from the United Irish Cultural Center. It is locally owned, and has great ratings. Kiki & Sam are staying there on the night of the reception. The Hampton Inn Daly City is an 11-minute taxi ride from the United Irish Cultural Center and is also a comfortable stay. The Seal Rock Inn is a VERY old-school San Francisco hotel. It is an 8-minute taxi ride from the United Irish Cultural Center.
  • What do I wear?
    We HIGHLY encourage everyone to dress up. Life is just more fun that way. This could be a great excuse to buy that Nudie Suit you've always dreamed of. Maybe you want to break out your most elaborate sugar skull makeup skills! It might be easy and sensible to reuse and recycle your recent Halloween costume. You can wear what you usually wear to weddings and keep is casual. Or you might want to go full Traje and wear your Mexican heritage with pride. It is not mandatory for you to dress up, though. So if you don't have the energy or time, just show up as you are. We just want to be with all of our friends and family.
  • What are the orange tickets?
    These are your - literal - meal tickets. Each ticket is good for 2 tacos from the food truck. There are also appetizers inside the venue at the buffet tables on either side of the hall.
  • Is this the wedding-wedding?
    Well…it’s the wedding reception. The actual sign-the-marriage-license-do-the-paperwork-“Do you?”-“I do” business will have already happened in a small private ceremony on Halloween. However, on Nov 3rd the couple will share their vows before all of you, which they did not do on Halloween. Basically, we let you skip the boring part and get right to the fun part.
  • Do you have a registry?
    We've had a few people ask about a registry. We are not registered, but if you would like to send us a gift you can send a cash denomination through our paypal account here - we will be using the funds towards our honeymoon. Kiki's email address is You do not need to have a Paypal account of your own to donate to our honeymoon fund. If you scroll down to the bottom of the screen there is a button that says "Pay with Debit or Credit Card". We decided to do it this way instead of using HoneyFund or The Knot, because they take a steep percentage of each donation. Thank you in advance for your generous gift.
  • Where is the venue located?
    United Irish Cultural Center in San Francisco. It is at 2700 45th Ave at Wawona Street three blocks from Ocean Beach.
  • What is an ofrenda and what may I contribute?
    An ofrenda is an altar for our ancestors, relatives and close friends that have passed. Mythology says that the veil between the living realm and the realm of the dead is the thinnest at the dark cross-quarter; usually this falls anywhere between Oct 31st-Nov 3rd. The ofrenda is a beacon, inviting our beloved dead to join us in celebration while that veil is thin. It's the time of the year when they can be the closest to us again. An ofrenda often has 3-levels: bottom, middle and top. We usually leave offerings to our loved ones on the middle level. Offerings should be things that they liked when they were alive; a certain type of candy, their favorite kind of cigar, a shot of whiskey, or for a child a little toy they might have liked to have had. Please only bring representational items. You can take them back with you at the end of the night, but please do not bring anything of real or sentimental value, or anything you want to get back. We don't want anything of real value to get lost.
