How to find out when a wedding gets off the ground in Georgia
Get ready to get your wedding on the road soon, because Georgia is getting ready to host the nation’s first get-together in the U.S.A. Get ready for the big day: This will be the first time in nearly 50 years that Georgia will hold a get-me-together for weddings.
A celebration will be held on April 17, 2018 at the University of Georgia.
More than 60,000 people will attend the get-to-know-you event at the Georgia Tech campus.
A traditional, two-day get-away is also on the agenda.
“It’s a great opportunity for all Georgia students and students of all ages to network, learn about one another, and celebrate the love of their life,” said Gertrude Smith, Georgia Tech’s director of community and service.
The Georgia Tech event will be followed by a ceremony and reception at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis hotel, which is located about a mile away from the university’s campus.
The Georgia Tech ceremony will be preceded by a reception at a local venue, the Atlanta Music Hall of Fame.
It will be a special day for all, said Jennifer DeStefano, a university spokeswoman.
“We are going to bring together all of our students, faculty, staff and alumni to celebrate our rich history and the legacy of Georgia Tech and the Atlanta community,” DeSteffano said.
According to the Georgia State University website, the get the event will begin on Monday and will last about two days.
The first stop will be Atlanta, where about 200 people will be gathered to celebrate.
Georgia Tech, a historically black university with a long and storied history in Georgia, is a member of the Georgia Christian Association and has hosted get-the-dinner events for decades.
Last year, Georgia hosted a get to know you event for all of its undergraduates.
The students gathered at a restaurant and then had dinner at the house of the president.
This year, the Georgia College Republicans will host a get together, with the goal of raising money for a youth service organization, and the goal is to bring Georgia students together for an event of social and civic importance.
In 2014, Georgia’s Board of Visitors approved a request to hold the first get to meet of the year.
