    • We feel like coming is gift enough. We would appreciate small contributions to the wedding cost for Aliya's parents in keeping with Kazakh customs.

    • We have a medical doctor who speaks English available for consultation.

    • You can find lots of travel and health tips on Google.

    • It is important to be careful with bacteria as in any travel to a far-flung country.

    • Uber is easy and cheap to use in Almaty.

    • People should feel free to wear whatever they want for the wedding, but Kazakhs will dress semi-formal. We can get Kazakh clothes for the wedding on the 24th after the spa, if you want.

We're so excited you can join us!
