How on earth has anyone managed to organize a wedding, ever?

Los Angeles Filter: I am a geeky/artsy gal who is currently based in NYC, who for various inextricable reasons is slated to get married in Los Angeles this summer. I am completely overwhelmed by LA and how little I know about it, but I am trying to make the most of the situation. I have a few questions which you LA-folk might be kind enough to help me with. I'm not the wedding-planning type at all, and so far my only main goal is that the wedding happen in an interesting place, which is somewhat compatible with my traditional extended family from their somewhat ostentatious culture. Big, giant sigh. [more inside]

Help me find a better bank.

I hate my big corporate bank that rhymes with "face". They keep screwing up, it's impossible to talk to someone on the phone who can fix their mistakes, and they have an aggressive campaign to screw over their customers with overdraft coverage. I'd like recommendations for a better bank or credit union in the Los Angeles area, for basic checking/savings accounts (and possibly an auto loan). Even better if it will work with Mint.com.
