      Ours will be about a month after we get back from our DW.

      We are doing a very casual AHR on the rooftop deck of the bar/restaurant that FH owns.

      I will wear my dress ... but it's otherwise not a dressy affair.

      We ae having a low country boil and open bar ... as well as a band that will play on the deck. Not sure if there will be dancing but we aren't planning a first dance or any of that.

      Hopefully we'll have a slideshow of pics we can show from our photog ... but at the very least ... a slideshow of pics from DW guests.

      It's going to be an afternoon AHR (2-6pm) and then let everyone enjoy the city that evening.

      We will meet for brunch the following day for any out of towners who want to join us.

        Mine will be about a month after our wedding. Only FI's extended family will attend as my family will not be able to make it out to OH from CA, but thats fine since they are going down to Tulum wiht us. It was FI's parent's idea to do AHR for family here, which is fine and they have offered to help out with it. We are renting a park lodge and want to have it catered by Boston Market. We are also having a small chocolate fountain and some sort of cake, with non-alcoholic drinks(park rule=very cheap). I may wear my dress again; we'll show pictures and have ambiance music, and take some pictures, and maybe a guestbook, but no other formal wedding things. Like everyone else, I agree that it really is up to you, whatever you feel like doing is fine, no rules or standards to meet. Have fun and relax, there is enough stress in planning a destination wedding.

        Here is what I plan on putting on my invites; its more casual to reflect the non-formalness of the event.

        With the open sky above, sand at their feet, and the ocean as their backdrop,
        Groom and Bride will exchange vows in sunny Tulum, Mexico.

        Please join us as the celebration continues on Sunday the twenty second of June two thousand and eight for a casual luncheon reception

        hosted by Grooms Dad and Grooms Mom.

        Location: Spring Hollow Lodge
        Address
        City, State,

        Date: Sunday, June 22, 2008
        Time: 12-3pm

              I am getting married March 31st and having my reception June 7th.. We are having it in my fiances parents. I am just renting a big white tent, chairs, tables and hiring a band.

              A lot of family will bring food (almost like a pot luck). My mom wants me to purchase a wedding cake, so we will use the topper we bought for the wedding, at the reception.. We may weare what we are wearing at the wedding, because the dress I purchased is very casual.

              My dress
              Lavahut - Hawaiian Aloha Shirt, Tropical Wedding Dress, Matching Family Clothing, Island Luau Gifts & Pali Hawaii Sandals :: Women :: Hawaiian Dress :: Wedding Dress :: na'ni lo'a makama'e hawaiian dress
