At Home Reception Question...

Recommended Posts

We would like to have a reception for those we weren't able to invite to the Mexico Wedding. Question is, how long after we return must the event happen?

 

We are back into FULL WORK mode when we return at the end of February, and our business schedules (and most likely, our budget) will NOT allow for anything until April (if that soon....).

I certainly am not Miss Etiquette but I know we are getting married early November. By the time we return it is holiday season so our plan is to actually wait until after the new year to have a celebration.

It's totally up to you ....

 

BUT there are a TON of threads about this that will help you out if you use the Search function and type "AHR" or "At Home Reception" into the Advanced Search field.

 

Good Luck!

I've read that it's appropriate to wait 4-5 months after the wedding, but if you're talking 8-12 months down the road it is not appropriate. We are getting married in November and we are also going tow wait until after the first of the year to celebrate. Maybe February or March.

We land back from Mexico on the Wednesday and are having our AHR on the Saturday!!! I've seen some people on here not having there's up to 12 months after!

It all depends on you and how you want to play it. Personally I wanted to keep it close together, but if your schedules do not allow you to do this then go with what suits you.

I'm kind of torn about this too. We're getting married in January and my mom wants to plan a summer time casual AHR. Aside from not even being sure if I want to have an AHR at all, 6-7 months seems like too long after the wedding. Ugh, why can't getting married be simple?? doh.gif

We are getting married in Feb. and having our party in June. Everyone that I have told about it thinks its perfect. No one really wants to go outside in February when you live in Wisconsin. June will be beautiful with good weather =)

 

Plus we will have a little time to save up more money after Mexico

ours is 2 weeks to the day after our mexico wedding....and our ahr is pretty much a full blown second wedding.

im going nuts planning two so close.

I think that too far down the road is a little inappropriate, but 2 weeks is a bit too soon!...a month or two would probably be perfect!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
