      Welcome to the forum. I've photographed two receptions that were after the wedding, way after the wedding. One couple were married in Switzerland and had a reception here in L. A. for all of their Stateside friends and family, and that was during their Christmas break, and in between moving countries. So they fit it into everyone's schedule, and having a holiday time reception worked for them. They are now in Sydney! Lots of frequent flyer miles, This couple waited six months.

      The other couple got married down in Cabo and then three months later had a Halloween themed reception for all of their friends and family, although most of the fam went with them to Cabo.

      I think its really up to you and what works best for your group of people that are going to be attending the reception.

          Welcome and Congratulations!

          I am planning a formal AHR 1 1/2 months AFTER our DW. I knew we'd want a little down time after getting home from our DW, and also knew we might need a little extra time for all those little touches that I might have forgotten because I was focussing so much on the DW. There's a couple great threads on the site where people spit out very good reasons for having one right away and then waiting!

          Just start searching...you're gonna find everything you need/want and MORE!

              Welcome to the forum!!
              Three and a half months is not too long and you could definitely put
              "no gifts please. your presence is your present" if you are worried about the whole gift problem. Maui is wonderful! I'll be there this November for a wedding. I'll let you know how it goes.

                Welcome and Happy Planning!

                I'm having a big AHR for 300 a month after my DW. Our guests are thinking of it as a gift grab because so many of them are unable to travel.
