What do we do at an AHR?
Posted 29 March 2008 - 05:07 PM
Anyway, our wedding date is November 18th (we get home either the 21st or 23rd) and I'm thinking of doing it on Sunday November 30th. Is that too early? I didn't want to do it after Christmas and I figured December is too busy with holiday events. There most likely will be 100 people and I'm thinking a lunch? Some of our friends can really drink and we can't afford the cost of them all getting drunk (plus the worry of having them drive). So if we did a lunchtime AHR on a Sunday...what do we actually DO at it? I mean, we'll show pictures from the wedding but aside from that??

I don't think it's too early, unless you would need more planning time when you get home from your trip. Think about it, is the first thing you want to think about when you get home from your magical vacation a stress causing huge party?

And I wasn't thinking a huge party - only 100 guests. We used to live in a place with a huge backyard and would often have BBQ's for 60+ guests so I'm not too worried about the number of people. I would have just done the AHR in our backyard but we bought our first place and now live in a townhouse.
The thing is, I'm just not sure what to do with the guests for three hours. I won't be wearing my dress (I'm doing a TTD in Mexico) and we're not big on speeches etc. So basically it would just be everyone 'hanging out' for three hours? It seems like I should have something to entertain them or something.

Any other suggestions?

Anyway, it ended up really really fun. We did nothing other than assemble, play music, drink, and have people come cook at a taco stand in the garden at my parents' house. There were photo albums of our wedding and honeymoon on a table for people to look at if they wanted. We played cards/dominoes and hung out. It was lots of fun and can be whatever you want it to be - ceremonious or carefree.

Taco bar sounds really fun! Might have to steal that idea...ours is going to be very casual and "fiesta" themed - might do a pinata, have some fun drinks and Mexican style food and music...just a fun party!
