    Hi all!

    A week ago, I have finalized the location of our ceremony in ROR. I thought the stress would be over, but now i have to plan the reception back home (atlanta) for those who cannot make it to Jamaica. The party will be 2-4 weeks after the wedding.

    Any suggestions for the reception? Is a destination wedding reception similar to a regular wedding reception? Do we still have to have the traditional elements: father/bride and mother husband dances, cutting a cake, etc... or is it just a party?
    THanks,
    Kelly

          Welcome to the forum!

          Because DWs are non-traditional, you really don't have to have a traditional reception (AHR =at home reception) unless you want to.

          Ours will be fairly traditional--we'll wear our dresses/suits, have a cake and lots of food, drinks and dancing. Other girls are having themed back-yard BBQs!

              I agree, a DW is what you want it to be, you shouldn't feel obligated to add anything you don't want to (although you shouldn't feel that way for any wedding either!!).

                    Welcome Kelly.
                    For our AHR, we are having a pig roast, dj, and pics from the wedding. No traditional dances or anything but its up to you.
