NEW bride - ROR aug 08

Recommended Posts

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!

welcome.gif to the forum! I'm an August bride as well.

 

We are trying to plan an Atlanta get together sometime soon, so check out that thread and let us know if you want to hang out.

 

Happy Planning

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!!).

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
