    I know this has already been brought up. But when I did a search I didn't find much. My question is do we invite the ones who didn't go or should we invite everyone again?

      I personally am doing the same thing you are but I am inviting everyone to both events, and many people are going to both.... the way I see it, the more the marrier!

        I would say invite who ever you want to your AHR. I think AHRs are mostly intended for those not invited to the DW. But hey....it's your show and your money so do what you want.

          the vast majority of home receptions I shoot include the guests that were at the wedding as well..... its just a reason for everyone to party another day! :)

              How timely, I was wondering the same thing! i would agree that it makes sense to invite all to the AHR.

                We are doing just a bbq welcome home reception a few months after the wedding. My question is where do I put this information? Do I invite everyone and include it in the invite that we will be having a party once we get home for anyone who can't make it? We just know a lot of our family can't come because they can't afford it and want to have just a little something so they can look at pictures and videos, etc. Obviously we will send a real invitation to this but I want to put it somewhere so people don't feel obligated to come to the destination. :)Should I put it on my website? Any suggestions would be great!!! :) Thank you!

                  I invited everyone in IL since most people for CA (where i am from) are going to the wedding and the IL is for friends and family here that couldn't make it but yes i think themore the marrier and tons of fun!

                    Our invites for the DW were a folder and I had inserts with info regarding the wedding. I also added a little insert that stated we were having an AHR in March 09 and further info would be sent out regarding it. I have also posted it on our website, so those who didn't receive a DW invite could still get the info from there. We have also used word of mouth. Word of mouth worked really well for those who were not invited to the DW, since when the wedding would come up, we would say that we were having an AHR for everyone after we return, and then people didn't seem to get upset that they weren't invited to the wedding.
