The Home Reception

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice. We are having our wedding by ourselves and then plan on having an at home celebration a few months later. I would like to incorporate my FI's neice and nephew into the reception in some way (he is 3 and she is 1). His SIL was a little upset when we said that we were having a destination wedding. Can anyone give me some sugestions? I feel like if I tell her they will have a part in the AHR she won't be upset.

 

Thanks,

 

Heather

They could do a sand ceremony with you! I've heard of couples saving the sand ceremony for their AHR so that others who could not attend can witness some kind of ceremony between the two of you. You could have each one of them have a colour and you could help them with the pouring. Another idea is to have them dress as Flower Girl and Ring Bearer and have them lead you into your party (if it's going to be at a hall or something) as the "grand entrance". Hmmmm...Let me think more on it!

Are you going to have a wedding cake there? They could also help you cut the cake. Another idea just came to mind too where you could have a small photoshoot with you wearing your wedding gown (even just somewhere like Sears!) and veil and they could be all dressed up in flower girl and ring bearer attire. They would be realllllly cute photos and a keepsake for them and you. You could include the pics in a slideshow at the AHR!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
