    We are doing the Boarding Pass Save the Dates and Passport Invitations with the hole beachy starfish destination theme.

    Does anyone have any ideas what to do for our AHR invites?

      What kind of AHR are you doing? Formal? Informal? A lot of people invited? Time of year?

        Basically a PARTY!! Informal, around 300 plus people (my FI owns the 700 plus size bar where we are having it at) he knows a lot of people. We are having it on a Sunday in June

          That is exactly what we are trying to figure out.
          We had 28 guests at the wedding and invited 100 I think. Most of our family and a lot of our close friends were unable to make the trip. So we are trying to figure out what to do at home.....
          however, if 1 more person asks when we are having it I am going to scream.
          I had my bridal shower a week before the wedding and haven't even sent out Thank you's yet...and I am having a nervous breakdown about it right now.
          Thank God it is going to be a nasty day tomorrow and I am locking myself in the house and doing them all.

          For the AHR my husband wants to rent a house in our town, but on the water so that there is a place for his side of the family to stay (they are all about 4+ hours away from us) and where everyone else can come and hang out at the beach and use the boats and play. Then have a cookout of sorts one of the nights.
          I would rather do the same thing, but at a friend's house (which is free) and they live on a lake where boats and beach can still be used, but we can get a tent and a DJ if we want and have a bartender and all that.
          So right now I am trying to convice him, but will I win?

          What is everyone else doing? I didn't want to do a hall thing, because that is not us and we would have not done a destination wedding if that is what we were going to do in the first place.

            My FI and I are also doing an AHR. We are going to send out an invitation for our guests to attend the DW. The guests respond to a travel agent who keeps track of the number of people booked. We will also include a STD magnet and postcard for the AHR. This way our guests can send back the postcard and post the magnet on the fridge.
