Talk to me about your AHR
Posted 02 October 2008 - 08:44 AM
We are expecting about 140ish people, we're holding it in a ballroom at a nice hotel, having a lovely plated dinner with lots of drinks! and basically, the rest of thing will be just like a traditional wedding...sans the ceremony!
The whole theme of the evening is going to be Old Hollywood (as we both LOVE movies and music) and we have this awesome "Hollywoods Best Kisses" reel (x2) that will play during cocktail hour. My cousin is going to be our "MC" and she has been in like 30 weddings...so she's going to do the whole "wardrobe change" before every introduction speech! The Bridal Party will be wearing their fancy shmancy outfits again...cake cutting, first dance, garter toss, bouquet toss...all of it.
Though having both is expensive, I'm thrilled at the idea of both, and have pretty much planned the AHR already, so I shouldn't be TOO stressed by the time the big day(s) roll around.
I say...try to implement all the best elements from both you and FI's ideas of the AHR day...and really try to collaborate on it. Compromise. Me and FI have had a lot of fun together trying to plan the whole night, and I think it is going to be a LOT of fun!

For those of you who planned smaller parties, how did you limit the guest list without hurting anyone's feelings? And when did you send out the invites if you had a delayed reception?
