Neither me or my FH wanted an AHR but I'm the first sibling to get married in my Indian family and a 35 person DW just didn't cut it for my parents. So they are planning and paying for an AHR a month after our DW. Even though neither of us are planning or paying, FH was already opposed because he (correctly) realizes that we will be planned and partied out by that point, but like I told him, this was the only compromise that made my parents happy and made me not want to throw things.
My parents are going all out, they even have a videographer + wedding coordinator, but me and FH don't! They've rented out a banquet hall, made separate invitations, selected the buffet course, picked the theme/decorations, bought me separate reception dress. Basically, they're putting a lot of energy into it and I know I'm going to be both exhausted and excited when it finally comes around.
