    My Dad lives on Kent Island so we are doing it in this little club house on the property of his neighborhood. I put a picture of it below.

    There is a thread on this forum under AHRs - I think from JerseyBride - or maybe a different girl - cant remember - but she had hers on the Chesapeake in Anne Arundel county and it was amazing. Very laid back and inexpensive. She was going to do a harbor dinner cruise but then found this venue and it was so much better and her pictures were really impressive. One of those places that does everything for you.

      AmyB, what a great theme for your AHR!! I can't wait to see it! And you're right, after planning a wedding, the AHRs are a piece of cake.

        I found it. It was posted by IslandBride and she's having at Kurtz Beach but she's having her reception on the same day I want to have mine. The pictures were nice though. I may call and see if there's another date in August available.

They are going to use bright orange ink for the names too so it will go with my centerpieces and the pink stripes will match my table runners. SWEET

            I was totally stressing last night and now I feel much better. Yes, $2 per place card is probably crazy talk, but right now it makes me feel better that its done and its Bermuda and everything is freaking expensive here - including my peace of mind - haha

            Oh - and my fellow Marylanders - I have organized my AHR to be a Maryland theme, since we'll be right on the Chesapeake Bay! We are having red & yellow table clothes w/ black and white napkins (to match the flag), black eye Susan flowers, ships and other nautical items as centerpieces, and a cup cake tower with little paper Maryland flags in them all. I am soooooo excited! And of course for gifts we will give little crab knockers and other crab accessories. Oh so easy and fun to do this theme - and such less pressure from the real wedding :)
            hey amy, seems like you're really getting loads done! bet you feel loads better and I love how easy you are finding your AHR (sorry the theme is lost on me as I don't understand it!! haha).

            strangely it has been the AHR that I have found most stressful! the wedding in Mexico has been a breeze in comparison - get options from WC and just pick....done! AHR has been like planning and organising a proper wedding!! lol

              hey girls,

              just a quick question...

              what are people doing about their engagement rings on the wedding day? is anyone leaving it on, or are you taking it off?

              just trying to decide what to do myself!!

                Hi Katie! You must be getting so excited! You leave this weekend, right?

                Typically brides put their E-ring on their right hand ring finger for the wedding ceremony and then switch it over for the reception. Mine fits OK that way but my best friend could not get hers on her right hand so I think her Mom held it for her during the ceremony and then gave it to her afterward.

                That sux that your AHR is making you stress out! I am doing an iPod and no photog kind of event, caterer will do everything for me - linens and chair rental, glassware, etc. - so its kind of a one stop shop. I am excited to do the food and wine tastings though - and the cake. We are going to Maryland June 25th to do it all - and together - which I kind of missed with planning a DW.

                  I was planning on taking my engagement ring off for the ceremony. Hadn't thought about reception, but I like the idea of putting it back on with my wedding ring.
