Is this "appropriate"?

Recommended Posts

Ok ladies~

I just had a "light-bulb moment" and wanted to get your honest opinions.

We are getting married in January 2009 in Mexico, and WERE going to do an AHR in Colorado when we return. Obviously it's going to be friken cold, so it would have to be completely inside. The idea I just had was to do an engagement/pre-wedding AHR this summer in late August. This way we can do a nice outside BBQ at my parents house and we'll have A LOT MORE ROOM. The big BUT is: Does this seem tacky or wrong to anyone to do it before hand? If I'm gonna do this I need to get on the stick like TODAY. What do you think?? :)

I think it is a little odd. I would wait until after. Maybe you could have an engagement party before?

I agree with Kat...maybe have an engagement party or a coed bridal shower during the summer and invite everyone who won't be able to your wedding ...I think a cozy winter AHR with a blazing fire and snow outside is very romantic...

Well, the point of this is to Eliminate an AHR in January. The roads here will most likely be a snow-packed mess. We definetely don't want to do that anymore. I think we'll just stick to a party this summer with all our friends and not label it anything that way it will be cool. :) Thanks:)

i'd have an engagement party or just a bbq for no reason. i think a pre-nuptual ahr is odd....that being said, we were supposed to go to a pre-wedding ahr today. it was for the ppl who couldn't make it out to cali, but in actuality, the bride and groom uninvited 1/2 of the wedding guests (they said it was out of hand), so they were serving hot dogs and hamburgers to get gifts.

WOW nothing like being blunt about it lol.

I think you should just have a party like you said. Just make it a wedding sendoff!!!

Also, the LAST reason I am doing this is for gifts. In fact, we aren't even registered anywhere because we already have everything we need. It's very important to us to have our friends involved in someway. We chose to have a very small wedding, and only invited family and a few close friends. I think a "send of party" sounds great. Thanks for the honesty ladies it helps a lot!!! wink.gif

Kat, said exactly what I was going to say... engagement party. We had ours 5 months before the wedding.

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
