However, my grandparents are not able to come to Mexico due to health issues which made having a destination wedding a really tough decision. So we are going to have an AHR 5 months later, when the weather gets a bit nicer, basically for my grandparents. I will wear my dress again, we will show pictures and videos from the trip. I am even thinking of doing a little vow renewal ceremony for them to see.
So, it is completely up to you... it isn't expected by any means but if there are some special people that are going to be left behind, then you may feel compelled to do one like I do.

Do we need to still have a reception at home for those who couldnt attend? I really dont have much dough left. even a BBQ for 125+ people would be costly.

at any rate, what i'd be having wouldn't really be a "reception" but more of a simple party. beer and margaritas maybe, the wedding video and pictures, and possibly a friend dj-ing, unless we spring for a bose sound dock and use an ipod.
