At first we were thinking to have an AHR, but the more and more we thought about it it wasn't really worth it! We are inviting 150 people to our wedding, and I bet 50-70 people don't come. We are having a reception after the wedding in Mexico, and to have all those people again at our AHR plus only those extra 50ish people doesn't make sense. An AHR isn't in our budget...the party is the most expensive part! We are having our legal ceremony in my parents back yard before we leave for Mexico, and the only people who will be there are our parents,siblings,and grandparents who aren't able to fly to Mexico.
Best of luck in your planning, don't feel obligated to have a reception for the people who can't make it to your wedding!!!!!!
