    Why are you torturing yourself by trying to plan an at home reception? Can't someone else do this?? Your mom? Seems like a lot to deal with all at once!

            Welcome Welcome!
            I am driving myself crazy trying to pick a location to get married in, so at least you have managed that, good work! Actually, Dreams Tulum is one of the places I am considering. :) Glad to hear you have been there and loved it, since some of my reservations stem from the bad reviews I've read of the 'old buildings'... Although I called them last night and they said you can reserve the new building... so that's good!

            Can't you have a simple reception in Tulum, and then if anyone wants to throw you a party when you get back, they can?

            Just an idea... and welcome!
            Margaret & Eric

            Try not to stress too much. Invitations can be really fun! Depending on if you are doing a more casual wedding you can do things like passports, message in a bottle, or the traditional invite. I think destination weddings are exciting, so no matter what people will be excited with the invite.
            As for the at home reception, could you hold it in a park or at a local art museum? A lot of times smaller town art museums are a lot cheaper but make for a really great atmosphere.

              Thanks everyone for the warm welcome. I was telling people at work how I'm now on the computer about 6 hours a day since I got engaged...trying to figure it all out.
              So, I saw this cute palapa idea for the wedding couple (we're having a morning wedding and then hanging out on the beach the rest of the day with our friends until our cocktail hour). My mom and I are going to hang ivory and blush pink gauze all around whichever palapa my FH and I are going to hang out under that day. That's the idea that I'm currently excited about.
              I also want to get blush pink rice umbrellas for the ceremony. Seems like I'll be hoisting a lot of luggage.
              The AHR is still a mystery. I've tried some local city-owned places, and they're in way high demand. We're in a lottery for one, and the other one that is anywhere near decent is only available one time this year. So, still working on that.
              Aw, but it's kinda fun.
