This takes a load of my mind as well as budget by having the AHR only.

But I nixed the idea because A. we don't have the extra money for it, even though it wouldn't be that expensive, B. I don't want to plan anything else before the wedding. C. We had originally wanted to do this because we didn't think a lot of our friends would make it, but I think most of FI's friends are coming, and my of my friends, the girls are the only ones I really care about seeing, so my sister is doing a regular bridal shower for me and I will see all of the ladies there instead.
So unless my mom decides to plan & pay for something, we're not doing it.

I didn't expect it just thought maybe they would offer and now that I'm realizing how much $$$ its going to cost I'm wishing they would heheh
Melissa, I feel the same way. My parents aren't super well off, but they're not broke either. And I know how much money they gave my sister for her wedding, so even if they subtracted what they are paying for there travel to mexico, I should still be getting a couple thousand dollars from them, every bit helps! They haven't even mentioned it and it kind of makes me mad!! My dad owns his own business and his busy season is coming up soon, so right now he doesn't have anything to give me, but I'm hoping once the busy season is done he'll give me something, but my mom I know has money in the bank and it just hurts me that they haven't even offered and I know they paid for about half of my sisters LARGE wedding.

Plus, our friends all trade off on a holiday party (1 friend does christmas, another new years canada day etc...) Ours is May 2-4 so we will be having a party anyway. So it won't be a big production. We will likely invite more than the usual number of people though, and maybe have a pig roast. mmmmm....
